Beacats nip Tribe in thriller

MUNCIE, Ind. — Muncie Central hosted the Anderson on Friday for Senior Night and came away with a hard-fought 22-21 win.

Offense was at a premium early as both teams struggled to get going. The Bearcats forced a three-and-out by the Indians, but Jaylen White fumbled on second down, and the Indians recovered.

Jerian Beard scored on a 21-yard run for a 6-0 Anderson lead early in the first quarter.

Anderson scored its second touchdown midway through the second quarter as quarterback Gaven Owens hooked up with Robby Peal for a 43-yard scoring pass. The Indians went for it on fourth-and-2 at their own 29-yard line during the scoring drive.

Beard slipped through the line and burst out for a 37-yard run into Bearcat territory, avoiding several tackles on the way. A penalty during the run moved the ball back to the Bearcats’ 45 but was still enough for a first down for Anderson.

Muncie Central finally got its offense going and scored on a 20-yard Timmric Barrett run. Joe Williams ran for the 2-point conversion to bring Muncie Central to within 12-8.

The Bearcats forced Anderson into a three-and-out late in the quarter.

Quarterback Austin Murphy hit Barrett on a 66-yard touchdown pass to give Muncie Central its first lead. Williams again went up the middle for 2 to make it 16-12 late in the quarter.

“We got up on them (Muncie Central) then we let them back in the game,” Anderson coach Randy Albano said. “They got that long touchdown at the end of the half, and I was a bit worried. It burst our bubble a little bit, but our kids responded.”

The Indians stopped Muncie Central on the first possession of the second half but were pinned inside their own 20-yard line. On fourth down, punter Alonzo West caught the Bearcats napping. West lined up to punt but pulled the ball down and ran for a first down.
