The Centre women's soccer team got off to a rough start on its Texas road trip, falling 1-0 to Austin College on an early penalty kick Friday in Sherman, Tex.
After an Austin player was taken down in the box in the 38th minute, Kelsey D'Amore converted the ensuing penalty kick for the only score of the game.
Centre and Austin each took 10 shots in the contest. Austin goalkeeper Maya Warnock made seven saves in the shutout victory while Centre's Kelli Lenz (Louisville, Ky.) had one in the loss.
