Madison Central's offensive struggles continued on Friday in Lexington.

The Indians (1-5, 0-3 district) did not have a first down and suffered a 21-0 setback to district rival Bryan Station (6-1, 3-0).

The game was called at halftime because of lightning.

The Indians have lost five-straight games since a season-opening win over Lafayette. Central has scored just 74 points this season.

The Defenders have won six-straight games.

Central forced a pair of turnovers, but simply could not move the ball. The Indians had nine total yards of offense on 15 plays.

The Indians had five possessions, all of which ended with a punt from their own territory.

Joseph Bond had a 4-yard touchdown run with 5:13 left in the first quarter as Station took a 7-0 lead. Less than four minutes later, Mikaleb Coffey hooked up with Jahden Morton on a 48-yard touchdown pass.

The game was halted for more than hour with the Defenders up 13-0 late in the second quarter.

After play resumed, Coffey scored on a 1-yard run.

The teams finished the half, then the game was ended.

Station finished with 190 yards of total offense and 11 first downs.

The Indians were 0-of-5 on third down.

Treyvion Parks and Jayden West had interceptions for Central.

Coffey was 8-of-14 for 136 yards and Bond had 30 yards rushing.

Central quarterback Nate Storie was 3-of-5 for 11 yards and also had a team-best nine yards rushing.

Zach Holbrook had two catches for nine yards.

Station and Central are set to meet again in three weeks in the opening round of the Class 3A Playoffs. The Defenders will be the No. 1 seed, while the Indians will be the No. 4 seed.

Central is set to return to action Friday at home against Southwestern.
