Central traveled to Manual Stadium for the season opener against the Crimsons and fell 7-0 in a battle of the defenses.
Dayshawn Mucker had a game on the ground for the Jackets piling up 134 yards on 30 carries. The Jackets put together several good drives but a couple of turnovers and two fake punts that didn’t convert kept the Jackets off the scoreboard.
Aiden Moore and Ben Bush led the Darkside defense with 15 combined tackles.
The Jackets will look to get back on track next week when they host Iroquois at 6:00 in the BSN Bowl at Central Stadium.
The games start next weekend at Noon with Doss v. PRP and Paducah Tilghman v. Holy Cross at 3.
