Women's Soccer - Fri, Nov. 15, 2013
Lindsey Wilson College women's soccer netted two goals just shy of two minutes apart in the first half of the Mid-South Conference semifinal game. It would be all the No. 2 team in the nation needed in a 3-1 win over Georgetown College.
"We fought hard and never gave up," said Tiger coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Just seeing the difference in playing Lindsey three weeks ago and playing them now, huge improvement and I couldn't be prouder of my players."
GC got a punch of its own in off a free kick. Freshman Max Zimmer netted a shot in the upper 90 of the goal from 25 yards out. This pulled the game back to a one-goal deficit early in the second half.
Unfortunately, the Blue Raiders responded less than a minute later to put the game away.
"A header off a corner recaptured the momentum for them and put us in a tough position in the second half," Castleman said. "We played with a lot of heart and pride and made it a good game. I think this is a good spring board into our spring sessions."
Georgetown has advanced to the MSC semifinals 15 of 16 seasons and 14 straight. The ladies kept the string going despite being the lowest seed they have ever been, sixth, enter postseason play.
Brittney Moshos started the semifinal game in goal and had seven saves on 10 attempts by LWC.
