In the second battle between District 7-7A foes this season with the Eagles defeating the Cobras 58-53 back on Dec. 6, Fort Pierce Central entered as the area’s hottest team with their last loss coming on Dec. 10 to Charlotte.
In the final seconds of the third quarter, the Cobras held a 44-36 lead but Joseph Lezeau II converted a 3-point play with 1.1 seconds left that made it 44-39 going into the fourth quarter.
The two teams went back and forth most of the final eight minutes with the foul line a deciding factor.
Going into the fourth quarter, team fouls were in favor with Fort Pierce Central 9-2 but Centennial got aggressive to flip the tables and made up most of their ground at the charity stripe.
Washington, who exited the game early in the quarter after an awkward fall on his right shoulder, came back and knocked down his fourth 3-pointer of the game to give the Eagles (18-5) a 54-51 lead with 3:50 to go.
A tip-in from Zachary Brown and two free throws from Lezeau shortly after pushed Centennial’s lead to 58-53 but Josh Williams canned a 3-pointer for the Cobras to make it a two-point game with 1:45 remaining.
Washington hit a pair of free throws with 31.4 seconds left to make it 60-56 and a Fort Pierce Central turnover on their next possession ended any hopes of a Cobra comeback.
Centennial made eight 3-pointers for the game, went 21-for-23 from the free throw line that included going 17-21 in the fourth quarter and got 14 points from Lezeau and 12 from Ty Owens.
Williams led the Cobras (19-5) with 19 points, including five of Fort Pierce Central’s 3-pointers and got 11 points apiece from Derrick King and Christian Maxon.
