Women's Soccer - Thu, Nov. 11, 2010
Georgetown College women's soccer is right back where it has wanted to be for a year. The Tigers (13-6) defeated University of the Cumberlands Wednesday in the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference Tournament, 4-2, getting a rematch with Lindsey Wilson College in the finals.
A season ago, GC needed a shootout to get to the finals and then took the national-power Blue Raiders to a shootout as well. However, the Tigers came up just short in its upset bid.
Since that loss on Nov. 13, the team has been on a mission to get another shot at LWC.
The road back meant beating the Patriots, a team that handed them a 4-3 loss in the regular season. Sophomore Alex Harbowy helped the Tigers to a quick 2-0 lead. She netted both goals inside a minute just a little more than 12 minutes into the game.
However, Cumberlands would not go quietly. Late in the first half, the Patriots found scored to trim the deficit to 2-1 at the break.
Harbowy would again give GC a two-goal advantage. In the 62nd minute she scored for a 3-1 advantage. UC struck again to put itself down one, but freshman Tara Joseph gave the Tigers a two-goal cushion once again in the 88th minute to secure the victory and the rematch with Lindsey.
Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. Thursday. Follow the action live on www.ihigh.com/redstorm.
