In a low-scoring game in Clifton on March 5, Chantilly defeated Centreville 14-7. Chantilly’s Michael Tacinelli’s 77 yard touchdown reception would put Chantilly up early. After a scoreless 2nd quarter, Jack Shields would find Nick Ragano for a 32 yard touchdown reception. In the 4th quarter, Chantilly’s running back would power his way in for a few yards out to give Chantilly the lead again, 14-7. On the ensuing kickoff, Centerville's Nick Ragano would return the kick for a touchdown, however, a penalty on Centreville nullified the touchdown. Later in the 4th in the closing seconds Centreville QB Jack Shields scrambled from the pocket to find an open Centreville receiver in the end zone, but a penalty for an illegal forward pass nullified the touchdown once again. Chantilly would take a few knees and charge home with a big conference win. Chantilly (2-0) will play at Hayfield on March 12. Centreville (2-1) will host Oakton on March 13.
