by: THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Centennials Jacob Schultz, 5, scored the winning goal with about five minutes left in the first half Thursday night. The Centennial boys soccer team boosted its playoff hopes Thursday night with a 2-1 home win over Central Catholic.

The Rams, who have already clinched the MHC title, struck first with a goal in the first 10 minutes.

Centennial scored twice in a five-minute span just before halftime, moving in front on goals by Josue Robledo and Jacob Schultz.

Centennial (3-3-2) remains one point behind David Douglas (3-2-3) in the chase for the league’s final playoff spot with two matches left in the regular season.

The Eagles snapped Central’s 19-game league win streak that dated to the end of the 2011 season.
