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

Logan Blankenship did not waste an opportunity. The sophomore got his first collegiate start and scored twice in a 3-1 win for the Georgetown College men's soccer team. The Tigers (1-0) defeated Freed-Hardeman University (0-1) Monday evening at Toyota Stadium.

He slipped through a pair of defenders off a beautiful set up from Jacob Curry, found himself one-on-one with the goalie and netted the shot low.

For a long time that appeared to be the game-winner. However, a foul in the box in the 60th minute gave the Lions life. Andrij Sawczuk scored past a diving Patrick Schwartz – who had a brilliant night with three saves including one off a rebound that appeared to be going in for sure as another tying goal.

JT Stephens responded to Sawczuk goal, heading in a Nick Gregory corner kick as the game-winner.

Blankenship finished it off with a through ball set up from Noel Roman.

"Overall I'm pleased with the performance today," said GC coach Derek Willis. "We showed a lot of grit to pull out a win. Really excited for Logan to get his first start and two goals along with it.

"Our defensive backs along with Patrick played a great game and were unfortunate to concede a penalty to not get a shutout."

The Tigers return to action this weekend in the Centre College Invitational. They played the Pioneers Friday evening and Bluffton University on Saturday.
