The Chiefs faced off against Port St. Lucie’s Centennial High School in the Santaluce’s spring football game Thursday night. Many students and former students came out to support the boys in red. Kickoff was at 6:00 and the players were ready to play.

Santaluces got off to a hot start in the first quarter when linebacker Raymone Bailey picked up a loose ball for a touchdown. This put the Chiefs up 7-0. After that, the Chief’s defense stopped Centennial so junior QB Patrick Mayes could get the ball. Nearing the end of the first quarter, Mayes connected with sophomore Trey Ingram for a touchdown reception.  At the end of the first, the Chiefs were up 14-0.

After all that, it was smooth sailing for the Chiefs. The defense racked up stops, pushed Centennial back, and sacked the Centennial QB. The defense played a huge role in the game and Centennial could not gain anything against the Chiefs. The only bump in the road was when Mayes was stripped of the ball and it went to Centennial.

Overall, the football team had a great performance and the rust looked minimal on all the players. This game was no pushover, the Chiefs went home with a W and next year’s team looks like they will give opposing teams trouble.

Final Score:

Santaluces: 17

Centennial: 7
