Patrick Dougherty had six tackles, five for loss with three sacks, leading the No. 3 Tiger defense in yet another solid game this past Saturday. For his efforts the junior has been named Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week, following teammate Josh Downing.
This is Dougherty's first weekly honor as the stingy defense continues to hold opponents to an under two touchdown average. Georgetown College also forced Lindsey Wilson College into -3 yards rushing after going for 309 yards the week before against University of Pikeville.
"When you stop someone's running attack you really change the complexity of the game," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "I thought Pat had a great game. Five tackles for loss with three sacks really helped us to set the tone and shut down the run."
Georgetown returns to action 1:30 pm Saturday against Kentucky Christian University (2-1). The Knights are coming off a 39-0 loss to NCAA foe University of Northern Alabama. Catch all the action live at Toyota Stadium on iHigh Field or on the internet at www.ihigh.com/georgetowncollege.
