On Monday, October 30, the Centennial Eagles field hockey players wrapped up their season and play-offs run with the 4-1 defeat against their rivals, the Mt. Hebron Vikings. For the seniors, this might be the last time they step out on the field as an Eagle, so they came ready for a fight. The rest of the team knew they had to play their hardest if they wanted to continue their journey with their senior teammates. The Eagles won possession of the ball at the start of the game, and within only a couple minutes, senior Lauren Muma scored the first goal for the Eagles with an assist coming from senior Camden Blevins. According to Muma, “I am sad that [the season] is over, but it was such a fun season and being able to score with Camden was amazing.” The Vikings were able to score a goal, tying up the game.
Both teams defended well, and the half ended with the score tied of one to one. Once the teams regrouped after halftime, both teams went in with new energy, and within the first 5 minutes of the second half, Hebron had scored once again, taking the lead 2-1. The Eagles offense and defense played well throughout the game, but unfortunately, the Vikings scored two more times within 10 minutes, and the final score was 4-1. The 2017-2018 season was an amazing one for the Centennial Eagles, going to the third round of play-offs, and ending the season with an great game.
