After two losses to 2015 Indiana 6A champ Center Grove last season, Warren Central got some revenge Friday night. The Warriors beat Center Grove, the #22 team in the High School Football America Preseason Top 25, 21-16 in the season and Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference opener for both schools.
Warren Central, ranked #41 in the High School Football America Preseason Top 50, was led by quarterback Zach Summeier, who was 26-of-38 for 258 yards and two touchdowns, plus he ran for 56 yards. Center Grove played most of the game without its star running back Titus McCoy, who was injured on the team’s second series of the game. McCoy rushed for over 1,900 yards in 2015.
Center Grove led the game 14-7 at halftime.
Next-up for Warren Central, the Warriors will travel to Ohio next week to take-on Colerain, ranked #20 in the High School Football America Preseason Top 25. Center Grove will be at Whiteland next week.
