Georgetown College men's soccer played its third Top 5 opponent Tuesday night when defending national champion Lindsey Wilson College came to town. The Tigers (2-11, 2-5) got behind early and could never recovered in an 8-0 loss as the No. 2 Blue Raiders (12-1, 8-1) were hungry to bounce back from a recent setback to then No. 2 University of Rio Grande.
"We knew it wasn't the most optimum situation for us to be going against such a powerful team," said Tiger coach Derek Willis. "They had nine days rest, we had two, and they were looking for a statement after losing the top spot to Rio."
LWC scored six goals in the opening 45 minutes and added two more in the second half. Phillip Sandgren netted a hat trick. Eddy Campbell had two and Tom Moody added one for the first six goals. Lebogang Moloto and Yazeed Davids notched the final two tallies.
"I've seen two or three Lindsey teams that have won the national title in my tenure here at Georgetown," Willis said. "This by far is the best I've ever seen them. They are fast, strong and technical."
The Tigers return to action 3 pm Saturday at Cumberland University (2-8-1, 0-5).
