Centennial keeps scoring and scoring and scoring

The Eagles make nine trips to the end zone in a 70-50 win over Reynolds


by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Centennial lineman Alex Thavongsack, 50, celebrates with teammates after scoring on an interception return in the fourth quarter Thursday. 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 didn’t result in points was the team’s 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.
