SHREVEPORT, La. – Apparently, the Gents and Mountaineers like playing extra soccer.

For the fourth time in the last five meetings, Centenary (4-4, 1-3 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) and Schreiner (1-7-1, 0-4 SCAC) have gone to overtime. But for the second-consecutive game between the two teams in Shreveport, the Maroon and White recorded the golden goal early in the extra session as the Gents knocked off Schreiner 2-1 on Friday night, Sept. 23.

In the 92nd minute, sophomore Seth Fountain was tight to the goal line on the left side. He crossed far post to the chest to freshman Scott Halper, who brought the ball down and sneaked in the ball inside the post for his second collegiate goal and his first game winner.

The game-winner proved to be the only shot taken by the Gents in overtime.

Centenary found themselves outshot 13-6, but the Gents made the most of their opportunities. Four of six shots were on goal, while Schreiner put seven shots on target. Senior Rylan Whan (4-4) grabbed two saves for the win between the pipes for the Gents, while Schreiner goalie Brandon Anselmi (1-1) saved four shots in the loss.

The Maroon and White’s only shot in the first half also happened to find the back of the net. In the 27th minute, sophomore Braylen Hollins stole the ball in the box on the right side and went far post for his first collegiate goal. The Mountaineers tied the game on a mad scramble right before intermission. Tight to the line on the left side, Robert Hensley crossed far post and found Eddie Martinez for his first goal of the season.

Centenary returns to action for a noon kickoff against the top-ranked Trinity Tigers on Sunday, Sept. 25.
