Ladies Suffer First Loss of Season, 6-1 to Detroit
Sunday, September 19, 2004



DETROIT – The Centenary women’s soccer team suffered their first defeat of the season, falling on the road to Detroit, 6-1. After entering the break even at one apiece, the Titans went on a second half tear, putting the game away with five unanswered goals.

The five-goal differential was by far the largest discrepancy for the Ladies (5-1-1, 1-0) this year, with freshman keeper Ali Hilsher getting her first collegiate start in goal. Centenary’s lone goal came from fellow freshman Tara Sageser, who kept her season-long scoring streak alive, tying the game in the 18th minute off a penalty kick.

Detroit’s Mary Parker recorded her second consecutive hat trick, scoring three goals as the Titans (4-3-1) out-shot the Ladies 16-8. Shelly Piccirillo added two assists and a goal of her own.

Centenary travels again this Thursday to face Mid-Con opponent Southern Utah, then matches up against UC-Riverside in Cedar City on Saturday.
