Coming off a less than impressive win, Georgetown College women's soccer just wanted to get back on the field again. The Tigers (3-1, 2-0 Mid-South Conference) were not happy with the final tally against Shawnee State University this past Saturday. They had to wait more than 72 hours to get those thoughts out of their minds.
"It was almost as if we were back to win we just wanted to play our first game of the season," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We were happy with the win Saturday, but we knew we could do better. This team is highly competitive and full of perfectionists. That combination makes it difficult to wait more than three days to get a bad experience out of the system."
A trip to Pikeville, Ky. cleared everything up though, as the Tigers scored twice in the second half for another 2-0 road victory over University of Pikeville (2-2, 0-1). Bea Cameron broke up the scoreless affair five minutes out of the halftime locker room with her second goal of the season. Alessandra Jansen found the back of the net midway through the second half for the insurance goal.
"I was really pleased with our offensive attack tonight," Castleman said. "We made great decisions and were smart about what we wanted to do.
"Pikeville is a dangerous team. The Bears have a solid goalie in Chelsea Schulte. I was really pleased to see despite not scoring in the first half, our team didn't try to press and force the action. They knew the goals would come if they kept playing their game."
GC pitched its third straight shutout and the defense has allowed only two goals in four games. The Tigers return to action 6 pm Saturday hosting University of Rio Grande at iHigh Field on Homecoming.
