Unafraid. Determined. Georgetown College women's soccer season has a mission and a purpose driven by seven seniors. The Tigers (5-3-1) have run the gauntlet in the early non-conference slate, facing current No. 1 Martin Methodist College, No. 17 Taylor University and Grace College, which is receiving votes in the national poll.

While the best result has been a 1-1 tie with Grace earlier this week, Martin and Taylor have netted just two goals in wins. GC faced Grace on Wednesday, turning around for a morning battle with TU Saturday. The Trojans won 2-0.

"I think this week has taken a toll on us, as I saw some mental fatigue today," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We were not connecting our passes well. I will give Taylor's defense credit, when we were able to get forward a bit they busted up much of our attack.

"They are definitely a top 20 team, and there is a lot we can learn from today's match."

Georgetown College women's soccer played an afternoon affair against former Mid-South Conference foe West Virginia Tech. The Tigers (5-2) scored in the first 10 minutes and made it stand in the 1-0 win.

Elise McKinney took a slip from Jodi DeJohn and netted the winner in top right corner.

Megan Martin pitched her first blank sheet as the lone keeper for 90 minutes. She has a few shared shutouts earlier in the season with Sarah Slusher.

Georgetown College women's soccer faced a familiar foe Wednesday evening in the misty rain at Toyota Stadium. University of Rio Grande came to town. The once Mid-South Conference team gave everything it had, pushing the Tigers (4-2) to the limit in a 3-1 victory.

While the rain slowed some of the pace of the game and made passing tricky at times, Jodi DeJohn and Bethany Massey were able to score – helping Georgetown back to its winning ways.

Rebounding from a tough road loss, the Tigers showed determination in the first 25 minutes. DeJohn broke loose and worked around a pair of RedStorm (1-4) defenders on her way to blasting a shot past Andrea Vera. The goalie made a nice dive, but could not get enough power on her push to keep it from the back of the net.

Taking the next step is the focus of this year's Georgetown College women's soccer team. The past two seasons, the Tigers have been knocking on the door of postseason play – just several teams shy of a bid to the 32-team tournament.

Therefore, coach Leah Crews Castleman designed a tougher road for her veteran squad with the focus of learning and displaying the talents of the team on a larger scale.

One of those tests was against No. 4 Martin Methodist College Saturday in Pulaski, Tenn. The Tigers (4-2) shutdown one of the hottest scorers in the nation, but the RedHawks (6-0) did net a goal in each half for a 2-0 victory.

One of the toughest things in sports is to lose a difficult game and have to rebound without any practice time between. Georgetown College women's soccer did just that this past weekend. Originally they were to play Friday and Sunday, but weather pushed Friday's game to early Saturday. Meaning the Tigers (3-1) had roughly 24 hours to travel to a new town, settle in and play noon on Sunday.

Despite trailing at one point, GC rallied for the 3-2 win.

Saturday's defeat could have flattened the team's mood and good vibes of the solid start it had in its first two wins – both by shutouts. However, the veteran laden team did not let it alter their approach against University of South Carolina – Beaufort.
