The Monroe Central Seminoles faced Ohio Valley juggernaut Shadyside on the road on Sept. 5. Shadyside came into the game with a 24-game regular season winning streak and left with a 25-game streak after shutting down the Seminoles 21-0.

Shadyside jumped out to an early 7-0 lead in the first quarter. It soon looked like the Seminoles may tie after a long run by Levi Brown took the ball down to the one-yard line. However, the Seminoles were stuffed four times and turned the ball over on downs. Shadyside scored again in the second quarter for a 14-0 lead. A fourth-quarter touchdown led to the final score of 21-0.

The story of the game was the Seminoles being frustrated by a stymieing Shadyside defense. Running back Levi Brown had the most success with 83 yards on 13 carries. However, 62 of those yards came on one play. Chad Alleman added 18 yards on four carries, while Patrick Craig carried the ball twice for eight yards. Quarterback Jarett Hooper completed only one of 14 pass attempts for seven yards and threw two interceptions. Zach Jorris had one reception for seven yards.

In volleyball action, the Lady Seminoles faced strong in-county rival River at home on Sept. 2. The Lady Seminoles won two tight sets to begin the match by a score of 25-23 and 25-22. Needing only one set to win, the Lady Seminoles couldn’t hold off the charging Lady Pilots as they fell in the remaining sets 19-25, 18-25 and 13-15.
