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.

On Tuesday, September 1, the new turf field and Centennial saw its first game action as the Centennial Girls’ Soccer team scrimmaged visiting Catonsville High School, coming out on top. This was the first game held on Centennial’s new turf field. The team christened the field with a shout-out win setting the standards high for the upcoming fall season.

 

The Eagles came out firing early, creating numerous scoring chances in the first ten minutes. Along with getting the goal opportunities, the Eagles also dominated the possession battle. Senior Reese Western made the offense work, beating her defender to the ball countless times and generating opportunities for herself as well as her teammates. Fellow senior Jesse Dunagan was also an offensive threat, letting multiple shots fly in the first half.

 

With 7:38 left in the first half, freshman Mckenna Griffin found herself on a breakaway and buried the ball in the opposite corner for the first goal not only of the season, but also of her high school career.

 

The Eagles entered the second half with a 1-0 lead.

 

The second half was almost a mirror image of the first. The Eagles were a threat and created many opportunities. The defense however was a big part of the possession advantage. Junior Cristina Narron and senior goalie Allie Durkee, anchored a defense that was very effective.

 

Western generated offense in the second half, and with the help of junior Jasmine McCree and sophomore Kirsten Wikner, the Catonsville team had their hands full trying to stop the dynamic Centennial offense.

 

The night however, would not be over for Griffin. With just over 9:30 to play, she was forced to the ground in the penalty box, and was awarded and penalty kick. As she placed the ball on the new turf, she collected herself and stuck the shot right under the crossbar for her second goal of the game.

 

With a great mix of young talent and veteran experience, the Eagles will look to build off this scrimmage and take what they learned into the regular season.
