Women's Soccer - Sat, Nov. 5, 2011
Georgetown College women's soccer punched it's ticket to
the semifinals of the Mid-South Conference tournament with a 2-0 win Friday
over University of Rio Grande.
The Tigers (12-5-2) had to weather some soggy field
conditions and a scoring drought before Lauren Brooks' deep shot arched over
the goalie with just more than five minutes remaining. Anna Ayers then juked a
pair of defenders for the cushion goal.
"In the postseason a win is a win," said Tiger coach Leah
Crews Castleman. "We battled and responded in the second half, with which I'm
pleased. When you are taking a lot of shots and not seeing one go in it can
become a mental thing to try to get the score. But, we didn't push the panic
button and Lauren had been making nice runs all day out of the back. She saw
the space again and unloaded the shot. It was a good win."
GC it's the road now to Rio Grande where the remainder of
the men's and women's tournament will be played. The Tigers will play the
winner of St. Catharine at Campbellsville to be played 7 p.m. Saturday.
