MACOMB, Ill – Centenary men’s soccer goalkeeper Donnie Henderson broke the record for saves in a season as the Gents fell to Western Illinois 4-1 on the road.  Henderson grabbed seven saves en route to setting the mark at 105, formerly held by Scott Wright who set it in 1988 at 102.  He becomes the second Centenary keeper to break the single-season mark for saves this season, as Ladies netminder Ali Hilsher broke the women’s record as well.


Western Illinois (5-8-2, 3-1-1 Mid-Con) put two goals on the board in the first half, as Nick Bohnenkamp scored a pair in the seventh and 43rd minutes.  The Leathernecks outshot Centenary 12 to one in the first half, as Handerson collected five of his seven saves in the period.


Senior J.J. Meyer would score the lone Centenary (3-12-0, 1-3-0 Mid-Con) goal in the match, scoring in the 70th minute with an assist from sophomore Aaron Volanksi.  Volanksi led the Gents with a pair of shots in the contest.


The Leathernecks would score two more goals in the match, one in the 61st minute and the cushion goal to make it 4-1 in the 87th minute.


Centenary has two more matches left in the 2005 season, both on the road.  The Gents travel next weekend to face UMKC in Kansas City, Mo., and Oral Roberts in Tulsa, Okla.
