Central got the ball to start the game and put together a nice scoring drive. Bryce Skaggs began the series with a 14-yard run, before Conner Ratliff and Gunner Slone combined for 13 more yards and a first down.
Quarterback Bryce Workman then hit receiver Geordon Blanton with a pass that covered 28 yards, before Ratliff ran for six more and later capped the seven-play drive with a three-yard touchdown run.
Tyler Pack kicked the extra point to give the Eagles the early 7-0 lead with 9:32 left on the first-quarter play clock.
Greenup County answered with a four-play, 80-yard drive that Caden Warnock ended with a 49-yard touchdown scamper to cut the lead to 7-6, which gave the Musketeer faithful hope that they might be able to move the football on the Eagle defense.
