Shreveport. – The Centenary men's soccer team looks for its fourth-straight victory Friday as the Gents open Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference play against the Johnson and Wales Wildcats in a match set for 7 p.m. at Mayo Field.
The Gents (4-2) have won three in a row, all shutouts, and 4-0 at home.

All four Centenary victories this season have been shutouts and the Gents have outscored the opposition 15-8 on the season.
Centenary and Johnson and Wales previously met in Denver back on Sept. 15 with the Wildcats earning a 3-1 comeback victory over the Maroon and White. Centenary held a 1-0 lead at the half until Johnson and Wales erupted for three goals in the final 18 minutes of the game, two coming on a free kick and a penalty kick. The Wildcats (1-7-1) have not won a game since then while the Gents have not lost since then not have they allowed a goal.
Centenary's Diego Hernandez was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Men's Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, it was announced by the league office on Monday.
