On Tuesday, November 1, the Centennial Girls’ Varsity soccer team beat the Reservoir Gators 3-2, in the second round of playoffs.

The playoff game was a revenge match for the Eagles as Reservoir handed them a loss less than two weeks ago.

The game started with the Eagles trailing Reservoir 1-0. One of Centennial’s starting wings, sophomore Mckenna Griffin, helped the team quickly bounce back. Griffin got on the end of a cross sent into the box and headed it in for a goal.

The Gators scored yet another goal to put them in the lead. This time, Centennial followed up with two goals, both by junior Kelli Dunagan.

Centennial was able to keep their lead despite the offensive pressure Reservoir created.

The Eagles play at Atholton High School on Thursday, November 4, in the third round of playoffs.

Words and Photos: Jeremy Hall

Centennial junior, Jessica Hoang, loves art because it is a phenomenal stress reliever and is a valuable exercise which allows her to express her creativity. Hoang is currently enrolled in Art III AP. Hoang claims that art is very important to her because it allows her to get through a stressful day.

Hoang has been creating art since she was young and plans to continue her practice throughout her life. Hoang says that art class is the only class that she looks forward to everyday. This is only Hoang’s second oil painting, however, she believes she has improved since her initial project.

This particular self portrait was challenging for the artist because she had to start over multiple times with the help of Ms. Collins in order to capture the style that she desired to create. Hoang says she is very proud of this piece because she was able to create a successful piece. Through trial and error, Hoang created a piece that she was fully satisfied with.
