Some bus rides to and from road games have been kinder to Center Grove football teams than others during Eric Moore’s 14 seasons as head coach.
Alone at the bottom of the list is Warren Central, a destination where the Trojans have come up short all eight times they’ve played there since 1999. Add a pre-Moore setback at Warren Central in 1997, and Center Grove is 0-9 at the eastside stadium since formation of the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference.
“It seems whenever we go there things happen in the first quarter that dictate the game. For some reason we’ve never won over there,” said Moore, whose current squad attempts to reverse the unflattering history in this evening’s season-opener on the Warriors’ home turf.
