IRVING, Texas – Jeremy Klespis scored two goals for the Centenary men’s soccer team, but it wasn’t enough as Austin College defeated the Gents 3-2 in Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play.

Klespis scored the first two goals of the contest to place the Maroon and White up 2-0 less than 30 minutes. The first score for the sophomore came in the 18’ as he punched a loose ball into the lower right corner.

The Huntsville, Texas, native added his second goal in the 29’ again beating Roos’ keeper Andrew Celio to the lower right corner. Both scores came on the only two attempts by Klespis on the contest.

Jason Aiken led the Gents with four shots with Gabe Zahm adding three shots. Centenary finished the outing with 12 attempts.

The 2-0 advantage held until the 45’ as Roberto Varela took an assist from Roberto Gutierrez to cut the lead in half at the intermission.

Chris Abad-Jacobi knotted the contest in the 63’ off an assist from Varela and Sebastien Iribarren. Abad-Jacobi didn’t stop there collecting his second goal of the contest just over a minute later for the game-winner. Matt Rowlands logged an assist on the game-winner.

Rylan Whan suffered the loss in net for the Gents allowing recording three saves against six shots on goal in the contest. AC attempted 19 shots in the affair.

Celio picked up the win with four saves in the full 90 minutes.
