Georgetown College men's soccer welcomed nearby Midway University for a first ever showdown between the teams as the Eagles just added males to the general enrollment population this year. It could be a budding rivalry for the NAIA schools just 15 minutes apart. The Tigers (4-6-3) took the series opener in dramatic fashion. They got behind early before rallying for a 2-1 win at Toyota Stadium.
"I really proud of the guys to fight back after starting slow and giving up a sloppy goal," said GC coach Derek Willis. "After that goal we really controlled the majority of the game and were unlucky to only come away with two goals."
Nick Gregory netted his ninth goal and second game winner early in the second half off a beautiful cross from Jordan Murdoch.
Blaine Skeen buried a penalty kick in the 87th minute to help Georgetown College men's soccer stave off a second defeat in the Mid-South Conference. The Tigers hosted University of the Cumberlands and played to a 1-1, double overtime draw.
GC was without the services of starting goalie Matthew Skeen and starting midfielder Noah Mills – both dealing with illnesses. Patrick Schwarz stepped in and despite an early Patriot (2-7-2, 0-2-1) goal, stood his ground and kept the Tigers (3-5-3, 1-1-1) in it until Skeen tied it.
Cole Dewey was fouled going for a header in the 18-yard box by Jack Hutton, leading to the free kick. Skeen showed no fear in striking a passing shot into the right corner.
Georgetown College men's soccer broke out of its rough two-game skid with a strong road win in the Mid-South Conference. The Tigers (3-5, 1-1 MSC) patiently stayed the course, scored on a penalty and then gave themselves cushion in a 2-0 victory Saturday over Life University (0-9, 0-3).
"It was a good game for us. We were solid defensively and didn't panic when we didn't score early," said GC coach Derek Willis. "Once we made a shape change in the second half, we were really able to control the game and finally got the break through on a penalty from Noah Mills."
In the 63rd minute, Noah Mills was fouled in the box by Jacob Bevins. Mills stepped to the line and scored the game-winning goal. He would add the insurance goal 21 minutes later.
The Tigers had 26 shots, eight on frame.
Georgetown College men's soccer played a man down for most of the match, but still found a way to pull out the 1-0 road victory over Brescia University – a previously undefeated team.
The Tigers (2-3-2) had an ejection two-thirds into the first half, leaving GC to play 10 on 11 until late in the match when the Bearcats (5-1) also had a player ejected.
Georgetown never got discouraged or lost its stride, though, pushing the tempo. They took 11 shots, eight on frame. The two that broke it open occurred as Noel Roman sent a chip shot over BU's goalie. It appeared to be going in when it hit the post and careened toward another Tiger.
Georgetown College men's soccer played a strong possession game Saturday despite the heavy rain and crazy winds. The Tigers were opening Mid-South Conference play against University of Pikeville and for the longest time it appeared this game would go into extra time.
Both teams had opportunities, but both were coming up empty due to misfires, good defense and great saves. GC (1-3-2, 0-1) then took a transition into the box that had the light shining bright on the home team for a moment.
JT Stephens was fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty kick. The anticipation swelled through some discussion over the foul, maybe too much time for the junior to think about it.
