Men's Soccer - Thu, Sep. 20, 2012
Georgetown College men's soccer team has been looking for
the lucky breaks, the right bounces, to go along with its effort to end the
losing skid. Wednesday night in Pikeville, Ky. the flood gates opened as coach
Derek Willis predicted and the Tigers (1-6, 1-1 Mid-South Conference) have a
new streak going.
"It's just a matter of getting that first one," Willis
said. "We have been playing really well lately, and I've been pleased with the
tactical stuff. We just needed to get off the streak."
Georgetown took the 4-2 win over University of Pikeville.
The Bears (0-4, 0-2) scored six minutes in, but Taylor
Shaver leveled the match a minute later and Benjamin Aspillaga a little more
than a minute after that as GC took 2-1 led it would never relinquish.
Hunter Conner scored his second goal of his college
career and what ended up being the winning goal 16 minutes before halftime.
Early in the second half, Shaver scored his second goal and the Bears pushed
one in with less than seven minutes left to trim the deficit to two.
Now GC welcomes in University of Rio Grande Saturday on
Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 8 pm, following the women's game.
