Georgetown College football struggled on the road, but behind a late rally had a chance to pick up the win in Babson Park, Fla.
The Tigers (0-1) scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, but came up short 27-20 to Webber International University.
Freshman Patrick Dougherty got the rally going with a pick he returned for a touchdown to pull GC back to within 14, 27-13 midway through the fourth quarter. Then a solid drive was capped off by a Kaelin Ammon's pass to Coty Minnis for a touchdown. But with just 55 seconds remaining, it was too little too late as the Crusaders (2-0) got the onsides kick.
The Tigers scored a field goal in the second quarter to break the scoreless tie, but Webber responded with a touchdown drive for the 7-3 lead. Before halftime, the Crusaders added another touchdown for a 14-3 advantage heading into the lockerroom.
The Tigers gave up another touchdown, digging a huge hole, before another GC field goal trimmed it to a 15-point deficit, 21-6. Webber answered that with a touchdown, but missed the extra point for a 27-6 lead.
The Tigers (0-1) have a week off before facing rival University of Cumberlands on the road on Sept. 18. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.
