On Tuesday, October 20, the Centennial Girls’ Soccer team took on Glenelg in the 2015 Senior Night game. The seniors honored were Reese Western, Mackenzie Brandon, Rachel Braun, Megan Oliver, Izzie Chausse, Jesse Dunagan, and Lynsey Reckard.

Centennial dominated the time of possession in the first half, getting multiple scoring chances in the first 15 minutes. Junior Jasmine McCree converted an opportunity 13 minutes into the game to put the Eagles ahead.

Continuing the offensive momentum, senior Reese Western scored on a very skillful shot less than 10 minutes after the first goal. Four minutes later, Western scored off a penalty kick to put the lead at 3-0 at halftime.

A big reason for the first half dominance was the intensity of the defense and midfield. Seniors Megan Oliver and Jesse Dunagan, along with junior Cristina Narron played airtight defense, stopping any Genelg attack quickly and efficiently.

Senior Allie Durkee and sophomore Kirsten Wikner created multiple scoring chances in the middle of the field and set up their teammates nicely.

Seven minutes into the second half, Western completed the hat trick, extending the lead to 4-1. Glenelg would put one shot in the back of the net, but that was all they would get, as Centennial won 4-1.

Centennial’s next game is at Reservoir on October 22.

On Thursday, October 1, Centennial Girls’ Soccer took the field in the rain against Marriotts Ridge. In need of a win, Centennial came to play, earning a 4-1 win over the Mustangs.

The first goal for the Eagles came from freshman Mckenna Griffin less than five minutes into the game. Griffin, along with seniors Reese Western and Jesse Dunagan, and juniors Jasimine McCree and Sandy Eichhorn, helped the Eagles dominate the time of possession battle in the early parts of the first half.

The defense held off the Mustang’s offense for most of the half. Seniors Megan Oliver and Lynsey Reckard, along with junior Cristina Narron locked down the opposing offense.

The Mustangs put a long range shot into the back of the net with under five minutes left in the half, but Griffin would answer with her second goal of the game off of an assist from Western three minutes later, taking a 2-1 lead into halftime.

That lead turned into 3-1 when a shot from sophomore Kelli Dunagan bounced off a Mustang defender and into the goal less than five minutes into the second half.
