Men's Soccer - Wed, Sep. 12, 2012
Georgetown College men's soccer team had another tough
loss Tuesday at Mount Vernon Nazarene. The Tigers (0-5) allowed a goal in the 37th
minute and could never recover.
"It is hard when you are playing behind and being so
young as well," said GC coach Derek Willis. "We had some really good looks and
couldn't finish. It will happen though, we just have to get one going our way
and then we really feel it can be a snowball effect for our players."
MVN had six shots on goal to GC's three. Brian Petak hit
Marc Cannon eight minutes before halftime for the only goal the team needed.
Stefan Iverson had four saves on the day, helping to keep
the Tigers in the game.
"It felt this was the best game we've played, but when things
are bouncing against you we have to find ways to get the win," Willis said. "It
will happen. We have a really good team and once we get that first win I think
a lot of people will see the difference."
The Tigers return to action 4 pm Saturday against
Mid-South Conference opponent Shawnee State University. The Bears also played
MVN earlier this season and lost 3-1.
"This will be our first conference game and it will be at
home. The women play before us so I think there is a lot of energy and
excitement surrounding this doubleheader," Willis said.
