Women's Soccer - Mon, Sep. 18, 2017

Georgetown College women's soccer played an afternoon affair against former Mid-South Conference foe West Virginia Tech. The Tigers (5-2) scored in the first 10 minutes and made it stand in the 1-0 win.

Elise McKinney took a slip from Jodi DeJohn and netted the winner in top right corner.

Megan Martin pitched her first blank sheet as the lone keeper for 90 minutes. She has a few shared shutouts earlier in the season with Sarah Slusher.

"I don't think the score was indicative of the match as we had a lot of near misses on the offensive end where we didn't capitalize on our chances," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "However, that is the nature of the game. I'm proud of the girls for toughing it out despite the heat and getting the win."

Georgetown's speed caught the Golden Bears (4-3) off balance but WVT's goalie Martha Reyna did a nice job in deflecting or shutting down the angles to keep the Tigers from blowing the game open.

GC dominated pace of play as well as time of possession, but the Golden Bears did get a few cracks that forced Martin to make diving saves. She had two diving saves and a few routine stops to make McKinney's goal stand.

The Tigers are back in action 7 pm Wednesday at Grace College in Winona Lake, Ind.
