BROOKSVILLE — A rough night at Central just kept getting worse Friday night.

The Bears welcomed in undefeated state power South Sumter and were dominated 69-0 on their home field.

South Sumter returner J.T. Taylor (five carries, 101 yards, three touchdowns) took the opening kickoff 85 yards for a touchdown, and the Raiders (5-0) never looked back.

A Cody Brooks interception turned into an 11-yard run to pay dirt by Anderson Faulk, before a Central 37-yard field-goal attempt was blocked and returned 80 yards by Matt Simmons for another touchdown. It was 21-0 at the end of the first quarter as the Bears (0-5) were unable to hang on to the ball.

Brooks, fighting off an illness, continued to play, but was visibly struggling. Before it was over, the Raiders had scored 10 touchdowns, and to make matters worse for Central, the team played the last quarter and a half without the North Suncoast’s leading rusher. Robbie Bradley (19 carries, 89 yards) was forced to leave with a hand injury.
