BROOKSVILLE — Mitchell scored steadily Friday night, leaving Central to ponder whether last week’s solid effort was a fluke.

The Bears were shut out for fourth time in their 61-0 loss at home to the Mustangs, unable to stop their ground attack.

Mitchell (4-3) spread the ball around with Freddie Jones, Mordell Holley, Christian Trinidad and Dan Barber finding gaps in the Central front. The lead was 35-0 at the half, and the running clock didn’t slow the potency of the offense.

Even with a homecoming crowd to bolster them, the Bears (0-7) continued to struggle on both sides of the ball, dropping their ninth consecutive game dating to last season.

The Mustang defense seemed to get back on track after a slow effort last week against Land O’Lakes in which the team allowed 48 points at home. This is the program’s second shutout of the season after blanking Ridgewood in Week 3.
