Ready to take the field at the Ford Center, the offense huddles on the sideline during Thursday's game against Centennial.

Football battled the Titans at The Ford Center Thursday night in its third District 5-5A game with Centennial winning 42-21.

Centennial started off strong, scoring four times in the first quarter and with another touchdown in the second quarter for a 35-0 lead.

“Our first half was awful,” senior quarterback Mitchell Miller said. “We couldn’t stop them on defense and our offense couldn’t move the ball.”

The Redhawks began to find a rhythm in the second half, outscoring the Titans 21-7, but it wasn’t enough as the team dropped its third straight district game, leaving the team at 0-6 on the season.

“We played really well the second half,” Miller said. “The defense stepped up and held them to only one touchdown, and we scored three. I think our team has continued to improve, we just had a slow start, but we know we’re gonna continue working to get our first win as long as we continue to do our jobs and play for each other.”
