Georgetown College men's soccer took on No. 16 Union College Wednesday evening, stepping out of Mid-South Conference play for a game.
The Bulldogs (9-0-2) scored three quick goals to put away the Tigers (2-8). However, Georgetown show resolve in recomposing itself after the early onslaught to fight for the rest of the game.
GC managed six shots in the second half and one of its best chances was actual a fingertip, diving save late in the first half.
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).
