Men's Soccer - Wed, Oct. 12, 2016

Georgetown College men's soccer welcomed nearby Midway University for a first ever showdown between the teams as the Eagles just added males to the general enrollment population this year. It could be a budding rivalry for the NAIA schools just 15 minutes apart. The Tigers (4-6-3) took the series opener in dramatic fashion. They got behind early before rallying for a 2-1 win at Toyota Stadium.

"I really proud of the guys to fight back after starting slow and giving up a sloppy goal," said GC coach Derek Willis. "After that goal we really controlled the majority of the game and were unlucky to only come away with two goals."

Nick Gregory netted his ninth goal and second game winner early in the second half off a beautiful cross from Jordan Murdoch.

Murdoch saw extended minutes after Noah Mills suffered an injury during the first half and took advantage of it. He helped to push the tempo up top and found Gregory for the game winner and nearly assisted on another goal late in the first half off a tremendous play on the ball. The junior sent a back heel flick out to Kyle Settle who ripped a shot. The Eagles' (4-5-1) Harry Kirwan just got in front of it for the block and ricochet out of bounds.

Midway opened the scoring in the 15th minute when Brad Wilson sent a passing shot from a through ball into the back of the net. MU attempted to break the game open with rapid fire action over the next 14 minutes.

However, this opened the door for the Tigers on a quick transition to get the equalizer. Cole Dewey sent a ball into the box for JT Stephens who blasted the ball past Christian Neira.

Georgetown returns to action 8 pm EST at Lindsey Wilson College.
