Centre Advances to Semifinals

In a tough fought game from wire to wire it was Centre who pulled out the win tonight in the final Quarterfinal match of the 2009 SCAC Tournament against Colorado College 60-47.

Melanie Auguste paced the Tigers in a losing effort with 15 points and 12 rebounds. The loss ends Colorado Colleges season with a 16-9 record.

Chelsea Goodman lead the Colonels with 23 points (3-6 3pt) 7 rebounds and 3 assists. With the win Centre improves to 18-8 overall and now has a date with Oglethorpe University in the semifinals. The two teams met less than a week ago in Danville, Ky., with Oglethorpe picking up the road win 79-75. The winner of tomorrows game will advance to the SCAC Finals and a chance for an NCAA birth Sunday afternoon in Grove Gymnasium at noon.
