Centenary Ladies and Gents Soccer takes to the road for their first Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference road trip Friday and Sunday, September 14 and 16. It will be the first road games overall for the Ladies (5-0, 3-0 SCAC) on the season. The Gents are 1-3-1 overall and 0-2-1 in conference play.
Friday's doubleheader at Schreiner begins at 2 p.m., while Sunday's action at Trinity is to begin at noon. Both doubleheaders feature the Gents playing, followed by the Ladies.
Hot Start for Montes
Junior Kyra Montes is off to a fast start for the Ladies with a goal in all five games and seven goals overall. She also tallied her first collegiate hat trick in Centenary's 3-2 (OT) win against Schreiner September 9 and was named the United Soccer Coaches Player of the Week.
In fact, Montes has more goals this season than 195 NCAA Division III women's programs.
In the season record book for the NCAA Division III era of Ladies soccer, Montes is third in goals scored (seven) and game-winning goals (three), fourth with four assists (tied with classmate Olivia Jackson), and sixth with 18 points.
Nationally, her three game-winning goals rank second, her 18 points are fifth, and her seven goals is sixth.
Among the Conference Leaders
The Gents have a history of having goalies among the SCAC leaders – Rylan Whan from 2013-16 and Kaleb Behm in 2017. This season is no different for freshman Sami Borchalli.
Borchalli leads the conference and is 13th in the nation with 34 saves, more than double higher than his nearest competitor.
Centenary returns to southern Texas next weekend when it takes on Southwestern on Friday, September 21. The Ladies and Gents complete the regular season series with Texas Lutheran on Sunday, September 23.
