Four different players scored rushing touchdowns as the Centennial High School football team found its offense once again Friday in a non-region game against visiting Dickson County.
The home-standing Cougars scored 27 unanswered to claim a 41-7 win in Franklin.
Kofi Boggs, Cannon Plowman, Zavion Haddox and Kani Johnson all scored rushing TDs for Centennial, while Tanner Lee paced the ground game with 124 yards rushing on 16 carries.
Boggs struck first on a 50-yard run less than two minutes into the game, and after Dickson County answered with a Colby Lamberth 40-yard strike to Jessie Stewart, it was all Centennial the rest of the way.
Plowman scored from six yards out to end the first quarter and Sam Cochran followed in the second with a 39-yard field goal. Plowman added a 8-yard touchdown pass to Devon Reed inside the final 30 seconds of the first half for a comfortable 24-7 edge.
Plowman closed with 64 yards passing and 41 yards rushing with the two TDs. Cochran added a 34-yard field goal as well.
Lamberth led Dickson County by going 15-of-29 for 161 yards and the touchdown.
