Georgetown College women's soccer is chomping at the bit to play a regular season game. This past week's scheduled season opener was canceled when Thomas More decided to drop the competition. But, the first home-opener Wednesday night seemed to be a go, until Mother Nature altered the plans.
"It's very frustrating," said Tiger coach Leah Crews Castleman. "But it is about the safety of the players and not the overwhelming desire to play a game. I liked what we showed in what we did get in and it would have been amazing to see how this game played out."
Indiana Wesleyan University is consistently a Top 25 team. This year the Wildcats are young and so a bit unproven despite touting a 4-0 record. They recently won a double overtime game with Campbellsville University and Georgetown was eager to see how it would fair.
It was a 0-0 tie when lightning strikes caused the first 30-minute delay 17 minutes into the first half. The light show continued with one of the final glimpses of the deadly streak coming at 6:30. At that time a decision had to be made and waiting out another 30-minutes was not an option.
"We've worked hard in the preseason and mentally you prepare to play," Castleman said. "It is difficult when you can't, but we move on and focus on Saturday's home game."
