SHREVEPORT, La. - The Ladies were able to cut a 13-point first quarter deficit to two at halftime, but the Mountaineers used hot shooting from beyond the arc for the win as Centenary (6-7, 1-2 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference) fell to Schreiner (3-8, 1-0 SCAC) 73-63 Friday night, January 8, in the Gold Dome.

Schreiner finished the game 10-for-23 from behind the arc, including 4-for-6 from Kelsie Jackson. Jackson led the Mountaineers with scoring with 15 points and a team best eight rebounds.

The Ladies fell behind 21-8 after the first quarter, but allowed no points to the visitors in the first four minutes of the second quarter. Centenary also closed out the half on an 8-2 run to pull within 29-27 at break. Senior Rebecca Thompson made a layup to start the spurt on a dump-down pass from freshman Savanah Doty. After a defensive stop, freshman Erin Temple hit Doty for a fastbreak triple to cut the deficit to three. Sophomore Samantha Lyons split from the line to cut the deficit to two, but Schreiner’s Chris Jones answered with a jumper.

Lyons closed out the half with a pair from the line.

The Maroon and White finished the game with more free throws made (28) than Schreiner attempted (23), but Centenary only hit 15-of-47 (31.9 percent) from the floor in the game.

Schreiner pushed the lead to as much as 17 in the second half, but Centenary pulled within 13 at the end of the quarter and cut the deficit to six in the fourth.  Down 63-51, junior Linda Gomez Gil split from the line. Doty hit a triple and Morris hit a pair from the line. Morris finished the game with 21 points, including a 7-for-13 mark from the line.

Schreiner salted the game away by making 6-of-10 from the line to end the game.

Leading 14-8 in the first, the visitors scored the final seven points of the quarter to push the lead to double-digits. Kendall Dyal made a layup and Jackson hit a triple after a pair of offensive boards. Sabriyyah Fennell ended the quarter with a layup.

The Mountaineers outscored Centenary 22-7 in the first eight minutes of the second half to take a 51-34 advantage, their largest of the game. Schreiner hit 4-of-6 from downtown during that stretch.

Centenary returns to action Sunday, January 10, when it hosts Trinity. Game time is set for 2 p.m.
