Getting off to a slow start, and not being able to make up enough ground, the Centralia football team dropped its season opener to Elma, 20-7, Friday night.

Jojo Simpson scored the lone touchdown of the night for the Tigers (0-1) on a 6-yard scamper, but after falling into a 12-0 hole, the Tigers couldn't dig themselves out Friday.

Gabe Seymour racked up 79 rushing yards on 16 carries, but the Tigers struggled to get their passing game going, and finished with 136 total yards.

Centralia will look to rebound next week against Battle Ground in its home opener.
