Football - Thu, Sep. 6, 2012
Georgetown College football scored on its second drive of
the night and never looked back in a 34-20 victory on the inaugural game at
iHigh Field. The ensuing drive, Faulkner drove inside the Tigers' 10-yard line,
but the defense held strong and pitched a shutout for most of the game.
"We knew this was going to be a battle," said GC coach Bill
Cronin. "Our defense had some penalties that hurt us early, but the line was
solid and made the stop to keep us ahead."
The No. 4 Tigers (2-0) opened up a two-plus touchdown
edge by the break and then a score midway through the third made it 24-0. The
Eagles (1-1) were not about to lay down though. A big kickoff return into GC
territory set up a four-play, 48-yard scoring drive capped off by a Trump
Harrison's catch from Josh Hollingsworth. Winston Hines spoiled that moment of success
though by blocking the extra kick.
Faulkner had 17 second half points, but Georgetown
notched 20 of its own to keep two winning streaks alive. The Tigers have won 12
straight at home and 19 in regular season.
Zach Sowder did most of the scoring with three scores on
10 carries for 72 yards. Neal Pawsat went 19-of-26 for 238 yards and a
touchdown strike to Rob Madon. The senior had four catches to go along with the
Georgetown is back in action Sept. 15 at Lindsey Wilson
College. Kickoff is set for 8 pm Eastern Standard Time.
