SHREVEPORT-The Centenary women's soccer team continued to battle ULM, before falling 3-2, on Wednesday evening in non-conference play on Mayo Field.

The Ladies (2-1) used determination and heart to fight back from a 3-0 deficit to score the final two goals of the game, making it a one-point contest after 90 minutes of play.

ULM took the early lead with a goal at the 6-minute mark off the foot of Taylor Bonetti. The Warhawks then capitalized on a penalty kick by Alyssa Wooden giving them the 2-0 lead after 14 minutes of play. Bonetti would then fire off her second goal of the game at the 19-minute mark before being held scoreless by Centenary the remainder of the contest.

The Ladies gave themselves a chance when freshman Carly Slovensky netted her second career goal at the 43-minute mark in the first half, assisted by junior Holden Penney.

Centenary's defense played an intense second half, limiting ULM to just four shots and no goals.

Down 3-1, Centenary surged to net its second goal when Penney took ULM's keeper one-on-one for the tap in at the 47-minute mark in the second half.
