Centennial posted its first win of the season with a 5-1 win over Mt. Hebron this week.

The Eagles came from behind after giving up a goal 13 minutes into the game to even the score by halftime and shut out Mt. Hebron over the final 40 minutes. Centennial is now 1-2 in the league standings and 1-4-1 overall.

“This turnaround started with the second half against Reservoir,” said Centennial coach Steve Baxter, recalling a loss on Sept. 11. “We dominated a solid team (Reservoir) for 40 minutes, but just couldn't score as we lost 1-0. Tonight, we were able to finish from inside the penalty box to score five times on 12 shots. 

“We still have areas we must improve and will work hard to get better,” he added, after the Sept. 13 game against Mt. Hebron.

Anna Mitchell, a sophomore, led the offense with three goals and an assist. Ruthie Lucas and Darby Sinunu scored their first goals of the season.

Baxter said Mt. Hebron was “very dangerous on counter attacks” throughout the game.  

Sammie Albornoz, Carolyn Eichhorn and Mitchell had assists for Centennial. No scoring details were available for Mt. Hebron. 

Dragons still unbeaten

Sabrina DeLeonibus’ hat trick led Glenelg Country School to a 5-1 win over Baltimore Lutheran and its third straight win of the season.

Chloe Lewis and Deja Hursey also scored and both had assists as well for the Dragons. Glenelg Country had a 2-0 halftime lead.

Minahil Choudry had four saves in the net for the Dragons.

Another shut out for River Hill

Michaela Hennesey scored off a cross from Katie Arensmeier at 13 minutes to put River Hill in the driver’s seat en route to a 4-0 win over Wilde Lake.

With its third straight shutout, River Hill (5-0) is still unbeaten this season and has two county wins. The Hawks snapped Wilde Lake’s three-game win streak and handed the Wildecats their first league setback. Wilde Lake is 3-2 overall and 2-1 in the county.

Alex Hamer, Sheridan Street and Arensmeier also scored in the win. Arensmeier had three assists and Hamer one.

“We held them to one goal at the half, and we had some pretty good opportunities from Brynn Drury and Maria Pascale, but their team is very strong,” said Wilde Lake coach Davia Procida. She said her keeper, Lauren Hutchinson, made 12 saves, including a finger-tip save from a lofty volley from Street.

“We were definitely challenged the hardest we have been this season, and I am very interested to see how we bounce back from this game,” Procida added.

Crable sets up two goals

Samantha Price finished off a shot from Morgan Crable with four minutes left in the first overtime period to give Marriotts Ridge a 2-1 win and hand Atholton its first county loss.

“It is always a battle when the two of us meet,” said Marriotts Ridge coach Robin Grey, whose team is now 4-0 for the season and unbeaten in three county contests. “Much of tonight wasn't pretty for us. It definitely wasn't our best effort, but we were able to collect ourselves and finish it off in overtime to get the win.”
