Men's Soccer - Sun, Oct. 7, 2012
Cedarville University (10-1-1) scored just more than 11
minutes into the match Saturday against the Tigers (2-10) for all the offense
it needed. The Yellow Jackets added four more for good measure, including two
late in the first half to break the game open.
"It was definitely a tough loss after coming off such a
good trip Thursday," said Georgetown College coach Derek Willis. "But, we knew
this would be a test for us. This is an NCAA Division II program that is having
a lot of success this season."
The Tigers allowed seven goals to the No. 2 team in the
NAIA and fellow Mid-South Conference foe University of Rio Grande not more than
two weeks ago.
"We are seeing progress and it also speaks volumes to
what I'm always saying about how difficult our league is," Willis said. "To
jump up a level and play that well against an NCAA team shows that we are
getting to where we need to be. We pick up the wins I know we can in the coming
weeks, we could be a very dangerous postseason team."
The youthful bunch, starting five or six freshmen and
sophomores on a regular basis, has six games remaining and spanning almost
three weeks. Next up is a showdown with pernennail conference and national
power Lindsey Wilson College Tuesday. Kickoff is set for 7 pm at Toyota Stadium
on iHigh Field.
