Georgetown College men's soccer's Aaron Stover bookended the first half with a goal in the fifth minute and a goal in the 42nd minute. Unfortunately, University of the Cumberlands had the answer in the second half. The Patriots (7-4-1) rallied, forced overtime and with less than a minute to play in the first 10 minutes scored the golden-goal for a 3-2 victory.
"I'm really proud of the guys tonight," said GC coach Derek Willis, "but devastated with the loss. We started the game without our captain, Matthew Murphy, but Lucas Whitehouse did a great job. With Blaine Skeen going down early, it really disrupted our subbing pattern and you could see us fatigue as the game went on.
"However, I felt we earned a penalty in the last minute when Nick Gregory was held as he was dribbling in the box. I also feel that Isaac Meisner was fouled on their game winner."
Georgetown College men's soccer team rebounded from a tough loss to Cumberland University with a lot of energy despite the confusion over where Wednesday's match with St. Catharine College would be played. The two teams fought hard with the visitors coming out on top 2-1.
The Tigers (2-6, 1-3 MSC) were supposed to travel to Springfield, Ky. for a showdown with the Patriots (5-5, 1-2). However, rain soaked the grass field and with a turf field in Georgetown it seemed like the best solution for getting the game in this week was to switch locations.
Wednesday morning both teams agreed to the change of venue.
It was a stalemate through the first 20 minutes, but in the 24th minute a foul in the box was called on GC defender Matthew Murphy.
Georgetown College faced an extremely hot Cumberland University team Saturday. The Bulldogs, receiving votes in the most recent NAIA Coaches' Poll, came in undefeated and entering Mid-South Conference play at Toyota Stadium.
The Tigers looked to capitalize early on a quick transition that found Trent Boyd in line with the last defenders. However, he had to step backwards to get there and thus offsides and his beautiful goal in the upper v nullified. CU pounced quickly after that and never let up in a 7-0 win. Cumberland improves to 8-0 on the season and 1-0 in league. Georgetown falls to 2-5 and 1-2.
"That call goes the other way, maybe we get a spark," said GC coach Derek Willis. "Hats off to Cumberland. They are a very good team."
The Tigers return to action Wednesday at St. Catharine College.
Georgetown College men's soccer traveled to Ohio for a game with Ohio Christian University Saturday. Midway through the first half the host school scored and had the insurance goal 10 minutes later for a 2-0 win.
The Tigers fall to 2-4 on the season. They failed to find the back of the net for just the third time this season, but managed 10 shots on goal. Nick Gregory and Trent Boyd each had two shots on frame.
Matthew Oster replaced an injured Patrick Schwartz in the goal. The two scores against the junior keeper were well struck balls that were difficult saves to make.
GC returns home 3 pm Saturday hosting Cumberland University (6-0).
Georgetown College men's soccer hit the road Wednesday for a showdown with Mid-South Conference foe No. 9 Lindsey Wilson College. The Tigers (2-3, 1-1 MSC) battled hard, but came up short in Columbia, Ky. 5-0.
Franco Roman scored in the 29th minute off a pass from Serge Gomis for the only goal the Blue Raiders (7-1, 1-0) needed. Georgetown held down one of the best in the nation in scoring. LWC is fifth in total goals with 26 this season.
Lindsey Wilson found the back of the net only one more time in the first half – Aleksi Pahkasalo scored off a cross from Tauan Salgado in the 33rd minute.
