Centennial Shocks Top Ranked Dowling Catholic 22-19

WEST DES MOINES - Top ranked Dowling Catholic has been the team to beat in the state of Iowa for the last 5 years.  The Maroons are 59-2 the last 5 years.

Friday night Ankeny Centennial proved why they were a pre-season top 3 team in the state.  The Jaguars shocked Dowling 22-19.

The Maroons led 12-0 at the half, but three 2nd half TD's by Jensen Gates and Hunter Wright helped Centennial take the lead for good.  Dowling had a chance to tie in the final seconds but Riley Smidt's 42 yard FG attempt was wide right, by inches.

Centennial wins the district title, improves to 6-2, Dowling falls to 7-1.
