Men's Soccer - Sun, Sep. 30, 2012
Fueled behind a narrow loss to one the Mid-South
Conference's top four teams, Georgetown College men's soccer came out ready to
play against another of those squads in the University of the Cumberlands
(5-1-1, 3-1 MSC). The Tigers (1-9, 1-4) pushed the attack and had a couple of
early chances, but a finish off an unlucky bounce led the Patriots to the early
advantage and eventual 3-0 win.
"I felt we played really well, controlled the match a lot
and had good opportunities, but a bounce here and there is the difference sometimes,"
said GC coach Derek Willis.
Tiger goalie Stefan Iverson made the initial save off a
great shot by the Patriots. The rebound however went right to a UC player and
an easy goal on the defenseless net. That goal was just shy of 10 minutes into
action and came off the heels of a shot that hit the post by Tyler Whitehouse.
The Patriots would not score again until a confusing play
midway through the second half. Again GC's attack was thwarted and UC pushed
for a cross from the left sideline. A diving Pedro Antonelli knocked the ball
into the back of the net. The center official running behind the play called it
a goal. The right side line official called into question where Antonelli used
his hand instead of his head. The two conferred and the goal stood.
Antonelli added another cushion goal for good measure
with just less than six minutes remaining.
GC returns to action 3 pm Thursday at Bluefield College (4-6,
