Here is our nightly roundup of girls’ flag football box scores and game results from across the Sunshine State for Monday, March 7, 2022.
ST. THOMAS AQUINAS NABS FIRST WIN IN PROGRAM HISTORY
Everyone knows about the history of St. Thomas Aquinas’ sports programs including the 13 championships in tackle football, but history was made for the Raiders on the opening day of the 2022 season with a victory to start the era of flag football at the Fort Lauderdale-based school.
The Raiders, being led by Derek Duque who found previous success at Miami Gardens Monsignor Pace, led his team to victory No. 1 with a 13-0 shutout on the road over Miami Braddock in an afternoon tilt.
Kamryn Corporan led the way for the Raiders with an interception return for a touchdown in the 2nd quarter while scoring on a 20-yard touchdown reception in the 3rd quarter to help bring home the victory against the Bulldogs.

SPANISH RIVER BLOWS PAST OLYMPIC HEIGHTS

The statement was made early in the game with a 33-point first-quarter followed up by 13 more points in the third quarter
Quarterback Gianna Pacitti led the Sharks with 5 touchdown passes and only had one interception the entire game while Kaitlyn Ruiz had 3 sacks on the night as well as one rushing touchdown.

CENTENNIAL UPENDS ST. CLOUD IN REMATCH FROM 2021 PLAYOFFS
To open the season, Centennial picked up where they left off at and that was leaving it all on the field against St. Cloud where they lost by one point in the regional semifinals in 2021.
However, in that return trip to St. Cloud, things turned out to be almost the same exact way with the final possession and extra point determining the winner, this time going in the favor of the Eagles to start off the 2022 season on the right note with a 26-25 victory.
The biggest stat of the night for Centennial was the connection from Olivia Kaes to Tamay Heath who hooked up on touchdown passes of 66, 14, and 38 yards while Heath added a 62-yard interception return to her stat sheet for the night.
Centennial (1-0) will travel to Treasure Coast on Thursday afternoon for their second game of the season.
We knew it wouldn’t be an easy ‘go round’ after a round trip to Tampa Saturday, but the Lady Eagles hold on to win 26-25 after watching our lead diminish late. Those St Cloud Bulldogs have some bite! #WAYA #HailCentennial #Cen10Flag@FlaHSFootball @MaxPreps @Bryan_Cooney pic.twitter.com/D3bqNZYtZa
