SHREVEPORT, La. – The Ladies controlled the tempo for most of the game and held on despite a late goal by the YellowJackets as Centenary (3-5-1) beat LeTourneau (6-3-2) 2-1 Tuesday night, October 3, in a non-conference regional-rivalry game at Mayo Field.

In the games 20th minute, sophomore Kyra Montes crossed a ball to recent sub, classmate Gabby Lovemore. Lovemore finished near post to put the Ladies up 1-0 for her first collegiate goal of her career. Centenary went up 2-0 when in the 70th minute, sophomore Olivia Jackson crossed a ball in front of the goal. However, LeTourneau’s Brittany Boyd deflected the ball into the net to put Centenary up 2-0.

While the YellowJackets outshot the Ladies 13-10, the home team used a 6-5 advantage in shots on target.

LeTourneau’s Kennedy Keer tried to put a ball in the upper 90 in the 74th minute, but Centenary freshman Maggie Pitcher pushed the ball above the crossbar. Seven minutes later, Tamara Martin put a through-ball into Keer when Pitcher came out, but Keer beat the defense for her third goal of the season.

Despite the late goal, LeTourneau was held without a shot in the final nine minutes as Centenary held on for the win.
