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.
