On Monday, February 26, Centennials Boys’ Varsity basketball team played Wilde Lake High School in their last regular season game of the 2018-19 season.

To start off the game, the Eagles took an 8-point lead in the first quarter.

While the Wildcats were able to even that scoreline, Centennial managed to gain back a 2-point lead, ending the first quarter at 10-8.

The Eagles played a very defensively strong game in the second quarter, only conceding 5 points.

The score at halftime was 20-13.

After halftime, the Eagles returned to the court with a more offensive mindset, scoring 17 points in just the third quarter. To top off Centennial’s incredible performance, 4 of their players scored double-digits throughout the game.

These four players were Joey Sedlacko (10), Stafford Smith (10), Michael Kefyalew (13), and Ryan Hollwedel (12).

The final score was 60-46.

“It was a really good team effort,” Sedlacko, junior forward, commented.

The win against Wilde Lake, who is ranked second in county, will give the boys good momentum going into playoffs.

Their first playoff game will be on Monday, March 4, against Reservoir High School.
