LITTLE ELM - The Frisco Centennial Titans (3-1, 1-0) opened up their defense of the 9-4A title in impressive fashion with a 41-6 blowout win over the Little Elm Lobos (2-2, 0-1) at the Little Elm Athletic Complex on Friday night. Senior quarterback Kelly Cordova threw for 297 yards and five touchdowns to lead the Frisco Centennial offense which rolled up 438 yards on the night. "Kelly (Cordova) is starting to really feel comfortable running the offense after playing receiver the past two years, he had a great game tonight," said Frisco Centennial HC Mark Howard after the game. Cordova threw two touchdown passes on Centennial's first six offensive plays to spring CHS to a quick 14-0 first quarter advantage. The first came on a perfectly lofted post pattern to Jackson Grimes, while the second was on a 66 yard catch and run on a screen by RB Kamari Burnett.
A rash of penalties in the second quarter prevented Frisco Centennial from extending the lead and halftime they only led 14-3 as Little Elm got on the board with 41 yard field goal from Selvin DeLeon. The Titans sloppy play ended the half as well as poor clock management caused the Titans to end the half on the Little Elm eight yard line without even attempting a field goal.
Frisco Centennial would end any hopes of Little Elm hanging around in the third quarter scoring right out of the locker room as a seven yard pass from Cordova to D.J. Jackson capped a five play drive to start the third quarter and put Centennial up 20-3. Little Elm would get a second field goal from DeLeon to stay within striking distance, but Cordova would throw touchdown tosses to Jackson and Devin McCord to put the game out of reach at 34-6 early in the fourth.
Sophomore running back Anthony Pegues would cap the scoring with a 37 yard run with 5:34 remaining for the final margin of 41-6. Centennial's defense played an outstanding game as well containing the potent Little Elm ground game to just 163 yards on 50 carries. Cordova in addition to his big night throwing the ball also led Centennial in rushing with 81 yards on six carries. Centennial will host Prosper next Thursday night, while Little Elm will visit Frisco Liberty as 9-4A action continues next week.
