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.”
