MT. VERNON —
Centralia's actually shown some serious offensive capabilites, hanging 33 on Althoff in the narrow loss. So far, the Orphans have been surprisingly competitive. Mt. Vernon defeated them last year, but 2010 might see a swing in the rivalry.
In the Black Diamond Conference, Hamilton County fell to 2-3 after surrendering a 21-30 loss to Elverado. It was Elverado's first win of the season.
Sesser-Valier, on the other hand, remains in contention in a three-way tie for second place with Chester and Eldorado at 4-1. Johnston City is in the sole lead of the Black Diamond with a perfect 5-0 record.
