Saturday, September 11, 2010
SHREVEPORT-Sophomore Kelly Fossard notched her second goal of the season, but it wasn't enough as the Centenary women's soccer team dropped an overtime thriller, 2-1, to Mississippi College on Friday evening at Mayo Field.

The Ladies (1-3-0) took the early lead at the 34-minute mark when junior Candace Rushing's pass from the top of the box contributed to Fossard's goal for her third assist of the season.

Minutes later, Mississippi College's Lesly Melo found the back of the net on a short pass from teammate Hannah Langley to tie the score at 1-1.

A solid defensive second half led to a stalemate score, forcing the game into overtime. The Lady Choctaws were able to produced first with 14-seconds left to play in the first overtime when Hollye Henderson found Molly Dearborn for the goal that skimmed the fingers of Centenary goal keeper Kalyn Harris for the win.

Centenary was able to put up 13 total shots, led by Fossard with five, three of which landed on goal. Rushing tallied three shots, two on goal and senior Kortney Causey fired off two shots, one on goal.

Mississippi College was consistent offensively, forcing 19 shots, 13 landing on goal. Melo led the attack with seven shots, five on goal.

Harris, in the net for Centenary, played all 99 minutes, collecting 11 saves, but suffering the loss.

Centenary will take the field at inner-city rival, LSUS, on Tuesday at 4 pm.
