Georgetown College women's soccer has suffered five losses this season - three in overtime, two of which were double overtime. The other two regulation setbacks have come to opponents in the Top 25 or receiving votes.
"We've played a tough schedule, but I hope we are learning the lessons we need to so that when it counts we are translating them into wins," said Tiger coach Leah Crews Castleman. "This team has been so solid though, and that is something that is really good to see. With the kind of losses that we are taking, it could be easy to get frustrated in a negative way.
"They are too competitive for that. They are taking their frustrating and training harder and getting ready for the next match."
GC (7-5) was dealt its third overtime defeat Wednesday night against non-conference foe Bethel University. The Wildcats (8-4) erased an early 1-0 deficit to tie the match up as time expired in the first half. The second 45 minutes was a stalemate. Then just shy of five minutes into the first overtime, BU found the back of the net for the winner.
Alex Harbowy bent it like Beckham for the Tigers to open the game. GC continued to control the game until a late foul allowed Bethel to arch a shot just out of reach of Kelsey Givens. Then the Wildcats used a quick transition to split defenders and score the winning goal one on one in the overtime period.
Georgetown returns to action 6 pm next Wednesday in its final Mid-South Conference match and senior night against St. Catharine College. Right now there is a bottle neck from two through five in the conference standings. Cumberland University sits in second with a 5-1 mark, but has three games remaining. St. Catharine and Campbellsville University have two games left and are both 5-2. GC is 5-3 with one league game left.
