Georgetown College football scored a defensive touchdown Saturday. Jordan Kindred popped the ball loose from Damen Daniel. The football bounded into the endzone where the junior linebacker landed on it for the only score the Tigers (2-4) needed.
For his efforts, Kindred was named Mid-South Conference Defensive Player of the Week.
Along with the forced fumble and scored, the former Scott County High School standout recorded three solo tackles and assisted on two more. He had one and a half tackles for a loss of 11 yards and picked up a half sack on the afternoon.
Georgetown College football scored its first defensive touchdown of the season and improved to 2-0 in the Mid-South Conference East Division Saturday. The Tigers (2-4) traveled to Bluefield, W. Va. and handed the Rams (0-7) a 14-0 setback. This is eight straight quarters of scoreless football from the GC defense.
It is the first multi-shutout games in a season for the unit since 2004 and also that season it was back-to-back blankings the team handed out.
The Tigers offense struggled most of the day in the rainy, sloppy conditions. Three of the first four series ended by way of turnovers. However, the turnover on downs midway in the second quarter, set the Tigers defense up in prime position.
Georgetown College comes off one of the toughest opening months of the season with an impressive 37-0 home win over Kentucky Christian University.
It was not a pretty start as the Tiger defense put Georgetown in scoring position with an interception on the Knights first possession. However, the team moved backwards and the next series it was GC tossing a pick. Then team settled down as the defense continued to stonewall KCU (0-5).
Terry Johnson capped an 11-play, 77-yard drive with a three-yard rushing touchdown. It was all Georgetown from there.
The Tigers (1-4) have faced three teams ranked in the Top 15 the past three weeks and coming off the first blanking since 1996. Saturday, they scored 24 points in the middle quarters and put the game on ice to hand out its first shutout since 2012.
Georgetown College football finishes up the brutal month of September with a loss to No. 4 Faulkner University. For the fourth straight season these opposite divisional foes meet and thus far it is the home team holding ground each time. Faulkner scored just more than three minutes into the game off a 20-yard Hunter Kennamer field goal.
In the first time of the coach Bill Cronin era that would be all the opposing team needed. The Eagles won 44-0, handing the Tigers (0-4) its first shutout since 1996 – the season before Cronin took over.
GC has faced three ranked opponents the past three weeks, two inside the Top 10.
For the first time under coach Bill Cronin and not since 1994 have the Georgetown College football Tigers been 0-3. The Tigers faced one of the best scoring teams in the nation in Reinhardt University (3-0). They held the Eagles to half their average, but came up short scoring wise in a 36-25 loss at Toyota Stadium.
"I thought our defense played pretty decent," Cronin said. "They had a hard time with those long drives. That's tough. Our offense didn't get enough time on the field to give them ample rest."
Reinhardt broke the game open in the second half, outscoring GC 22-6. The Eagles marched straight down the field to open the third for a score and the two-point conversion. This gave them a 22-19 edge it never relinquished.
