Men's Soccer - Sun, Sep. 30, 2012

Georgetown College men's soccer team battled a strong Campbellsville University team Thursday night, but much like the women's team the night before left with a narrow loss, 2-1.

The Tigers (1-8, 1-3 Mid-South Conference) were holding on defense against a CU Tiger team that took 33 shots. Campbellsville got the first break after 20-plus shots early in the second half. Drew Sin found Gustav Carlsson for the early lead.

GC roared back, scoring one of its six shots to tie the game with just less than four minutes remaining.

"Campbellsville is a very solid team," said Tiger coach Derek Willis. "I was pleased with our effort, but we have to find a way to do some more scoring and in this game get some more shots off. Sometimes it is as if we are waiting for that perfect opportunity to strike the ball. We are talented enough that we just need to be taking shots."

With a 1:47 left, CU scored the winning goal to improve to 7-3-1 and 2-1 on the season.

GC returns to action 8 pm Saturday against University of the Cumberlands in a doubleheader with the women.
