On Wednesday, December 11, the Centennial boys’ basketball team hosted Mount Hebron High School in their second game of the regular season. The Eagles won by a final score of 66-47. 

A hot start for senior Jeong Hwang gave Centennial an early lead that they never gave up. Hwang scored the first six points for the Eagles and they went on to close out the first quarter with a five-point lead. 

Following a strong defensive performance in the first half, Centennial entered halftime leading Mount Hebron 28-19. 

Despite Mount Hebron’s scoring run to begin the third quarter, they were unable to overcome Centennial’s offensive threats. A phenomenal third quarter performance from senior Matt Schickner had the student section up on their feet. 

With under two seconds remaining in the third quarter, Schickner pulled up from just over halfcourt and nailed a three-point dagger to beat the clock. The sea of white erupted in the stands and Centennial never looked back. His miracle shot stole the momentum after the Eagles allowed three straight buckets.

Centennial did not let up as they scored 20 points in the fourth quarter to seal the win. Hwang led the team in scoring with 15 total points. Senior Joey Sedlacko and Schickner both finished with 11 points.

Centennial hopes to take down Reservoir High School on Friday, December 13, at 7:00pm.
