Central is at home against Bethel of Minnesota in the quarterfinal round of the division three playoffs. These teams have played in recent years. Central coach Jeff McMartin says the seniors will have played them twice and know they have a good defense and a good running attack. They also beat St. Johns this year and are the champions of their league.
The key will be slowing down a Bethel ground game that attacks in a number of different ways. McMartin says they do a lot of shotgun with a lot of different formations that include a lot of options with the quarterback and running back. He says they will try to run it right at you, but can take it outside if they have to.
