Centennial 9, No. 10 Glenelg 6: After 60 consecutive wins against Howard County opponents in regular and postseason play since 2009, the Gladiators dropped their opener to the Eagles at Western Regional Park.

Quinn Western scored two goals within the first two minutes of the contest and tacked on another score and two assists for the Eagles in the victory.

"It's something that we've worked very hard for, for a long time," said Kellinger, whose team fell to Glenelg by one goal in each of the past two seasons.

"They are the class of the county. But, at the end of the day, I told these guys that no team had won any games yet this year. It's the start of a new season."

From Austin Kraisser's dominance at the faceoff position, to the defense throughout the game, Glenelg coach Josh Hatmaker said Centennial (1-0) just outplayed his team overall.

"They played with more energy," the nine-year coach said. "That's on me. I don't think our kids were as prepared as they should be."

The opening minutes of Centennial's 2014 season were filled with precision and a high-tempo style of play.

Western's two goals came within one minute of each other, digging a hole that the Gladiators (0-1) fought to climb out of for the entirety of the first half.

"Quinn is just an incredibly dynamic player," Kellinger said. "There's just so much that kid can do."

Glenelg finally scored inside the four-minute mark of the first quarter, when Nick Forrest found Luke Cheswick for the Gladiators' first goal of the season.

"This is just one win. We're not guaranteed anything by beating Glenelg," Western said.

"But it's still a big one. And it feels good."
