Our Centennial Titans made the short trip down Coit road Friday night to take on the Richardson Eagles. The ride home probably felt a lot longer, however, after a mistake-filled outing found the squad on the losing end of the 31-21 contest.
Call it opening day jitters or just poor form, the two teams combined for 25 penalties, racking up 207 yards. Ouch.
On the plus side, senior quarterback Nick Foster amassed 336 passing yards, completing 31 of his 45 passes. Zach McCown hauled in 7 of those, for a team leading 117 yards. Cole Nead snagged 7 of his own, including 2 for touchdowns. Jamel Bullock combined 48 receiving yards with 43 rushing and a 32 yard kick return to lead all Titans with 123 all-purpose yards.
But the Richardson Eagles used big plays to jump on top of the Titans and hang on for the win.
