Centralia took a 12-6 lead in the second quarter on Friday in a Class 1 District 4 semifinal game in Moberly after Jesse Caballero ran for a 75-yard touchdown, but Moberly ate much more yardage on the ground, especially with Ka'Von Tiger, to hand Centralia a 41-28 season-ending loss. The Spartan running back finished with 299 yards on 14 carries, scoring four rushing touchdowns and one receiving touchdown. Class 3 No. 9 Moberly (9-2) scored 28 unanswered points as Centralia senior quarterback Cullen Bennett made some plays for three touchdowns -- two passing and one rushing. The Panthers end the season with a 9-2 record and with a No. 5 ranking they earned before the postseason began.
