Ladies Fall to LSUS in Mayor's Cup Battle, 3-2
Tuesday, September 13, 2011
SHREVEPORT-The Centenary women's soccer team came one goal away from securing the inaugural Mayor's Cup, but it was LSU-Shreveport's 3-2 win that gave the Pilots the 2011 victory on Monday evening on Mayo Field.

The Ladies (2-3) who have dropped their last three battled the Pilots and matched their goals until LSUS sank a shot off the foot of Kim Phelps at the 85th minute for the win.

Centenary tied the game at 1-1 when senior Candace Rushing found junior Courtney Cleveland for Cleveland's first goal of the season at the 38-minute mark.

LSUS would then respond to take the lead early in the second half, but senior Laura Immenschuh's perfect placement in the bottom right corner off a penalty kick gave Centenary life after 60 minutes of play.

The Pilots out shot Centenary, 31 to 12 on the evening. Junior Traci Lee had three shots, while Immenschuh, junior Holden Penney and Cleveland had two.

Freshman keeper Brittaney Dunn suffered the loss in goal after collecting a career-best 13 saves and allowing three, while playing all 90 minutes.

Centenary and LSUS played in front of a record crowd of over 1,000 fans at Mayo Field. All proceeds made from Monday's Mayor's Cup event went directly to the March of Dimes in Shreveport.

Centenary will return to action this Friday when it hosts ASC opponent, Schreiner at 2 pm on Mayo Field, followed by Texas Lutheran on Saturday at 1 pm.
