Centennial has proven repeatedly that it can rack up touchdowns on the ground.
Against Bonanza on Friday night, the Bulldogs showed they were capable of doing the same through the air. Junior quarterback Jamaal Evans threw five touchdown passes as Centennial blew out Bonanza 49-6.
“For us to be successful, we’ve got to be balanced,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said. “We’ve got three or four running backs playing well but we’ve got to keep people honest and throw the ball too.”
Savon Scarver and Kayon Miller each caught two of Jamaal Evans’ touchdown passes, with Tyler Hennis accounting for the other. Centennial totaled 188 passing yards, but managed even more on the ground.
Ray Tyler led a rushing attack that recorded 425 yards. The game was the teams’ league-opener in the Sunset Northwest league, keeping Centennial on track for a mega-showdown with rival Arbor View at the end of the year.
“You always want to start out with a score like that,” Leon Evans said. “We didn’t play great tonight but we’re going to keep getting better.”
