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."

GC took 10 of its 14 shots on frame, but CU goalie and 2010 MSC Freshman of the Year and 2011 MSC Honorable Mention Brandie Hagerman stonewalled the team.

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 regulation.

"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.
