Wayne High Eliminated From C1 Playoff First Round, Area Scores

ALBION – As eight-man high school football teams advanced to their third round, 11-man teams began their postseason Friday.

In Class C1, #14 Wayne High traveled back to Albion for the second time in the past three weeks to visit #3 Boone Central.

Boone Central scored 21 straight points before WHS tacked on a late touchdown as the host Cardinals held on for the 42-35 victory over Wayne High. The Cardinals improved to 9-1 and will next visit #11 Columbus Lakeview (who won at #6 Milford, 42-20) as WHS ends their season at 5-5.

WHS led 28-21 to start the fourth quarter but turned the ball over a couple of times which led to points off turnovers (one being a pick six). The Blue Devils did score with less than a minute left to cut into the deficit (down 42-35) but failed to recover the onside.

The second round of Class C1 will be played on Friday, November 5.
