Women's Soccer - Wed, Oct. 2, 2013
Georgetown College women's soccer gutted one out Wednesday night in a big Mid-South Conference match. The Tigers (3-3-1, 2-2 MSC) dominated the first half against Shawnee State (7-3, 1-3) but came up empty. Then in a half where they managed just a handful of chances, Sam Amend finally got the offense on the board.
The junior netted a one-on-one opportunity for an early lead and Emily McLellen added the insurance in the 2-0 win on iHigh.com Field. This puts the Tigers in a three-way tie for fourth place with five more conference matches to play.
"This was a good win for us," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We had so many opportunities in the first half. I knew if we could just keep knocking on the door it would eventually go in. Sam had a couple of looks early that she just couldn't get past their keeper. But she did exactly what you need to do and didn't panic with her passing shot giving us the lead.
"Once the barrier was broken, they relaxed even more and that was a beautiful goal by Emily."
Georgetown returns to action 2 pm Friday at St. Catharine College, which is also currently 2-2 in the conference.
