Men's Soccer - Sat, Sep. 23, 2017

It was a lot of control and possess in Saturday afternoon's Georgetown College men's soccer match with Kentucky Christian University. Both teams used the methodical approach to get the right shots. The Tigers (5-3) did a better job in the control, winning 2-1 in comeback fashion.

Nick Gregory took a ball near the 40, played in by Noel Roman, juked a defender for a one-on-one with the Knights (3-4) goalkeeper. The junior then steady his tempo and touch to push the winning shot in with just more than a minute remaining.

He also tied the game nearly four minutes into the second half off another pass from Roman.

"I'm very pleased to get the win against a good KCU team," Willis said. "The guys really stepped up in the second half. Noel played two excellent balls in and Nick finished them well."

Several early shots went wide or were spoiled before GC got a shot off. KCU took advantage, netting a goal off transition. Dyllin Albright slipped wide and pulled Patrick Schwarz off his line. He then sent a slow roller out of the senior's reach for the first goal of the game.

Georgetown outshot its opponents 12-10, but each team had four on frame. The Tigers are back in action 8 pm Tuesday hosting No. 12 Campbellsville University.
