  • Jr. Boys Soccer: The Junior boys soccer team played the defending champion GCVI in the D10 soccer finals yesterday afternoon.  The Jr. Spartans fell behind early 1-0 but fought hard to tie the game on a great shot by Logan.  Centennial then took the lead 2-1 after another great shot by Tristan.  Unfortunately, GCVI tied it up 2-2 and sent the game to extra time.  After a questionable red card, CCVI was forced to play with 1 player short for most of overtime, yet the Jr Spartans continued to battle and keep the game tied at 2-2. After extra time, the game went to penalty kicks, in which Centennial lost, despite the heroic saves of Goalkeeper David. Amazing efforts & teamwork all around – Luka, Nik, Tristan, Seungmo, Mohammed, Deacon, Myles, Logan, Andres, David, Konnor, Griffin, Marcus, Malcolm, Raul, Jon & Bob! Your coaches and your school are proud of you!  Congratulations to you all for an amazing season and for taking the championship game right to the limit!
