Women's Soccer - Sun, Sep. 3, 2017

One of the toughest things in sports is to lose a difficult game and have to rebound without any practice time between. Georgetown College women's soccer did just that this past weekend. Originally they were to play Friday and Sunday, but weather pushed Friday's game to early Saturday. Meaning the Tigers (3-1) had roughly 24 hours to travel to a new town, settle in and play noon on Sunday.

Despite trailing at one point, GC rallied for the 3-2 win.

Saturday's defeat could have flattened the team's mood and good vibes of the solid start it had in its first two wins – both by shutouts. However, the veteran laden team did not let it alter their approach against University of South Carolina – Beaufort.

Bethany Massey scored twice in the second half. Her first tied the game and second was the game-winner. Georgetown jumped out to an early lead after Jodi DeJohn scored off a rebound. The Sand Shards (2-2) responded with two quick goals in the first six minutes of the second half.

"Unbelievable heart from our girls. We didn't play well yesterday, but we learned from our mistakes and overcame the ego blow to come back and play our game today," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Even after USCB put in two quick ones, we stayed mentally tough and finished it. I am so proud of our guts and composure. We had a lot of growth this weekend that will help us down the stretch."

Georgetown is back in action 6 pm Saturday against No. 14 Martin Methodist.
