Women's Soccer - Thu, Nov. 10, 2016

Nearly two weeks removed from a high-intensity, double overtime draw where both goals were scored late in the second half, Georgetown College and Cumberland University women's soccer faced off again.

Only two goals were scored again in the Mid-South Conference semifinal game in Bowling Green, Ky. However, for the No. 24 Tigers (13-4-2) both were first half goals by No. 16 Phoenix (12-3-2), falling 2-0.

Now Georgetown must await its fate to hear about a bid to the national tournament which is released noon Monday.

After a couple of solid chances by the Tigers, CU found its way to a corner kick. Rebecca Holloway sent in a high ball that Savannah Moreland struck just right with her head for the only offense Cumberland needed.

Georgetown cranked it up and even tried taking longer shots to create action, but nothing seemed to crack CU's final line of defense. The opponents turned both shots on goal away and turned a late Tiger push into a quick transition and the decisive goal.

Elise McKinney missed a shot and then a foul was called on the Phoenix. After the restart, CU made the steal and put the ball through to Connie Awuku-Darkoh. She sent it to Olivia Chu for the goal.

Neither team was credited for a shot on goal in the second half as Cumberland played clock management.
