Football: Central 28, Wildwood 17

For the first time since October 2010, Central players celebrated victory on the gridiron with Friday night's 28-17 win at Wildwood.

With Central down 10-6, Cole Teater came in for a second straight week to relieve starting quarterback Cody Brooks when a hard hit sent the sophomore to the hospital. Teater threw an interception that was brought back for a score and a 17-6 Wildwood lead.

But in the fourth quarter Bears tailback James Reynolds had a short touchdown run, and after a three-and-out, another drive was finished off by Justin Battle's 35-yard sweep for a touchdown gave Central the lead for good at 20-17.

"The kids never quit," Bears coach Mike Einspahr said. "We needed to find more ways to put drives together if we were going to win, and we finally did that."

    UPDATE, 4:27: In making the deal, the Rays add an elite-level defender to an infield that could use the help.
