  • The Central Christian College women’s soccer team was locked in a defensive stalemate with Sterling College for nearly 90 full minutes Tuesday, but came up short against the Warriors 1-0.
    The Tigers held off a strong Sterling attack for the entire first half, as the Warriors had nine shots to Central Christian’s one. CCC goalkeeper Twila Smedley and the defense was up to the task, however, as Sterling couldn’t make a shot go in for the 45 minute period.
    The Warriors picked up the pace in the second half, as they took an incredible 17 shots on Central Christian, but, again, couldn’t find the net until the 81st minute, when Estefania Flores finally put a shot past Smedley in what would be the eventual game-winner.
    Siarra Quintana and Haley McMath led the Tiger offense with two shots, while Krystina Powell, Sarah Aroum and Nikki Neal all had one. Powell and Quintana had the only two Tiger shots on goal.
    Smedley made eight saves in goal for Central Christian.
    The Tigers are back on the pitch Saturday, as they will travel just a few miles north to Lindsborg for a showdown with the Bethany Swedes. Game time is at  5 p.m.
