Girls Varsity Soccer Defeated By Atholton

Words: Delanie Tucker

On October 18, Centennial’s Girls Varsity Soccer team hosted Atholton High School for our senior night game.

Seven seniors were honored last night: Ashley Molz, Ashley Deng, Courtney McVicker, McKenna Griffin, Casey Clark, Peyton Wilkerson and Fjordia Akhtalr.

All seven girls were starters for the game.

Sadly, the final score was 2-1, with Atholton taking the win.

The game was very aggressive, which resulted in both teams earning several fouls.

Centennial’s goal was scored by Molz off of a free kick in the second half.

A win last night would have secured the Eagles a second seed spot in playoffs. Because of the loss, they will have to play this coming week and will be forced to play Reservoir High School, the top team, in their first playoff game.

Despite the loss, the girls are looking forward to playoffs, and will learn from their mistakes made in earlier games.

Words: Zach Grable

On Monday, November 7, the Centennial Girls’ Varsity Soccer team beat the Westminster Owls for the 3A Regional Finals.

Centennial started off the half with a huge desire to crush the Owls. They quickly put three goals in the net. Junior Kelli Dunagan passed the ball to senior Jasmine McCree for the first goal of the game that gave the Eagles a boost of morale. Shortly after, sophomore Mckenna Griffin received a ball from McCree and flew by multiple defenders to give Centennial a 2-0 lead. However, the Eagles were not done yet. They kept up their intensity and scored yet another goal by McCree. Although no goals were scored for the rest of the half, the Eagles did not let up their offensive attacks.

In the second half, the Eagles suffered a devestating injury. McCree injured her hamstring, and Coach Baxter put in freshman Sarah Sophchick. Sopchick had a stellar game, and scored a unassisted goal to give the Eagles their fourth and final goal.

Centennial will move onto the State Semi-Finals on Saturday, November 12, against Urbana High School.

On Friday, September 16, 2016, the Girls’ Varsity Soccer team lost their first game of the season, 1-0, to the Howard Lions.

The beginning of the first half was dominated by the Centennial offense. With a merciless defensive side stonewalling Howard’s goal attempts left and right. Centennial’s strong offense was led by juniors Kelli Dunagan, Kirsten Wikner, senior Jasmine McCree as well as help from sophomores Ashley Molz and Mckenna Griffin.

By the half, the Centennial defense led by junior Claudia Piltcher had fought off Howard’s many attempts to score, and went into halftime tied at 0-0.

The Eagles came out strong in the second half, determined and unforgiving on the Lion’s defense. Despite Centennial’s energy, Howard was able to score off a corner kick at the beginning of the second half, making the score 1-0.

While Centennial dominated for the majority of the game, and put 28 shots on goal, they were unable to make it onto the scoreboard.

The Eagles will face off against River Hill High School on Tuesday, September 20.
