Mingo Central's title defense came to an end with a thud Saturday afternoon as the Miners lost to Fairmont Senior 35-6 at Buck Harless Stadium. The Polar Bears led 7-0 at halftime but pulled away scoring 28 points within 4:40 at the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth quarter. Fairmont Senior's defense got it done against a Miners offense that hadn't been held under 50 points since week two of the regular season. Prior to their semifinal loss to the Polar Bears, Mingo Central hadn't scored less than 36 points in a game this season. The Polar Bears advance to the Class AA Championship Friday night against Bluefield.
