Men's Soccer - Sat, Sep. 21, 2013
Georgetown College men's soccer struggled once again in finding the back of the net and converting on opportunities. In Saturday's match against Cincinnati Christian, the Tigers (1-5) outshot their opponent 27-17 and 16-10 on frame. However, the team walked away with a tough 5-3 loss.
"It is hard, but hopefully we learn from these lessons," said GC coach Derek Willis. "When you control that much and win the battles that much, we ought to be getting the results. We have to get over this hump."
Taylor Shaver helped the Tigers to a quick 1-0 lead, but Christian responded with four of the next five goals to secure the win.
The Eagles held a 3-2 lead heading into the break and scored the winning goal in the first six minutes of the second half. After CCU took a 2-1 lead, Shaver responded back to level the match on an unassisted goal in the 24th minute. Tyler Moen and Nick Smith then scored to regain the advantage and put up a two-goal cushion.
In the 61st minute, Aaron Stover found the back of the net to pull Georgetown within one. However, the Eagles found the coffin-sealing goal in the 79th minute from Moen.
"It is frustrating, but the key will be letting this go," Willis said. "Learn from it and move on because we got our conference schedule to focus on and Campbellsville coming to town."
The CU Tigers come to Georgetown for an 8 pm battle Wednesday at Toyota Stadium.
