TOLEDO -- Cumberland High School celebrated Senior Night with a 14-6 hard-fought win over Flora Friday evening.

The Pirates are now 6-2 and have guaranteed themselves a spot in the playoffs.

"Flora is a hard-hitting squad who is better than their 1-6 record shows. We had a few breakdowns defensively but found the heart to hang on and pull out the win," said assistant coach Bill Ault.

The Pirates took an 8-0 first quarter lead. Jon Duniphan ran for a yard with 6:55 showing. Duniphan also ran the two point conversion. The Pirates held that 8-0 lead through halftime.

In the third quarter, Cumberland pushed its lead to 14-0 when Duniphan again scored, this one on a six yard run. Flora finally hit the scoreboard when Ethan Lieb connected with Cory Moore on a 23-yard pass play.

Monte Wolke hit two of three passes for 19 yards for Cumberland. Kole Butler caught both passes. Duniphan had 28 carries for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Holden Elwood had 13 carries for 33 yards while Nathan Day had two carires for 32 yards.
