It took Class C-2, No. 1 Centennial two days to put away a Shelby-Rising City team that refused to stop fighting.
The Broncos (7-0) scored the game's only touchdown with 8:38 remaining in the first quarter Friday night on a 20-yard touchdown run by Gavin Avery, who led Centennial with 126 rushing yards on 30 carries.
Then the inclement weather hit and play was suspended with 3:21 remaining in the second quarter.
The teams resumed play Saturday morning, but the Huskies (2-5) never got their offense started in the 7-0 road loss.
Shelby-Rising City ran 53 plays for 136 yards (2.6 per play) and committed four turnovers.
Quarterback Mason Schleis completed 11 of 27 passes for 114 yards, finding Max Hoatson six times for a team-best 61 yards, but also tossed three interceptions.
The Huskies managed just 22 rushing yards on 25 attempts as the defense kept them in the game.
Centennial didn't fare much better on offense with 191 total yards on 55 plays (3.5 per play) and only three pass completions.
The teams combined to go 7 for 26 on third-down conversions and 0 for 4 on fourth down.
Antonio Lopez led the Shelby-Rising City defense with eight tackles, including two for loss, and Grant Lindsley had seven stops with one coming behind the line.
The Huskies host Centura on Friday. The Centurions (2-5) lost to St. Paul (4-3) on Oct. 6.
