No. 5 Centennial builds 55-point first half lead en route to blowout

By

It was a historic blowout … in the first half alone.

No. 5 Corona Centennial rushed to a 65-10 halftime lead against crosstown rival Santiago on the way to a 79-31 victory, the latest in a season-long cruise for the Huskies. Centennial jumped out to a 29-0 lead and held a 37-10 lead at the end of the first period. In fact, it only went downhill from there for Santiago, with Centennial’s offense proving nearly unstoppable all night long.

If there were any concerns for Centennial, they likely focused on the team’s defense, which allowed points in every quarter against an overmatched Santiago squad.

In the end, those are small concerns for a team that rapidly appears to be a legitimate national contender. If the Huskies head into the CIF playoffs — and, eventually, a potential matchup against No. 2 ranked St. John Bosco — with an undefeated regular season, all bets are off.
