FAIRFIELD COUNTY — The Griffins have landed in Fairfield Central – though that’s not necessarily a good thing.

Fairfield Central started off soaring as planned but came undone in the second half against Brookland-Cayce Friday night, falling 36-24.

Fairfield Central pushed the BC defense around for much of the first half, piling up 115 rushing yards while scoring on three of their first five possessions.

Despite their early touchdowns, the Griffins were never able to put anything together on special teams, missing on all four of their extra point attempts.

Despite a grand showing from Griffin junior running back Jerrell Suber-Oneal, who accounted for 90 of the Griffins 187 rushing yards on 15 carries, the Fairfield Central offense just couldn’t keep the momentum going after a late touchdown by the Bearcats near the end of the second quarter.

While BC had a better performance in the second half, they were plagued with turnovers and penalties in the first half with several fumbled snaps and, on their third drive, piling up three consecutive false start penalties backing them up to their own 9 yard line.

The second half looked like a completely different ball game with BC breaking off big plays on each of their drives.

It was AJ Brown who finally took the last breath out of the Griffins when he broke off a 37-yard run on third down with around two minutes remaining in the game. That run salvaged a drive that ended in the touchdown that put the game out of reach.

The Griffins will be back in action at home next week, facing rival Chester High school. Chester is 1-0, coming off a 45-14 win against Lewisville High School.

Fairfield Central: 24 points, 24 first downs, 42 rush – 187 yards, 6-11-1 (comp-att-int) for 68 yards.

Brookland-Cayce: 36 points, 24 first downs, 43 rush – 234 yards, 6-12-0 for 86 yards.

FCHS QB McManus: 6-11-1 68, 12 rush – 21 yards

FCHS RB Bell: 10 rush – 48 yards

FCHS RB Suber-Oneal: 15 rush – 90 yards
