Men's Soccer - Mon, Oct. 18, 2010
Georgetown College men's soccer team picked up its third win of the season and second inside the conference Monday in Georgetown.
The Tigers (3-11, 2-4 Mid-South Conference) jumped out to an early two goal lead before defeating Pikeville, 3-1. The Bears (1-11-1, 0-7) cut the deficit in half late in the final 45 minutes, but got no closer.
Despite taking 23 shots in the first half, GC failed to find the back of the net. However, Taylor Shaver broke the tie just shy of three minutes into the final half. The freshman hit a volley shot for a 1-0 lead.
Michael Martin added the insurance goal in the 74th minute off a pass from Brian Swanson. Swanson sent a through ball, splitting two Bear defenders, to a charging Martin, who connected on a crossing shot for the 2-0 advantage.
Pikeville made it interesting almost five minutes later when David Wright scored on a one-on-one with GC keeper Logan Willoughby. But Wes Jones helped the Tigers back to a two-goal lead with a driving shot with six seconds left on the clock.
Georgetown returns to action Thursday when it travels to Campbellsville.
