GLADEVILLE — The Wilson Central Wildcats were dominated by the Siegel Stars on homecoming Friday night.
Siegel tailback Gerald Howse scored three times and rushed for 142 yards on 23 carries as the Stars won 45-0.
In the first quarter, Siegel scored twice but both plays were called back by holding penalties.
"(Gerald) Howse was a man among boys tonight. He really was in his element," Wildcat coach Traye Aric said after Central slipped to 0-4.
Siegel [2-2] scored 17 points in the second quarter to take a 17-0 halftime lead.
Two scores were by Howse, the first a 3-yard run and the second a 4-yarder.
Siegel attempted an onside kick before halftime and was successful. The Stars drove in position and got a 35-yard field goal from Jesse Chambers for the intermission margin.
Howse had 100 yards at intermission on 17 carries and the two scores.
He added one more in the third quarter on a 1-yard run to make the score 24-0.
The deepest the Wildcats had the ball was on the Siegel 32-yard line after a fumbled punt.
The drive however fizzled out at the 29 as Siegel took over on downs.
Siegel closed the scoring in the fourth quarter as Daniel Francescon intercepted  a pass. Francescon took the ball in for the score and it was 38-0.
Twenty seconds later, a bad snap rolled near the end zone and Siegel recovered it for the final score.
"We haven't had everyone practice for three weeks now," Aric said after the game. "We just have to come out Monday and go back to work."
Wilson Central will travel to Gallatin next Friday to take on the Green Wave in District 9-AAA.
