Georgetown College women's soccer left nothing to chance against NCAA Division II Kentucky Wesleyan Wednesday night. The Tigers (1-1) have been eager to play real games and after a double overtime loss in the season opener, they were hungry for a win. They got it while also pitching their first shutout, 2-0, on the road.
"I knew if we play our game we could get the result we wanted," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Alex (Harbowy) got us going early, which I think helped relax us. As it happened several times this past season, if you keep putting up shots and don't see one go in you get tighter and try harder. Within the first 15 minutes, Alex scored off an assist from Bea Cameron and the rest was history."
"To have more than 50 percent of your shots on frame and 25 percent of those go in is great," Castleman said. "This team is playing as if we've had four or five matches, so it is scary to think we have just played two. If we continue to build on this and find a way to peak at the right time, we are going to be dangerous down the stretch."
The Panthers (0-3) took 22 shots, eight on frame. GC freshman goalie Kelsey Givens had five saves to give her 13 for the season and got her first shutout.
Georgetown returns to action 2 pm Saturday at iHigh Field against Mid-South Conference opponent Shawnee State University. This will be a doubleheader with the men who play SSU at 4 pm.
