- AROUND THE SCAC -
Centre split a pair of matches at Sewanee over
the weekend, falling to the host Tigers 2-1 on Friday and defeating
Roanoke 5-1 on Saturday. Against Sewanee, Centre suffered its first
SCAC loss and had a five game winning streak snapped. The Colonels
surrendered a goal midway through the first half, another early in
the second and were unable to recover from the 2-0 hole. Leah
Oberst cut the margin to 2-1 when she scored on a Jessica McLean
assist off a penalty corner with 15:07 to play, but despite holding
a 18-14 edge in shots and a 16-7 advantage in penalty corners, it
would be the team's only score on the day. Senior goalkeeper Patty
Cowley made three saves in goal. Saturday, five different players
scored as Centre rebounded with the win over Roanoke. Despite
outshooting Roanoke 32-16, it was just before halftime before the
Colonels broke through on an unassisted goal by Erin Bacon. In the
second half, Courtney Kuiper, Barbara Parks, Chelsea Klein and
Sydney White all found the back of the cage as Centre pushed the
lead out to 5-0 before surrendering a Roanoke goal in the final
minutes. White and Alexis Hebert had assists for the Colonels, and
