Centennial breaks out of funk, dominates Canyon Springs

Liberty Dominates Centennial High School Football

L.E. Baskow

The Centennial football team breaks through their banner as they take the field facing Liberty during high school football game on Friday, September 18, 2015.

After some early-season struggles, the Centennial High football team found its rhythm tonight.

It scored four touchdowns in the second quarter against host Canyon Springs and won 58-7.

“We finally put it together,” Centennial coach Leon Evans said.

Centennial improves to 4-1 on the season, but unlike its other wins, the Bulldogs left no doubt. Last week, they suffered a three-touchdown loss to No. 2 Liberty in a game that got the players’ attention.

“Walking out of that game, we didn’t feel Liberty was 20 points better than us,” Evans said. “The kids were focused and locked in this week.”

Kayvon Miller rushed 20 times for 154 yards and two touchdowns for Centennial, and Ray Tyler had 46 yards and two touchdowns on 10 carries.

Jamaal Evans completed 14 of 21 passes for 181 yards and rushed 20 times for 133 yards and four touchdowns.

Centennial starts Northwest League play next week by hosting Bonanza.

“We needed this one going into division,” Evans said.
