Sarah Hencke got an early goal and then it was celebration time for the Georgetown College women's soccer team Saturday on Senior Day. The Tigers (7-8) took the 3-0 win over Bryan College.
"It is huge to score early on a day such as this," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "Every player wants to make it a great day for our seniors and emotions are running high. These can be trap games, but we came out and took care of business. Sarah has really been rolling for us this year."
Georgetown College does something every five years – tie Lindsey Wilson College. The women's soccer team battled No. 7 Blue Raiders (8-3-3, 5-0-1) for 110 minutes for a 1-1 draw Wednesday at Toyota Stadium.
LWC struck first with a goal two minutes into the second half. GC coach Leah Crews Castleman substituted in Kelsey Aerni and Lindsey Dunn within four minutes of each other. Five minutes after that, the tandem hooked up for the equalizer in the 73rd minute.
Aerni took the throw in and set up Dunn on a running route to finish the goal.
Georgetown College women's soccer gave No. 1 Cumberland University all it could want in the first half. The Bulldogs (12-0-1, 6-0 MSC) were blanked for the first 45 minutes, something a team has not done since No. 13 Martin Methodist did it back on Sept. 23. CU broke the tie early in the second half and took the win 4-0 in Lebanon, Tenn.
Sophomore goalie Brittany Moshos came up with six saves as Cumberland got off 28 shots, 10 on frame. Emily Shires tallied her seventh goal of the season just a tad more than two minutes into the second half. Nearly 20 minutes later Olivia Chu scored and four minutes after that scored again for the 3-0 advantage.
Georgetown College women's soccer tallied its fourth straight win and sixth in the past eight games. Defender Zoe Stovik headed in yet another cornerkick, giving the Tigers (6-7) the 1-0 win over visiting Point Park University.
"We played a bit slow at times, maybe seeing some of the wear and tear from the long trip this past weekend," said GC coach Leah Crews Castleman. "We grinded this one out today. It was a good win and good to see Zoe continue to find ways to make waves on the offensive side of the field."
The freshman, who has four goals this season, came into the offensive set during a corner kick in the second half. As the ball bounded around in the box, Stovik put a head on it into the far post for the winning goal.
Sarah Hencke's rebound goal broke up a 0-0 tie just more than a minute into the second half and Georgetown College women's soccer team never looked back. The Tigers (4-7, 2-2) kept University of the Cumberlands winless on the season, handing the Patriots (0-12, 0-6) a 3-0 defeat Wednesday in Georgetown.
Hencke bookend the scoring and Zoe Stovik continued her hot streak of finding the back of the net for the Tigers. Stovik, who scored twice in this past week's three games, put a header on a cornerkick cross from Becca Dietrich.
Hencke was first set up by Ariel Howell, putting Georgetown in the lead for good at the 46:19 mark. Sam Amend assisted her second goal almost six minutes later.
