In a huge upset, Centennial’s boys’ basketball team beat number one Oakland Mills on Friday, Feb. 21.
Oakland Mills went into the game expecting to dominate, and they did for the first three quarters. However, Centennial managed to close the gap, and with less than a second left, Chad Strothers hit a three, sending the game into overtime.
The Eagles fought with renewed energy, and turned their previous ten-point deficit into a nine-point lead.
The last game of the season ended with a 86-75 victory for Centennial over the number one team.
The win gained them a bye for the first round of playoffs, and on Monday, March 3, they will play the winner of the Mount Hebron/Digital Harbor match up.
The girls’ basketball team also had success against Oakland Mills. They, too, were down at the half to the Scorpions, but pushed ahead for a win.
Three players put up double digits: Anna Mitchell with 13, Brittany Anderson with 12, and Kimmy Eads with 11 points.
The Lady Eagles will start the playoffs with a home game against the Long Reach Lightning on Friday, Feb. 28.
