Flying high: Central slips past Strasburg

STRASBURG -- Central extended its early season winning streak to three Tuesday night by defeating Shenandoah County rival Strasburg 45-33, but it wasn't pretty at times as the teams' defenses dominated play. "We're very happy with the way we played on defense," Central coach Stephanie Mathews said. "On offense, I thought that we were impatient. We need to learn to be more patient and wait for a good shot." comments

Ayers captures second state title

THE PLAINS -- Katlyn Ayers doesn't like it when an opponent is close behind. For some runners, having somebody on their heels might serve as motivation to keep pushing harder and harder, but that doesn't work for Ayers. If it were up to the Strasburg junior, her closest opponent would be plenty of distance away. So when George Mason's Julia Estrada started to close in on Ayers, who held the lead in the Group A state cross country championships with less than 100 yards to go, Ayers knew she couldn't let her cushion slip away. comments

Fickle Falcons flounder early against Eagles

ELKTON -- Momentum can be a fickle thing in volleyball. Central found that out the hard way Monday night.

Falcons topple Bison

WOODSTOCK -- One year ago, Central suffered a heartbreaking loss at Buffalo Gap, allowing 28 points while managing just 6. The loss was devastating to the Falcons' playoff hopes at the time, culminating with the defeat that kept Central sitting at home during the postseason. It was the kind of blowout that's not easy to forget, the one that sticks with a team for 12 months until they have a chance at redemption. On Friday night, the Falcons got their shot at redemption and behind quarterback Matt Sherfey and wide receiver Sean Semones, they didn't miss. Sherfey threw for 279 yards, 176 to Semones, as Central celebrated homecoming night with a 35-7 win over Buffalo Gap. comments

Flying High: Falcons topple Generals

QUICKSBURG -- When talking about Central's offensive attack, Matt Sherfey's arm seems to get all the credit. Not that it shouldn't, mind you. With 168 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 24-8 win over Stonewall Jackson, the Falcons senior certainly showed why his throwing skills steal the headlines. comments
