Bowling Green suffered a 39-13 loss to Centreville Academy in a District 5AAA road game that was held Friday.

“We didn’t play well at all,” Bowling Green coach David Currier said. “We were not ready to play and we got physically whipped.”

The key stat in the game was that Centreville ran for 433 yards.

“They’re a good team and they’ll probably win the district. I’m not upset about getting beat, I’m just upset about the way we played,” Currier said.

Centreville was 3-of-4 passing for 31 yards.

Bowling Green’s Cameron Bell ran for 57 yards and threw for 93 yards. His passing touchdown was to Cameron Cowart.

Cowart finished with three catches for 62 yards and a touchdown to go with 54 yards on the ground. He also returned a punt for a touchdown.

Bowling Green forced Centreville to fumble five times and they recovered three. Nathan Case and Demarcus Fland combined for two of the recoveries.

Bowling Green fumbled four times and lost two.

The Bucs trailed just 13-7 with two minutes left in the first half, but Centreville extended the lead to 21-7 halftime.

The Buccaneers fell to 2-3 overall and 1-1 in district. They will be back in action Friday when they travel to face Ben’s Ford. The Eagles, who are 1-5, lost to Copiah Academy, 52-0, Friday night.
