Centaurus junior Sarah Brown hopes to lead some road magic for the Warriors as they visit Kent Denver in the state quarterfinals.

The Centaurus girls lacrosse team is one win away from a return trip to the Final Four, but the Warriors face a stern road challenge at Kent Denver. A look at the matchup:

(5) Centaurus at (4) Kent Denver

When: 4:30 p.m., Wednesday.

Records: Centaurus 13-2; Kent Denver 10-6.

Notes: The Warriors are just one win away from a return trip to the Final Four … After receiving a first-round bye, Centaurus opened state tournament play with a dominant 18-3 win against Palmer Ridge … The Warriors’ Brown sisters, junior Sarah and freshman Audrey, each contributed five goals against Palmer Ridge … Kent Denver handed Centaurus one of its two losses in the Warriors’ third game of the season, posting a 19-16 win on March 15 … The Brown sisters also combined for 10 goals in that game, with Sarah Brown scoring six and Audrey adding four … The Warriors’ primary challenge will be to slow down the Sun Devils’ Catherine Ellis. Kent’s Cornell-bound star leads the state in both goals (75) and assists (52). Ellis recorded six goals and five assists in the teams’ previous meeting … The Sun Devils opened the tournament with a 20-5 win against St. Mary’s Academy … The winner will take on either Arapahoe or top-seeded Regis Jesuit in the state semifinals Saturday at the University of Denver’s Peter Barton Stadium.
