SHREVEPORT- The Centenary women's soccer team will lace up away from Mayo Field for the first time since September 24, when the Ladies travel to Tyler, Texas and Austin, Texas this weekend for more ASC action. First, the Ladies will take on UT-Tyler on Thursday at 5 pm, followed by meeting Concordia (TX) at 5:30 pm on Saturday.

The Ladies (8-5, 6-2) will return to action following a good showing this past weekend when they hosted McMurry and defending National Champion, Hardin-Simmons. The Ladies defeated McMurry 4-0 on Thursday night. Junior Holden Penney and senior Laura Immenschuh scored a goal apiece, while junior Courtney Cleveland netted two of her own on the evening.

Senior Candace Rushing has added four goals and five assists to the mix. Following closely is Cleveland with five goals. Freshman keeper, Brittaney Dunn has made 69 saves and shutout six opponents.

The Patriots of UT-Tyler are currently on a 6-game winning streak. UT-Tyler's last loss came on September 17 in a 3-0 drop to Hardin-Simmons.
