“We played pretty decently and had a fair amount more possession. We just had three critical defensive errors that they capitalized on,” Warren Central coach Jeremy Lawrence said.

In the boys’ game, Richland scored twice in each half and pulled away in the second to beat Warren Central 4-1.

Laney Lewis had Warren Central’s only goal. The Vikings were missing several starters who were out with the flu.
