Sierra Pinheiro

The Girl´s Soccer season is off to a decent start, currently standing at an 2-3-1 record. Through six games they have been outscored 17-15. After a cancelled game against Dallas last Thursday, they lost a close game Saturday 3-4 to McMinnville. Monday Night, the Eagles pulled off an exciting comeback win against Putnam to win 2-1.

Coach Kelsey Birkhofer described the game against Putnam as “pretty crazy.” Despite the fact that Centennial had a significant possession advantage, they failed to capitalize on their opportunities to score. They struggled to put the game away and allowed Putnam to hang around for too long.
