Football - Sat, Nov. 5, 2011
For the second straight season, Georgetown College's
football team went undefeated in Mid-South Conference divisional play. It is
also a game away from a perfect regular season, not been done since 2006. The
Tigers (9-0, 5-0) are MSC East Champions following a 56-27 win over Lindsey
Wilson (6-3, 2-2) Saturday at Toyota Stadium on Senior Day.
They return to action next weekend at Belhaven looking to
No. 4 Georgetown opened with a first-drive touchdown when
Neal Pawsat hit a wide open Adam Schmitz on a 20-yard route. Lindsey would tie
it on a blocked field goal attempt and then twice more pulled within a score in
the first half, before the Tigers took over.
Another Pawsat to Schmitz play with 11 seconds before
half made it 35-20 and that is as close as the Blue Raiders would get again.
GC's defense flexed its muscle, forcing a fumble on LWC's
first possession of the final 30 minutes. Brandon Lawson made the hit and
recovered the loose ball, setting up a one-play, 27-yard score - Pawsat to Rob
Madon - and a 42-20 advantage. Schmitz scored for the third time, this one on
the ground, as the third quarter expired. The Tigers led 49-20 at that point.
Pawsat finished 24-of-36 with 415 yards and six passing
touchdowns and no interceptions. Chris Gohman hauled in four catches for 116
yards and a score, Madon had four catches for 101 yards and a score, and
Schmitz had six catches for 82 yards and two scores. The sophomore finished
with 107 all-purpose yards and three scores with six rushes for 25 yards and a
GC's defense allowed just 272 yards of offense. The
Tigers controlled the game, running 71 plays for 523 yards.
