Sunday, October 9, 2011
SHREVEPORT-A strong effort and presence was evident on Saturday afternoon as the Centenary women's soccer team was edged by defending National Champion, Hardin-Simmons 2-0 in ASC play on Mayo Field.

The Ladies dropped their first conference game at home this season, falling to 8-5 overall and 6-2 in ASC action.

Hardin-Simmons fired off a game-high 19 shots to Centenary's two. The Ladies tallied shots by senior Candace Rushing and junior Holden Penney. Rushing's shot was the only one landing on goal.

Freshman goal keeper Brittaney Dunn made seven saves in goal, but would suffer the loss, falling to 8-5 on the year.

Centenary maintained an impressive defensive outing, despite Hardin-Simmons controlling most of the offensive possessions.

The Cowgirls scored at the 32-minute mark on a goal by Taylor Thigpen and later notched their second goal at the 81-minute mark on a goal by Miranda Bersosa.

Centenary will return to action when it travels to Tyler, Texas to take on UT-Tyler on Thursday at 5 pm.
