On Friday, September 27, the Centennial football team took the field against the River Hill Hawks for River Hill’s homecoming game.
The Hawks quickly took control of the game after blocking the Eagle’s first punt after a three and out on their first drive. The Hawks scored a little under two minutes later.
The Hawks would score two more times in the first quarter, including an interception returned for a touchdown. The Eagles would not go away without a fight though, a long run by senior Logan Tignall at the end of the quarter set up the Eagles only touchdown of the game, a 10 yard pass from Tyler Morris to Damon Reaves.
The Eagles lost any momentum they had when River Hill took the returning kickoff all the way for a touchdown. Throughout the rest of the game, the Hawks would score again on the ground, and intercepted another pass for a touchdown.
The Eagles played hard the whole game but just couldn’t keep up with River Hill, losing the game 42-7. The Eagles, now 3-1, get back at it soon though, with back to back home games against Long Reach, and Atholton for Centennial’s homecoming game.
