Georgetown College men's soccer played to a draw for the first 45 minutes Tuesday against Union College. The Bulldogs did not waste much time in the second half to score the decisive goal. The Bulldogs (6-0) scored just more than two minutes into the final 45, going on to a 3-0 win in Barbourville.
JT Stephens scored his first collegiate goal, tying the game against Mount St. Joseph University (1-4) late in the first half. The assist came from Trent Boyd, who 33 seconds later made it a 2-1 Georgetown College (1-3) lead and the men's soccer team never looked back in tallying win one on the season.
"I thought we started really slow and a bit disinterested," said GC men's soccer coach Derek Willis. "We had some sloppy play that led to the Mount St. Joseph's goal.
"But after that we brought in some subs that seemed to energize the line-up. I'm proud of the way we never quit."
Stephens broke free down the right side and Boyd hit him in stride as the Lions goalkeeper was charging. The freshman calmly pushed the ball past Jonathan Hurley, side stepped him and then put the passing shot into the back of the net far corner.
Taylor University men's soccer team christened its new field with a 1-0 win over Georgetown College Saturday evening. In the Taylor University tournament, the Trojans scored a goal in the final 16 minutes to break up a stalemate.
Tyler Hafer got the start in the pipes for the Tigers (0-3). He finished with eight saves, but could not stop Danny Cawley as he dribbled through the defense and found the back of the net with 16:52 remaining in the contest.
Georgetown College men's soccer team hit the road Friday for the Taylor University tournament. The Tigers played a very speedy Indiana Wesleyan University. Despite getting five strikes on the Wildcat goalie, it was IWU's offense that capitalized. Matthew Oster made nine saves, but Indiana Wesleyan was able to convert twice in each half for the 4-0 win.
"They were a really good team," said GC men's soccer coach Derek Willis. "We had some really good looks and chances, which could have helped to make things interesting. I hope we use what happened today and up our game tomorrow."
The Tigers (0-2) take on host Taylor in a at 7 pm. The Trojans are 2-2 on the season coming off a 4-1 win over Marygrove.
Taylor Shaver had his best season yet, helping Tiger men's soccer to five wins – the most in a season in his four years. The senior from Shelbyville, Ky. netted eight goals and is one of the top 32 players in the Mid-South Conference. His previous goal-high was seven in his sophomore year.
The league office announced the MSC All-Conference first and second teams Wednesday afternoon. Shaver was second team, and one of only nine forwards selected.
