PALMYRA, Mo. (WGEM) -- A strong second half lifted Palmyra to a season opening win at Macon last Friday.

Now the Panthers face Clarence Cannon Conference preseason and perennial favorite Centralia this Friday night.

Last season's showdown turned into a double-overtime thriller.

Palmyra seeks to avenge that loss but head coach Kevin Miles knows it won't be easy.

"If you can play well against Centralia then you know you've got a pretty good football team. I think that's just what it boils down to and we know we've got to come in (Friday) and be ready," Miles said. 

It may be early but CCC title implications are without question at stake.

"In the grand scheme of things it's week two and they're (in) Class 3," Miles said of Centralia. 

"As much as we want to have a chance at a conference championship we're looking at week nine and week 10, and having things ready by then."

Game time is set for 7 p.m.
