No. 6 Centennial (Calif.) wins in rout, faces shorthanded Serra in playoff rematch next

By

Centennial (Corona, Calif.) easily handled its visitors from Utah, beating East 49-13 on Friday night.

Centennial, ranked No. 6 in the Super 25, led 28-0 at halftime and was never threatened.

Where things get interested is that Centennial faces Serra (Gardena) next week and Serra is expected to be without quarterback Khalil Tate, who was ejected during his team’s 41-15 victory against Lakewood for throwing a punch. Tate was hit late and retaliated. The sidelined emptied as both teams mixed it up.

Centennial beat Serra 68-64 last November in a classic CIF-Southern Section first-round playoff game.
