With an offensive attack that included three home runs and fine pitching from Katie Hobson, the No. 11 Centennial softball team had a surprisingly easy time at Mount Hebron yesterday, coming away with a 5-0 win over the No. 13 Vikings.

Michelle Grap, Jessica Grimshaw and Teri Swinson supplied the power, each hitting bases-empty homers for the Eagles, who had seven hits. Hobson struck out eight and allowed three hits to notch the shutout.

The Eagles improved to 2-0, while Mount Hebron took its second straight shutout loss. On Tuesday, the Vikings opened the season with a 2-0 setback to No. 6 Catonsville.

Last season, Mount Hebron eliminated Centennial in the regional title game, handing the Eagles their first loss of the season after 20 wins.

"That was actually the second time they knocked us out of the playoffs," Grap said. "When we talk, we try not to psyche each other out because we know they beat us in the region playoffs the past two years. It's been a rivalry for a really long time with them. We were definitely ready to beat them."
