Georgetown College women's soccer needed a late explosion from senior Chelsea Farley
to get the 3-1 win Wednesday against Mid-South Conference foe West Virginia Tech.
Farley scored the winning goal with a one minute 10 seconds remaining and added an insurance goal with just 10 seconds left. The victory improves the Tigers to 11-6 on the season and 6-2 in the MSC. For the moment GC is in second place in conference standings, a half game in front of University of the Cumberlands.
However, the Patriots (7-6-2, 5-2) play Shawnee State (8-6, 3-4). If UC wins that game, it holds the head-to-head tie breaker with Georgetown. But, the Tigers can finish no worse than third place in the standings, securing a home game in the quarterfinals of the MSC tournament Nov. 6. It is likely they will face either Shawnee or Rio Grande.
Against WVT, Tara Henderson got things going early for GC. She scored the Tigers first goal in the 10th minute of the game. The Golden Bears turned the tide a bit late in the first half and began to get shots. However, it was 1-0 GC at the break.
In the 69th minute, Tech's Carla Carvelho arched a shot over Cathie Shaver's outstretched hand to tie the game, setting up Farley and the Tigers for a dramatic finish to the regular season.
