Women's Soccer - Mon, Nov. 11, 2013
Accolades continue to come following an impressive 2-1 road win Saturday in the quarterfinals for Georgetown College women's soccer team. In the final week of Mid-South Conference women's soccer player of the week honors, the Tigers have swept both categories.
Sam Amend scored two goals and earned Offensive Player of the Week, while Brittney Moshos came off the bench to stonewall CU for Defensive Player of the Week.
Moshos replaced fellow freshman Danielle Lang who had to be removed from goal following a hard collision on Campbellsville's only goal of the game. Moshos made 11 saves and kept her team in the hunt, while Amend found ways to score on Brandie Hagerman.
The junior's first score equalized the game just moments after CU took the lead.
"I think that was huge for our mental process," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Danielle had just gone down. We got behind to a team that has been in our heads the past couple of years, but to have Sam quickly tie the game back up was critical.
"It allowed us to stay with our game plan and never panic or force things. Both these players are so deserving, as is all my players after that game Saturday. It was a total team effort and translated into a 14th straight trip to the semifinals of our conference tournament."
Amend had the game winning goal with just less than two minutes remaining. Off another beautiful cross from senior Tara Joseph, Amend put a header into the back of the net.
Amend is tied for 14th in the conference in both points (20) and goals (9). She is tied for third in the conference and 39th in the NAIA with four game-winning goals this season.
Georgetown advances to play No. 5 Lindsey Wilson College 3:30 pm Thursday in Columbia, Ky.
