The loss is likely a mortal blow to any playoff hopes for Warren Central (1-5, 0-2 Region 2-6A), which has dropped its last three games.

Will Stegall got the Vikings on the board in the first quarter with a 32-yard field goal, the only time in three attempts inside the Greenville 30-yard line that the Viking offense came away with points.

The Vikings had a shot early in the third quarter. Louis Carson came up with a leaping interception to put WC in position in Greenville territory. But Shon Jackson fumbled a few plays later to end the threat.

Warren Central had one last gasp on the Greenville 22-yard line, but quarterback Beau Wallace was sacked as time expired to end the threat.

The road doesn’t get any easier for the Vikings, as they host undefeated region foe Madison Central next week.
