On Saturday, May 8, the Centennial boys’ baseball team opened their season with a 5-4 come-from-behind win against Atholton. The comeback came at the bottom of the seventh after back to back hits from senior Dylan Watson and freshman Cade Ahearn. 

Ahearn pitched four innings, giving up four runs on a base clearing triple and an RBI single. The Eagles would eventually score one run in the fourth inning. 

Senior pitcher Conarie Steinbach then came in to pitch and threw three shutout innings. In the fifth inning, the Eagles scored two runs on a single from sophomore Qwynn Ahearn, which made the score 4-3 in Atholton’s favor. 

In the seventh inning, the Eagles hit two singles in a row, along with an intentional walk to load the bases. A sac fly from Watson tied the game at four. 

Another intentional walk loaded the bases again, and Ahearn hit another sac fly to win the game for the Eagles. 

Carter Watson, a sophomore outfielder, stated, “I think the team fought hard. Cade pitched well, then Conarie came in and shut it down. We had some clutch hits and good base running and it helped us win this game.”
