The Georgetown College Tiger Football Team kicked off the season with a 27-17 road win over what Head Coach Bill Cronin called "dangerous" Lindenwood University.

"It's a great win to come home with and it will definitely help us prepare next week for Bacone," said Cronin. "I'm really proud of how the team performed in our first game, especially when you consider this was Lindenwood's third."

The Tiger offense was quick to get things started in the first quarter with a two-yard touchdown run by James Brown and a scoring pass to junior Brian Piper. The second quarter was more of the same when Jeff Smith scored on a quarterback sneak and placekicker Dempsey Schuleter added two field goals of 40 and 37 yards to put the Tigers up 27-7 at the half.

The Lions made some defensive adjustments at halftime and kept the Tigers scoreless in the second half. They added a field goal in the third quarter to make it 27-10 and then a touchdown pass to Steven Kennedy late in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough.

"Jeff (Smith) is more mature and made better decisions tonight than he did last season," said Cronin. "If he had made bad decisions, we would not have won this game."

Scoring by quarter:
1 2 3 4 Record
GC 14 27 27 27 (1-0)
LU 0 7 10 17 (1-2)
