Aaron Stover scored two golden goals this past week, helping the Tigers to a 2-0 record for the week. For his efforts he earned the Mid-South Conference Offensive Player of the Week award.
The sophomore from Versailles, Ky. started with a goal in double overtime against Ohio Christian and finished with a huge overtime goal against league foe Cumberland University. The win over CU put GC into a tie with the head-to-head lead for sixth with the Bulldogs. Stover has five total goals on the season.
Bounces have not always gone the Tigers way in recent history, but this year's team is forging a new tradition. GC has played four overtime games and has a 2-1-1 record. The team lost the first one, tied the second and have won the most recent two.
"This team doesn't quit or hang its head," said Tiger coach Derek Willis. "It is exciting in ways that you never feel out of a game, but we've also felt well in control of games this season as well."
Georgetown has five wins with the chance to finish 500 on the year. The Tigers have won a combine six games in the past two seasons.
"It was school of hard knocks the past couple of years, but it has made these guys much stronger and resilient," Willis said. "This is the first time in my memory that we've had two player of the week honorees. It is just nice to be on the scene again."
Matthew Oster was the defensive player of the week on Sept. 16.
