The Central Crossing football team's season ended Nov. 1 with its second-lowest offensive output of the season.
The Comets were held to 92 total yards, all but eight of which came in the air, in a 35-0 loss at Marysville to finish 3-7 overall and 1-4 in the OCC-Central Division.
Wide receiver Cole Wright caught two passes for 41 yards and wide receiver Anthony Lowe completed one of two passes for 46 yards. Quarterback Drew DeYarmon was 3-for-8 passing for 38 yards and was sacked three times.
Lowe's pass came on second-and-15 at the Comets' 20 early in the second quarter and put Central Crossing at Marysville's 34, but the possession ended in a missed field goal.
The Comets, who were playing without usual starting quarterback Logan Green, among others, because of injuries, amassed 83 yards in a season-opening 34-3 loss at Dublin Jerome on Aug. 30.
"That is a good physical team that was highly motivated for that game," coach Trevor White said of Marysville. "We were a little shorthanded because of injuries and we didn't execute the way we needed to."
Chase Kilgore rushed for 127 yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries to pace the Monarchs, who improved to 6-4 overall and finished 2-3 in the OCC-Central, and clinched the eighth and final seed in the Division I, Region 2 playoffs. Marysville, which will visit top-seeded Springfield for a first-round game Friday, Nov. 8, is in the postseason for the first time since 2013.
A 29-yard touchdown run from Gabe Powers and Kilgore's first score, from 1 yard, gave Marysville a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.
Kilgore scored again from a yard out with 2 minutes, 6 seconds left in the first half to make it 21-0, and from 4 yards in the third quarter. Jayden Simmons added a 1-yard touchdown run less than two minutes into the fourth.
"It was a frustrating night," White said. "We had some guys who played good games. Freddy Burchett, Jayden Farrell and Lance Blackwell had great games on the offensive line. We just didn't put enough good things together."
