On Friday, October 12, the Centennial Varsity Boys Soccer team lost their fourth game of the season to their rival Mount Hebron High School.

The Mount Hebron defense limited the Eagles’ attack to few scoring opportunities throughout the game to secure their 2-0 victory.

Mount Hebron scored the first goal seven minutes into the first half. The Eagles failed to clear the ball after a cross by Mount Hebron was sent in near the front of the goal, and a Mount Hebron player tapped the ball in to put the Vikings up 1-0.

Despite giving up the early goal, Centennial settled into the game and kept their composure.

Throughout the rest of the first half, the Eagles went on the attack and applied pressure on the Mount Hebron defense. Two shots went just wide of the post for Centennial, and a header off of a free kick nearly went in, but the Mount Hebron goalie was able to save the ball.

The Eagles went into halftime trailing 1-0.

In the second half, both teams struggled to find their rhythm offensively, and did not have many scoring chances.

However, with 15 minutes remaining in the game, a Centennial defender committed a foul in the penalty box, granting Mount Hebron a penalty kick. Mount Hebron was able to capitalize on Centennial’s defensive error by scoring the penalty kick and going up 2-0.

The Eagles’ efforts to accomplish a comeback fell short as the Mount Hebron defense was able to hold onto their team’s lead and win the game.

The Varsity Boys Soccer team will be taking on Oakland Mills High School at home in their next game of the season on October 16 at 5:30pm.

Lady Eagles Take Down Undefeated Rivals in Basketball

The girls’ varsity basketball team pulled off a stunning victory in a high scoring, highly competitive game against the Hebron Vikings.

From the start, the two teams were neck and neck.  Centennial scored the first points, but Hebron quickly answered.  By the end of the first quarter, the Eagles were only up 13-11.

The Eagles came out strong in the second quarter with purpose and aggression.  Senior Kimmy Eads and freshman Kelly Simmons worked hard in the paint and helped the team to score 16 more points, and sophomore Ally Driscoll sunk a morale raising three point shot.

On the defensive end of the court, senior Anna Mitchell dominated the boards with defensive rebounds, and Driscoll caused turmoil in the Vikings’ offense with multiple steals and deflections.  The strong defensive front put up by the Eagles held the Vikings to six points for the quarter.  At the end of the first half, Centennial had extended its lead by 9 points, 29-20.

After halftime, the two teams stepped up their defensive games.  The ball changed possession quickly with steals and blocks by both teams.  Hebron outscored Centennial 14-9, but the Eagle’s lead was enough to keep them ahead going into the final quarter  with a score of 38-34.

With the end of the game approaching in the final quarter, Hebron upped the intensity level.  By pressuring the Eagles and causing many turnovers, the Vikings were able to go on a scoring run and bring the game within two.

“I knew we were getting frazzled by their intensity,” said Eads, “but we just had to push it and finish the game our way.”

Mitchell took the game back into control by converting several steals and defensive rebounds into points, and Eads and Driscoll hit several crucial foul shots.

The final seconds were stop and go as Hebron used up their fouls, and several calls went their way to keep the possession under the Eagle’s basket.  However, Driscoll intercepted the pass that would have been the Viking’s last chance to tie the game, and when the final buzzer rang out, it was the Centennial team that poured onto the court.

They had beaten their rivals -their previously undefeated rivals- 52-49.

One of the factors that helped the Eagles to emerge victorious was the extensive preparation that went into getting ready for the game.

“We had a lot of our alumni [basketball players] come back and help out at the practices,” said Eads. “Every minute of every hour was intense.”

The preparation was evident in the way every player showed up for the game.  Junior Kewa Gray put up five points, senior Jordan Burk had two, and sophomore Sandy Eicchorn snatched two rebounds and two steals.  Driscoll contributed seven points in addition to four steals, and Simmons had two steals, a block, and eleven points.

However, seniors Mitchell and Eads acted as power houses in their final regular season home game against Hebron.  Mitchell dominated the rebounding stats with 11 rebounds and put eight points on the board as well.  Eads led the team in scoring with 15 points.

The Eagles will next head to Marriotts Ridge on Friday.  According to Eads, they plan to “take every game as it comes, with the same heart, same desire, and same intensity.”
