Georgetown College remained perfect at home
with a shutout win over Pikeville College on Thursday,
The Tigers scored on their second possession of the game when Mike Lewis connected to Chris Gohman for a 34-yard touchdown play. Georgetown never looked back, improving to 6-3 on the season and 3-2 in the Mid-South Conference East division.
Head Coach Bill Cronin was happy to have the opportunity to ease a couple of key players who had been on his injured list back onto the field, including Alex Matthews, who came in at quarterback after being out with an injury that occurred in the second game of the year.
"It was good to see Alex back in for some healthy minutes," said Cronin. "We had an opportunity to get some valuable game time for young and injured players."
Lewis finished the night 14 of 19 for 199 passing yards and three touchdowns while Matthews was 8 of 12 in the air and 86 yards.
Defensively, the Bears' Anson Cunningham led both teams with 15 tackles, six solo. Georgetown was led by two freshmen, Jake Conner who tallied eight total tackles and Andrew Jones who added six, including two for a loss of nine yards.
The Tigers will host top-ten Lambuth on Nov. 7. Kickoff is set for 1:00 and Georgetown will celebrate senior day at Toyota Stadium.
