Ladies Three-Game Homestand Concludes Tuesday
Monday, September 8, 2008

SHREVEPORT – The outstanding Centenary women’s soccer team’s defense will be put to the test on Tuesday when Louisiana-Monroe comes to town. The Ladies back row allows just a goal and a half per match, while the Warhawks offense averages four goals a game.

 

The Ladies defensive effort has been played pretty well through four matches in 2008. Centenary has allowed just a .074 shot percentage and the two goal keepers; freshman Deb Hill and junior Kate Donnelly have 31 saves.

 

Centenary’s offense, meanwhile, is led by freshman Katie Valdez, who has scored two goals and has given one assist. Also scoring goals for the Ladies has been junior Kristine Weaver and freshmen Chelsea Granger and Amanda Exford.

 

ULM, who has scored eight goals in two matches this season is led by Kelly Browne and Tiffany Bombard. Browne and Bombard have combined to score four goals, while four others have hit the back of the net once.

 

The Warhawks have let just one ball cross the white line, as opponents are shooting 1-of-24. Mallory George has 11 saves and one shutout, which came against Lamar back on Aug. 29.

 

Centenary will be on the road for four straight matches and then will return home on Friday, Sept. 26, against Louisiana Tech.
