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."
Georgetown College women's soccer created opportunities early and often Tuesday afternoon against Point Park University. Skye Zimmer took the first of 20 shots just 23 seconds into the game. The Tigers (3-2-1) found the back of the net near halftime, opening the flood gates in a 4-0 win.
"I was thrilled with our focus today. After getting scored on in the second minute at Rio (Grande) one of our goals was to come out hard from the whistle," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "I believe we had our first scoring opportunity of the game 30 seconds after the kickoff. We have really been working on the small details and it showed today."
Zimmer netted the first goal in the 40th minute to get it all going. The sophomore took six shots, two on frame. She even had one hit the crossbar.
Georgetown College women's soccer was not going to be denied. The offense has been a bit stagnant after exploding out of the gates in the season opener. Saturday on the road at University of Rio Grande, it flashed again in the 3-1 win.
The Tigers (2-2-1) scored just one goal in three games – a tie and two losses – after shelling Union College 4-0 in the opener back in late August.
The RedStorm (0-4-1) took the early lead – scoring in the second minute of the game. Skye Zimmer knotted it 17 minutes later, netting her first goal of the season off a rebound of a miss.
