Men's Soccer - Sat, Aug. 31, 2013
Georgetown College men's soccer controlled most of the second half, but two miscues led to a 4-1 win for University of Michigan-Dearborn in the opening of the Tiger Classic Friday.
Just to look at the score, it appears the Wolverines (2-0) handily took the match, but the Tigers (0-1) had more shots and more shots on frame.
"It is a tough one, but hopefully motivating to our players," said GC coach Derek Willis. "Put a couple of those early opportunities in during the second half, the game is leveled and maybe we are up.
"It is how soccer bounces sometimes, now we focus on Saturday. Not a lot of time to dwell on what happened here. We know we played well, just not the result we wanted."
The Tigers had 19 shots and eight on frame as Trent Boyd and Aldo Torres led the way with two apiece.
Torres was also responsible for the only goal for GC. He had a beautiful back flick header to equalize the game in the 26th minute of the first half. Matt Huff sent the ball in off a corner kick for the assist.
Matt McCourt got the scoring going for UMD with a goal in the 14th minute. Damjan Stamenkovick gave the Wolverines the lead for good with a goal three minutes after Torres'.
Iris Mesic and Stamenkovick put it away with goals in the second half.
Georgetown returns to action 4 pm against Huntington to finish the Tiger Classic.
