Women's Soccer - Thu, Sep. 27, 2012
Georgetown College women's soccer has lost just two games
this season and ironically both have been in the waning minutes of a second
overtime. The Tigers (4-2, 3-1 Mid-South Conference) suffered its first setback
every at the hands of Campbellsville University (4-4-1, 2-1). CU scored with 12
seconds left before the game would be called a draw.
"It is heartbreaking and frustrating," said GC coach Leah
Crews Castleman. "We had opportunities and didn't translate them. We have to
control what we can control and start putting in more shots."

Georgetown freshman goalie Kelsey Givens held her own as
well as the defense anchored by Becca Dietrich and Caitlin Williams. CU got
only eight shots on goal, but the final one came off a set corner kick with
time running out.
Before the game, Campbellsville was 0-19-1 against GC,
and Wednesday was the first time CU had ever held Georgetown scoreless through
"We've taken 101 shots, 54 on frame, and just scored
seven," Castleman said. "That isn't working. We have to find ways to explode
offensively. A season ago, through six games, we had 11 goals from 67 shots on
frame and 97 shots total.
"It doesn't sound like much to say we had finished five
more shots, but that is basically adding one more goal to every game, when you
think about it that way, that is huge."
Georgetown will look to break loose some of its offensive
weapons this weekend when it hosts University of the Cumberlands. Match starts
6 pm at iHigh Field.
