For the third straight game this season, Georgetown College women's soccer team fell behind early. In the Tigers (1-1-1) season home-opener Tuesday, they got down 2-0 before rallying to force two 10-minute, golden-goal periods.
The game against Trevecca Nazarene University (1-1-2) ended in a stalemate, 2-2, after 110 minutes of soccer in the wind and rain.
"I'm glad to see my team never quits and is finding ways to come from behind," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "But we have to stop digging ourselves into these holes. We had opportunities tonight and I felt pretty good early on, I just want to see us jump out on someone and control the whole game."
In the 88th minute, Alex Harbowy hit a cross from deep in the right corner. Caitlin Williams settled the ball, one touching it into the near post just out of TNU's Bekah Headrick's reach. The goal tied the game, keeping GC's hopes of winning alive.
Tara Joseph's header in the 67th minute helped to renew the Tigers' energy. The sophomore took a beautiful cross from Anna Ayers. Ayers hit the ball from the deep right corner to the far post where Joseph ran on and finished the shot on the open net and cut the deficit in half.
Around the 80th minute a foul in the box set up a penalty kick for Georgetown. Harbowy, who has been sidelined for the first two games due to injury, sailed the shot just high.
In the two overtime sessions, both teams had their shots at ending it. However, as the rain came down in sheets during the last 20 minutes, neither team could put in the decisive goal.
The Trojans scored an early goal on a quick transition down the left sideline. Brooke Gann almost seemed as if she was passing the ball into the box. But, as Georgetown's keeper Cathie Shaver charged the ball slipped by on the wet grass and rolled into the open goal.
TNU's second goal came on a deflection from a pass in the Tiger back line. Audra Fullen stole the ball and found teammate Justine Forth who was able to bend a shot from just outside the 18 around Shaver in the near post.
