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.

Centennial’s New Turf

Words: Paul Drutch and Michael Merkey

Centennial’s stadium grass field has now been upgraded. On May of 2015, the construction of the new turf field began.

In a countywide decision in 2011, Howard County Recreation and Parks determined that all public schools should receive a turf field by 2016. Over the past four years, three schools a year have received turf, but this past summer just Mt. Hebron and Centennial were able to install the new field. As of right now, River Hill is the only school yet to replace their grass field.

The summer-long operation had multiple steps including, letting the field die out after spring season, tearing up the field, and then planting artificial grass and spreading turf pellets. Centennial also installed two new, posts functioning as both soccer goals and football field goals.

After the construction was complete, all athletes were allowed to start activities on the field. Varsity football player, senior David Phelps stated, “The turf leads to faster play, quicker cuts, and a more intense game.”

Multiple players from many of Centennial teams, including soccer, lacrosse, and football, have been very impressed with the construction of the new turf field.

Varsity soccer player, senior Megan Oliver, stated, “There aren’t as many bumps in the field so it makes for a much cleaner game.”
