UNLV Takes 1-0 Win Over Gents
Sunday, September 13, 2009
TULSA, Okla.-In the final match of the Golden Eagles Invitational, the Centenary men's soccer team was silenced by UNLV, falling 1-0 on Sunday.

The Gents (0-3-1) dropped their second straight contest by just one goal.

It took 40 minutes of play before one team found the back of the net. UNLV's Stephen Sifuentes netted his first goal on a header shot off an assist by teammate Nick Marshall to make it a 1-0 game.

Two saves by junior keeper Rennie Walker with five minutes to play in the opening half allowed UNLV to enter the second frame with just a slight advantage.

To open the second half, the first 15 minutes remained silent before UNLV put up two shots on goal, but were again saved by Walker near the 60-minute mark.

Centenary junior midfielder Josh Gomillion put up the Gents' only shot of the game at 65:06, but was blocked by a UNLV defender.

A very quiet effort all around allowed UNLV to use its 1-0 first half advantage for the win.

Walker was in goal almost all 90 minutes with eight saves, while freshman Robbie Ramirez replaced him at the end, but didn't garner any saves.

As a team, Centenary put up just one shot by Gomillion to UNLV's 12 led by Nick Marshall and Robert Garcia with three each.

The Gents will travel to Missouri State for a 1 p.m. match start on Wednesday.
