Centura Football Team Moves to 2-0

The Centura football team has not been 2-0 since 2003 and after a convincing win on Friday night vs. the Wood River Eagles, Centura has erased the long drought.

The Centurions defeated the Eagles by a resounding score of 53-6, making it the first time Centura has topped 50 points since 2000. The first half started out well with Centura building a 23-0 lead on the feet of Jose Guzman and Kaleb Johnson, both scored rushing touchdowns and Johnson added an interception return for a touchdown in the 1st quarter. Wood River did respond with a touchdown pass and the score was 23-6 at the half.

Centura came out on fire in the 2nd half scoring 30 points. Johnson added two more TD’s on the ground for the Centurions and Sophomore Noah Wooden added an interception for a TD and a long TD run.

It was a great night for the offense and defense. Centura had three 100 yard rushers on the night. Wooden had 105, Johnson had 104 and Guzman had 103. The defense held the Eagles to under 100 total yards, making it the second straight week they have held their opponent under 100 yards. For the season, Centura is averaging 366 yards per contest and giving up only 83.

Centura Football is 1-0

The Centura varsity football team traveled 150 miles to North Platte to take on the Kimball Longhorns. The long drive back was a happy one for the Centurions, as they defeated the Longhorns 14-6. The first half ended in a 0-0 tie as both teams turned the ball over multiple times. The 2nd half started much the same way the 1st half went, as the two teams traded turnovers. Kimball was the first to reach the end zone on a 26 yard pass, the 2-point conversion failed. It didn’t take long for the Centurions to strike back. Willie Packer took the kickoff down inside the 25 yard line. From there Jose Guzman scored on a 1-yard plunge, the drive was capped off with a successful 2-point conversion from Kaleb Johnson. The Centurion defense came through, as it had all night, when Jose Guzman intercepted a pass and took it back to the end zone for a touchdown. The 2-point conversion was no good. The Centura defense had to step up one last time in the closing minutes. Kimball was able to drive to the Centura 17 yard line and on 4th and 17 they broke up a long pass in the end zone.

Overall it was a tough battle, but the Centurions remained committed for 48 minutes to come away with a terrific win.

Centura is 1-0 and will travel to Wood River next Friday night.
