Centenary Captures First Mid-Con Win, 4-0
Sunday, October 12, 2003

Shreveport—The Centenary Ladies soccer team claimed the first-ever Mid-Continent Conference victory for any Centenary sport as it easily disposed of Western Illinois Sunday at Mayo Field. The 4-0 win extended the Ladies’ win streak to five matches.

Centenary (7-6-1, 1-1 Mid-Con) got on the board in the 32nd minute when Rebecca Swilley scored on a header off an indirect free kick from Mindi Levinski. The goal proved to be the game-winner, the second in as many matches for Swilley.

The Ladies turned up the offensive pressure in the second half where they attempted 12 of their 19 shots in the contest. Angela Tryba scored her second goal of the season at the 60:58 mark as she easily drove home a five-yard shot off a rebound.

Centenary continued the scoring as Kylie Garrett broke through in the 80th minute after taking advantage of an open net as the Western Illinois keeper was caught out of position. Courtney McCotter added a late goal with 1:02 remaining in the match to round out the scoring on the afternoon.

Western Illinois (1-13, 1-3 Mid-Con) managed only seven shots in the match and did not attempt a corner kick as Centenary dominated the action. Keeper Lindsey Stafford recorded her fourth shutout in her last five games for the Ladies.

Centenary will return to action on Wednesday as the Ladies wrap up a four-game homestand against Alcorn State.
