On the road Friday night, Century broke through for its first win of the season.
The Knights (1-0, 1-2) trailed by seven at the half, but regrouped to score 14 unanswered after halftime to earn a 14-7 victory over Winters Mill (0-2, 0-4).
Winters Mill struck first in the opening minute of the second quarter as quarterback Dominic Graham hit Kyle Anderson for a 20-yard touchdown reception down the right sideline. The extra point was good and the score remained 7-0 in favor of the Falcons the rest of the period.
Century finally got on the board to tie the score with just over six minutes to go in the third quarter, as Austin Curlett ran in a touchdown from the three-yard line. Then, with just over 11 minutes to go in the fourth quarter, running back Erik Harrell put the Knights ahead courtesy of a 14-yard rushing touchdown up the middle.
Century plays host to Francis Scott Key next Friday, while Winters Mill will look for its first win the same night at home against Liberty.
