SHREVEPORT – The Centenary women’s soccer team dropped their third consecutive match as they fell to visiting Grambling State 2-1, their first loss to the Lady Tigers in program history.


The Ladies jumped to an early lead in the 10th minute as senior Sam Savage scored off a cross by sophomore Bre Fletcher.  Centenary was in control for the early stages of the match and outshot Grambling 22-16 throughout the match.


Grambling would knot the match at 1-1 with just over a minute left in the first half, taking advantage of the traffic in front of the net off a corner kick.  Unable to cleanly clear the ball, the Ladies gave up the goal at the 43:58 point.


In a second half that saw about as many fouls from GSU as shots from Centenary, the Lady Tigers picked up 11 fouls to go with their three yellow cards of the match.  Grambling would score the game-winner in the 59th minute off a breakaway collected off a short clear.


The Ladies will take the weekend off before traveling to Indiana to take on Mid-Continent Conference foes IUPUI and Valparaiso the following weekend.
