Central’s defense held firm during Friday’s Night’s game against Crystal River

At the beginning of the season, Coach Walden’s goal for the team was to put winning numbers on the scoreboard, and he has accomplished that.

“We wanted to get the program on track, get a few wins and build a culture and discipline,” Walden said.

During Friday night’s game against Crystal River (Oct. 11), the Bears prevented the Pirates from putting any more points on the board in the fourth quarter.

“When it rains, it pours, when it pours, you score,” Fox Chapel’s eighth-grader Mike Lee said. 

Even though the Tigers never scored a touchdown, they kept the Eagles from crossing over into their endzone beyond half-time, ending the game at 14-0 on Oct. 8, 2019.

“I was proud of Fox Chapel because, in the past, we would score forty-some points,” coach Genard Hudson said. “They showed a lot of improvement and gave us a challenge.”
