KERRVILLE, Texas – Gents senior goalie Rylan Whan broke the career saves record in the 83rd minute, but two late goals by the Maroon and White were not enough as Centenary (4-10, 1-9 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) fell to Schreiner (3-11-2, 2-7-1) 3-2 Friday afternoon in Kerrville, Texas.

Shortly after an own goal by Centenary in the 63rd minute, Whan snatched a header shot to tie Scott Wright (1988-91) with 372 career saves. Almost 20 minutes later, he stopped another header to break the record.

After three first-half goals by Schreiner, The Gents put pressure on the Mountaineers to try and send the game to another overtime for the fifth time in the last six meetings between the two teams. In the 87th minute, Chase Clark’s shot went off the post, but sophomore Nick Hammond cleaned up the rebound for his third goal of the season.

Senior Jeremy Klespis had his shot saved nearly two minutes later by Schreiner goalie Brandon Anselmi as the Mountaineers held on for the 3-2 win.

Whan (4-10) recorded five saves and now has 373 for his collegiate career. Blake Lawson (3-4-1) played the first half for the win in goal for the home team, grabbing one save. Anselmi played the second half for Schreiner, allowing two goals on four shots faced.

The Mountaineers scored three first half goals to jump out to a 3-0 lead. Alan Aviles scored his second and third goals of the season, netting a penalty kick in the ninth minute and scoring off a pass from Eddie Martinez in the 37th minute.

Martinez found the back of the net for his first goal of the season on a pass from Gregg Gutierrez in the 23rd minute.

Hammond, the Shreveport-native, placed both of his shots on goal to lead the Gents. Aviles took five shots for Schreiner, three of which were on goal and two which found the back of the net. Centenary was outshot 14-8 for the game, including 8-5 in shots on target. However, the Gents put four shots on goal compared to three for the home team in the second half.

Centenary returns to action Sunday afternoon, Oct. 16, vs top-ranked Trinity in San Antonio.
