Centenary Makes up 8-Goal Deficit to Down Wesley

Centenary tied the game for the second time when Pinkerton picked up a loose ball off an initial shot by Bay and deposited it in goal to tie the score at 12.

After solid action leading up the final ten minutes of the game, the Cyclones took their first lead of the game at the 10:45 mark when Bruce deked around a defender, centering herself in front of goal before unleashing the shot that became the go ahead goal.

The Cyclones, outshooting the Wolverines 23-3 in the second half, had momentum, but still only possessed a one goal lead. With over ten minutes remaining, it seemed certain Centenary would need to score again to ensure the win.

The final ten minutes were eventful, yet yielded zero goals as Centenary goalie, junior Danielle Trucksess (Collingswood, N.J./Collingswood) made the most important of her six saves in the waning minutes of the game to help the Cyclones preserve the one goal win.

While the offensive explosion after falling behind 8-0 grabs the most attention, the ability of the Cyclones to shut down Wesley nearly completely in the second half that sealed the win. Senior Chelsea Gummerson (Newton, N.J./Kittatinny) caused four turnovers and snatched four ground balls while Bay, Pinkerton and Balfour each helped with three caused turnovers leading to the fact Wesley turned the ball over 17 times, while Centenary outshot the Wolverines 27-4 in the second half.

Centenary improves to 4-0 on the season with the win and will open CSAC play on Monday, March 19th when the Cyclones travel to Allentown, Pa. to take on the Cedar Crest Falcons at 4:00 pm.
