Sixty-eight Mid-South Conference men's soccer student-athletes earned Academic All MSC honors announced Wednesday afternoon. In order to be nominated by an institution, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of a 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved at least sophomore academic status.
Six Tigers earned this honor, the most from Georgetown since 2009.
Georgetown College men's soccer got the toughest match up for the Mid-South Conference quarterfinals. The Tigers (5-13) faced No. 4 Lindsey Wilson College (12-2-2) in Columbia Saturday afternoon. The Blue Raiders won 5-0.
Yusuf Ackers scored the first goal just before halftime and finished it off with a goal in the 81st minute. Elijah Ukpong and Billal Qsiyer scored the third and fourth goals, while it was a team goal for the second goal midway through the second half.
Oakland City University took an early crack on goal Wednesday against Georgetown College men's soccer. The Mighty Oaks made it count. In the seventh minute, Conor Felstead netted a goal and OCU took the 1-0 win over the Tigers (5-11).
GC got nine shots on goal, four on frame, but could never come up with the equalizer. Tyler Hafer came up with seven saves to keep the game close and Oakland at bay for the final 83 minutes.
Georgetown returns to action Saturday at University of Pikeville.
Freshman JT Stephens helped to send Georgetown College men's soccer seniors out in style Saturday against Asbury University. The Tigers (4-10) took the 1-0 victory after almost 88 minutes of scoreless soccer.
Stephens found the back of the net as the time ticked away and another overtime loomed large. Senior Stefan Iverson pitched a shutout, while fellow defensive seniors Matt Huff, Cody Hill, Zach Henson and Kyle Wright also had a hand in blanking the Eagles.
Having a servant heart and being a servant leader is one of the values in the NAIA Champions of Character program. It is also a staple of Georgetown College's athletic programs.
This past weekend, Tiger men's soccer participated in one of its most looked forward to event – Special Olympics Soccer Tournament.
"Guys have started to ask when the tournament is every year because it is something they want to do," said GC coach Derek Willis. "It is refreshing when it could be easy to get caught up in the wins and losses or stats and starters, but this bunch loves each other and genuinely cares about serving others."
