It’s hard to imagine a much more dominant defensive outing for Centennial than what the Bulldogs churned out Thursday night.
Centennial held host Bonanza to 22 total yards, according to HUDL statistics, on its way to a 69-0 romp to open Northwest League play.
“We tell our defense every time out, we shoot for a shutout,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said. “They played lights-out football.”
The Bulldogs (5-0) held the Bengals to minus-9 rushing yards and forced six turnovers.
Centennial had no problems offensively, as Rhamondre Stevenson carried 11 times for 125 yards and three touchdowns.
Jamaal Evans, Brandan Harley, Savon Scarver and Joseph Ceniseros also rushed for one touchdown apiece.
The Bulldogs’ passing game was crisp, as starting quarterback Juan Rodriguez completed 4 of 6 passes for 60 yards and two touchdowns, and Evans fired a TD pass of his own. Scarver, Andre Meiers and Tyler Hennis each hauled in a TD.
“When we got a short field, we really capitalized,” coach Evans said. “One of our problems was getting the ball in the end zone. Tonight, we got opportunities and were successful.”
Bonanza dropped to 0-6.
