Georgetown College women's soccer team faced a tough conference challenge Monday evening at Toyota Stadium. The Tigers (7-2-1, 2-0) battled with University of the Cumberlands. The Patriots (7-5, 1-1) were coming off a narrow 2-1 loss to the eighth-ranked team in the nation and created a lot of challenges for GC.

Following a Patriot foul, Max Zimmer Sherrard played a free ball to a wide open Jodi DeJohn for the one-touch shot in the far post upper corner. It was the play of the game and the game-winning goal in a 2-0 victory.

"UC threw a lot of stuff at us that we weren't expecting. They are well coached, but we were able to adapt and keep our composure," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Ultimately I think playing smart soccer was the game changer for us tonight. I'm really proud of the way my girls are thinking on the field."

Resilient. Georgetown College football has weathered storms early this season, but keeps coming back – highlighted by a 35-21 win Saturday over No. 19 Faulkner University.

"They just don't quit," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "This team has been through so much and are learning through it all you have to start over the next day, the next play."
The No. 14 Tigers (3-1) had their fair share of bad moments Saturday against No. 19 Faulkner University (2-2). But 14 points in one minute and nine seconds was the difference in the game. Tied 21-21 following a fumble on the previous possession as J.J. Jude tried to stretch for extra yards, Cronin went right back to the senior.

Jude caught a bubble screen and took it 44 yards to put GC in business late in the fourth quarter. The next play Kyle Longworth rushed for 11 yards and Zach Harris finished it off with a nine-yard touchdown run.
