Georgetown College took Mount Vernon Nazarene to double overtime and picked up a draw this past week. Danielle Lang was solid in goal for the Tigers in her first full game. The freshman from Amelia, Ohio had 12 saves and allowed just one goal in 110 minutes.
"She was outstanding back there for us Tuesday," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Danielle kept us in it until we could tie it and then stonewalled MVNU to keep it that way."
For her efforts, Lang has been named Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week. This is her first time winning this award.
"This is well deserved," Castleman said. "Danielle has taken very well to the college game and plays so well in the net for us."
In two regular season games, the first of which did not go into the official books because of storms that ended the game seven minutes shy of it being a countable contest, Lang has allowed just one goal.
The Tigers played 63 minutes against Union and were leading 1-0 to that point. Lang had roughly eight saves to that point in the match for 20 saves this season in 173 minutes between the posts.
"She is an unbelievable keeper and will be really important for us going forward," Castleman, a former goalie herself, said. "We have a strong line in front of her and that helps to push the attack on quick transitions."
