This is sure to be a close game between two evenly matched teams. Somerset Academy will need to find a way to slow down the Bulldogs’ running game and force turnovers. Centennial will need to protect the football and capitalize on their scoring opportunities.
Centennial won the previous matchup between the two teams this season, 28-21, on September 8th.
