Centennial keeps scoring and scoring and scoring
The Eagles make nine trips to the end zone in a 70-50 win over Reynolds
The only thing that could stop Centennial on Thursday night was the clock.
The Eagles took a 10-point lead into the locker room and piled on points every time they touched the ball in the second half to earn a 70-50 win against Reynolds.
Centennial had six second-half drives. The first ended with a 40-yard field goal by Zach Leslie, the next four found the end zone.
The only possession that didnt result in points was the teams final drive, which took the final 4:14 off the clock and ended with a series of kneel downs.
The clincher came early in the fourth quarter when Reynolds QB Josh Schleining dropped back to the goal line to set up a screen pass. But Centennial lineman Alex Thavongsack saw the play coming, dropped into coverage and picked off the pass in a crowd at the 5-yard line. A few quick steps, and he was in the end zone.
Centennial led 64-42 with 11:48 to play.
The Eagles moved to 4-0 in league play, setting up a showdown with Central Catholic in two weeks at Hillsboro Stadium in the regular-season finale.
