persistent heavy rain and a very sloppy field. Centreville had

167 total yards while WCCA had only 102 total yards.

The Rams could not stop Centreville’s Matthew Tolbert, who

had 22 carries for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

Rob Robertson led the Centreville defense with 11 tackles.

Rich Newman and Jamie Norsworthy had nine tackles each. Tolbert

and Jarrod Webb had eight tackles each.

Centreville improved to 5-3 overall and will play at Amite

School Center in Liberty next Friday. WCCA dropped to 1-7 overall.
