Ladies suffer second straight loss
Sunday, September 30, 2012

BOSSIER CITY, La. – Hoping to bounce back from a loss to the nation’s top team Friday night, Centenary dropped its third straight Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference women’s soccer contest Sunday, 3-0, to Southwestern at Messmer Stadium.

The game was moved from Centenary’s Mayo Field because of weather and field conditions. The Ladies dropped to 3-4-1 and 0-3 in SCAC play, losing two straight for the first time this season. Southwestern jumped to 4-8 and 2-2 in league play.

The Ladies return to the field Oct. 5 at the University of Dallas at 4 p.m. Centenary has nearly a month off from home play, hosting Austin College in a rematch Oct. 20.

Hannah Neil started the game’s scoring in the 17th minute with a soft floater over the reach of Centenary’s Brittaney Dunn, who gathered five saves. Allie Dillon and Carol Bentley set up Paige Duggins at the 26-minute mark, knocking in a pass from five yards on the right side before Chelsea Letzer capped the 3-0 margin 58  minutes later.

Letzer took advantage of an empty net as Dunn chased down a loose ball, eventually bouncing to Letzer, who drilled a shot from 30 yards.

Duggins and Lindsay Jakszta led all players with four shots apiece. Three of Duggins four shots were on goal. Centenary managed just five shots in the contest after only one Friday night against No. 1 Trinity.

Amanda Atwell had the Ladies only shot on goal.
