Ladies Struggle in Breezy Brookings
Friday, October 10, 2008

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Freshman Chelsea Granger had two shots on goal in the first half, but couldn’t put either away, as the Centenary women’s soccer team fell to South Dakota State, 5-0, on Friday night in Summit League action.


Granger’s first shot came at 19:52 off of a corner kick, but her header hit the cross bar and bounced away. Her second goal opportunity came about five minutes later and this time the ball was saved by Jackrabbit keeper Nicole Lograsso.


The Ladies (2-9-1) defense, meanwhile, gave up two goals in the first period and three in the second.


“The two missed shots by Granger I though proved to be the difference tonight,” said head coach Chase Wooten. “If we score off of the corner I think the game would have been played different, and would have had some momentum.”


In goal for Centenary on Friday was freshman Deb Hill and Kate Donnelly, who each had six saves. Their counterparts, Lograsso and Daniella Pappas combined to make a pair of stops.


Centenary will try to bounce back on Sunday when it travels to North Dakota State for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
