Centennial tops S. Carroll, 14-5 Boys lacrosse

April 15, 1993|By Jeff Seidel | Jeff Seidel,Contributing Writer

Centennial gave South Carroll a lesson in lacrosse last night.

Werner Krueger had four goals and three assists, and Tony Harding added five goals and one assist to lead visiting Centennial to a 14-5 victory over South Carroll.

Centennial (5-1) dominated from the start. The Eagles kept the ball much of the time, waiting for openings against the South Carroll zone.

"Ball movement, that's the key," said Centennial coach Mike Siegert. "Against a zone, you have to be patient and move the ball."

That's what the Eagles did, holding the ball for long stretches and eventually finding a good shot. South Carroll, meanwhile, went long stretches without the ball and came up with few shots.

"They've got good stickwork," Cavaliers coach Gene Brown said of Centennial. "They're a nice team."

The Cavaliers didn't test Centennial too often. Centennial's two goalies combined for a total of three saves.

Rob Hauff started things for Centennial, scoring just 36 seconds into the game with an assist from Krueger. Harding and Hauff teamed up with 6:11 left in the first quarter.

Brad Blizzard (two goals) then got South Carroll (3-1) on the board, spinning away from a defender and firing a shot in from 10 yards out with 1:59 left in the quarter.

Centennial answered quickly, as Krueger scored off Harding's pass 51 seconds later. Harding stretched the lead to 4-1 with 7:31 left in the half with an assist from Brian Rhodes (three assists).

"We all came out kind of flat," said Krueger. "We just tried to get things going."
