Men's Soccer - Fri, Oct. 14, 2011

Georgetown College men's soccer team gave some extra assistance to St. Catharine College Thursday, but still came out on top to improve to 2-1-1 in conference play.

The Tigers (3-8-1) remain in the hunt for a top four finish in the Mid-South Conference with a 3-2 win over the Patriots (1-9-1, 0-3). Maybe more importantly did something that this past year's team might not have been able to do.

"We had an own goal that kept St. Catharine in the match," said coach Derek Willis. "But what I was really pleased to see is our guys keep fighting, knowing they could win."

The 2010 season was rough physically and mentally on Willis' team. The Tigers lost player after player to season-ending injuries that cost them dearly in experience and talent.

"It was a rough season, but we learned a lot from it," Willis said. "Now with players back healthy and so much more experience across the board, we are really starting to click."

Stephen Johnson and Brian Swanson got the scoring going Thursday to put Georgetown up 2-0. The Patriots battled back for the 2-2 tie early in the second half.

Wes Jones eventually broke the stalemate with less than 10 minutes to play off a penalty kick.

Georgetown returns to action 5 pm Saturday hosting Asbury University.
