SURREY — Passing efficiency was off the charts Friday as the Centaurs hit the road and secured their first win of the season over Surrey’s second-year Stars.
Quarterback Kayle Cowley went 3-of-5 for 56 yards and a touchdown, while also calling his own number five times for 43 yards and score.
In addition, fellow pivot Jovyn Sangha went 3-of-3 for 52 yards and two touchdown passes.
Brandon Wong caught a pair of one-yard touchdown passes.
Cole Kashino carried eight times for 71 yards while Ziad Sabry rushed six times for 61 yards.
“We got a very solid defensive effort,” said Centaurs’ head coach Dino Geremia, noting the efforts of both linebacker Howard Jiao (four tackles) and defensive end Stathi Tsangaris (five tackles).

The Centennial Centaurs will go into Friday’s opening game of their BC Secondary School Football Association’s regular season with something the team hasn’t had in three years — a win in its back pocket.
For the first time since 2016, the Centaurs senior football team scored more points than its opponent when they defeated Sullivan Heights 38-0 last Friday in Surrey.
After dropping a sloppy loss to Ballenas, a AA team from Vancouver Island, in the season’s first exhibition game, the Centaurs hit the field against the Stars with heightened confidence and assurance they’d learned some valuable lessons. It paid dividends immediately, as Centennial scored on its first possession, then the defence made a courageous goal line stand to repel Sullivan Heights from scoring. From there on, the game was all Centennial.
Brandon Wong caught two touchdown passes, while quarterbacks Jovyn Sangha passed for two majors and Kayle Cowley tossed another.
Out of the backfield, Cole Kashino carried the ball eight times for 71 yards and Ziab Sabry gained 61.
On defence, Stathi Tsangaris had five tackles while Howard Jiao pulled down four Sullivan Heights’ ball carriers.
“It was a big win for our team,” said Centennial coach Dino Geremia. “We were able to clean up mistakes and sloppy play from our first game the week previous and show improvement.”
