This past Friday, August 31st, 2012, the Centennial Eagles Varsity Football team played their first season game against Oakland Mills at 7pm. It was an exciting game for fans as the Eagles fought there way to a 20-6 win. Michael Price, Quinn Western and Tyler Morris all scored for the Eagles while Nick Cooper made two extra points.
“The game showed how aggressive we play and fast we are,” said Head Varsity Coach Todd Kriner. “They will be some of our biggest strengths on the field this season.” The win against Oakland Mills was the first home win for Kriner since he took the coaching position in 2011. “The game was exciting for the players, coaches, and the fans. It’s nice to start [the season] with a win.”
Kriner expects this team to do well this season due to the increased strength of the players and players with more experience.
This week the Eagles will play at Wilde Lake against the Wildecats at 7pm. “Our goal is to play hard and not shy away from anything” Kriner added.
