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."
Georgetown College women's soccer's streak continued Friday evening against Asbury University. The Tigers (6-2-1) have won five straight and scored 15 of their 20 goals in that span. Abby Sobolewski scored the only goal needed in the 1-0 win over the Eagles (4-3-1) in Wilmore, Ky.
"I'm proud of a great result verse a crosstown rival. They are a very athletic team who will surprise some people this year," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "It's always hard to play on the road, in a rival environment, and I'm pleased with the way we stepped up and executed our game plan."
In the 25th minute, Bethany Massey took a corner kick that set up the goal. Georgetown's strong defense made it stand, while the offense kept cranking shots.
Georgetown College women's soccer hit the road for a tough trip to Montgomery, W.Va. The Tigers (5-2-1) did battle with former Mid-South Conference foe West Virginia University Institute of Technology. The Golden Bears made it interesting, but GC escaped with a solid victory – 2-1.
"It was a hard fought battle on the road and I'm really proud of our toughness tonight," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "WVU Tech is a solid team, and I think they will do well in their conference. Ultimately we took care of business and get back to work on Friday."
Lindsey Dunn took a pass from Skye Zimmer in the 22nd minute for the 1-0 edge. Things seemed to stall a bit until right out of halftime when the Golden Bears pushed the attack and found the back of the net.
Georgetown College women's soccer went 2-0 this past week, scoring nine goals. Sophomore Skye Zimmer played a big role in that – three goals and an assist. For her efforts, Zimmer has been recognized by the Mid-South Conference with Offensive Player of the Week honors.
It is the first time in her career earning this award.
She started the week with a goal against Point Park University as the Tigers (4-2-1) took a 4-0 decision. The Louisville, Ky. native then wrapped the week with two goals and an assist against University of Pikeville to open up MSC action.
Georgetown College women's soccer laced it up with a purpose Saturday against Mid-South Conference opponent University of Pikeville. The two teams in solidarity took a kick at pediatric cancer in the Go For the Goal, Lace It Up For Pediatric Cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates 10,380 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and 1,250 deaths will occur among children aged birth to 14 years. All proceeds went to fight childhood cancer and both teams wore gold laces for this game.
The gold laces helped to highlight some fancy footwork the Tigers (4-2-1, 1-0) did in the torrential rain. They hung a five spot on the board and opened league play with a convincing win, 5-1, over University of Pikeville (4-3, 0-1).
"I'm happy with our offensive prowess today," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "It's something on which we've really been working. We still have work to do becoming a bit smarter all over the field to prevent silly goals."
