On Friday, April 26, the Centennial Varsity Boys’ Lacrosse team defeated their rival Mount Hebron High School 6-5 in overtime.

The game-winning goal came from senior midfielder Andrew Kauffman who scored with 3:40 left in overtime. Junior attackman Connor Carpenter assisted Kauffman, who was cutting down the middle for the goal which would secure the Eagles the victory.

Early in the first quarter, the Eagles found themselves down 2-0, but were able to regain their momentum on defense to allow no more goals in the second half, leading at halftime 3-2.

It was a back-and-forth game in the second half. Late in the fourth quarter, junior midfielder Ty Sams scored an unassisted goal to tie the game 5-5.

In overtime, sophomore midfielder Ryan Firebaugh won the opening faceoff which gave the Eagles the first opportunity to score which the Eagles converted on.
