Monday, April 21, 2008

SHREVEPORT – In its final spring tune-up, the Centenary men’s soccer team won all three games at the LeTourneau Spring Tournament.


In the Gents first game of the tournament they defeated Lon Morris College, 1-0, scoring their lone goal in the first half. In the next game, Centenary and Houston Baptist were tied after regulation and had to do overtime. The Gents came away with a shoot out victory, 4-3.


To close out the tournament, Centenary needed a goal in each half to secure a 2-1 victory over host LaTourneau. Late in the game LaTourneau tried to make a come back by scoring a goal late, but with time running out it couldn’t find the back of the net again.  


Centenary’s next official action will be on Aug. 21, at UT-Tyler in an exhibition match, and the Gent will close the preseason with an afternoon contest against Harding on Aug. 23.
