Georgetown College women's soccer faced a task few have been successful at – beating perennial power Lindsey Wilson College on its home field. The No. 5 Blue Raiders (9-3-0) have 200 wins at home, but the No. 24 Tigers (10-3-1) made them fight for that milestone victory.
The game was a scoreless affair for more than 75 minutes when Kaitlin Cook found Veronica Kurtz-Martinez for the game-winning goal. Lindsey ran out the final 12 minutes in a 1-0 victory.
The Blue Raiders improve to 4-0 in Mid-South Conference action, taking the head-to-head match-up with now third seeded Georgetown at 4-1. Cumberland University leads the pack with a 5-0 mark in the league. The No. 12 Phoenix host LWC Oct. 25 and travel to GC four days later.
Georgetown College women's soccer went to Campbellsville, Ky. and defeated the 22nd ranked Campbellsville University Tigers, 2-1. Zoe Stovik and Bethany Massey played big roles in the victory and have been named Mid-South Conference Defensive and Offensive Player of the Week respectively.
Stovik scored the first goal off a corner kick from Massey. The junior also serves as the anchor of the defense, keeping CU to just one goal.
"I love seeing Zoe recognized for this award," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "She does so much for us as a center back playing 90 minutes every game, but then converts opportunities for us offensively as well when we need them the most."
Into the 77th minute, it was already proving to be another epic defensive battle between the two Mid-South Conference Tigers. Georgetown College women's soccer (10-2, 4-0) went to Campbellsville University Wednesday evening, looking to get a Top 25 victory and stay undefeated in conference play. The team did both with a 2-1 win.
It was tied after 76 minutes and it looked like another late score would do it. Set pieces are GC's forte and helped to provide the lead it never relinquished.
With a header by Zoe Stovik, the visitors were on top of the No. 22 CU Tigers (8-4, 0-2). The junior defender finished a beautiful corner from Bethany Massey for her third goal of the season. Massey scored the game-winner off a pass from Jodi DeJohn. Campbellsville responded back quickly to the second score, but the final 4:30 drained out with Georgetown securing the one-goal edge.
Georgetown College women's soccer went 3-0 this past week with two games coming less than 24 hours apart. The Tigers, receiving votes in the coaches' poll, made a swing through Georgia to play Mid-South Conference newcomer Life University and added a game with Georgia Gwinnett as well. The Tigers rallied over the Grizzlies and then exploded against the Running Eagles for big wins that helped the team to also sweep the weekly conference honors.
Gillian Morris took seven shots, six on frame – four of which were goals, to help her earn her first MSC Offensive Player of the Week award. The freshman was dialed in, scoring half her team's goals against Life.
Gillian Morris had a break out game Saturday against Life University. The freshman had just one goal all season, but found the back of the net four times on seven shots – six on frame. Morris had 14 shots, nine on frame, through 11 games before the explosion in Georgia.
The Tigers (9-2-1) overall had a breakout win considering the turnaround time from a tough rally victory Friday. Georgetown scored 8-0 in the win over Life, not 24-hours after a difficult 2-1 win over Georgia Gwinnett College.
"I was happy with the way we controlled the game. It was good to see some of the younger players stepping up and contributing offensively," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "It's never easy to play two games back-to-back on the road so I was pleased with our focus and resilience this weekend."
