Women's Soccer - Mon, Aug. 28, 2017

Georgetown College women's soccer is finding the gas button early and not decelerating. Some in the past, the Tigers (2-0) have relied on the stingy defense to hold up one or two scores. Not through two games in 2017.

The defense is still stellar – two shutouts. However, the offense has been clicking as well. Lindsey Dunn got it rolling Monday against visiting Freed-Hardeman University. The senior netted a rebounding ball started in motion by Skye Zimmer. Right place. Right time. Perfect finish.

Freshman Kelsey Castle had a similar moment late in the game – capping off the 4-0 win over the Lions (0-1).

"I am pleased with the result, but the process still needs a lot of refinement," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "It is still early and the girls are working hard every day to improve and put the pieces together.

"We are looking forward to a big test this coming Friday."

The Tigers hit the road for a pair of games down south. They start in Savannah, Ga. against Savannah College of Art and Design. They follow that up with a trip to Bluffton, SC to play University of South Carolina – Beaufort.

Bethany Massey netted her first goal of the season with the first cushion score. Her corner kick drew a foul in the box, leading to a penalty kick. The junior calmly finished it, and Georgetown led 2-0.

She assisted Dunn on her second goal, sliding it through as Dunn broke free for one-on-one with FHU's goalie Erin Douglas.

"It was a perfect night," Dunn said. "I'm glad that the weather held off and so many people could come out.

"We capitalized when it mattered, and I'm excited for the season. We have little things to work on, but it will only continue to go up from here. Couldn't imagine a more perfect first home game of my last season at Georgetown."
