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.
Nick Gregory was close to tying his four-goal game earlier this season in a much needed way Wednesday. Georgetown College men's soccer team traveled to Mount Vernon, Ohio to play Mount Vernon Nazarene.
The Cougars (6-1-1) jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, but Gregory equalized the game and had a hand in every goal scored by the Tigers (1-2-2). The result was a tie, 4-4, but much improved following a tough loss Saturday. This is the second double overtime game for Georgetown, both resulting in ties.
"Loved the determination and grit we showed today after going two behind," said GC coach Derek Willis. "The goals we gave away early were very unlucky, but the guys really stepped up the pressure and were able to change the game."
Georgetown College men's soccer had its opportunities Saturday afternoon, but were unable to finish against Ohio Christian University. Add to that the Tigers (1-3) gave up another penalty kick, their fourth in as many games, and it was an uphill battle. OCU scored a goal in each half for the 2-0 win.
The Trailblazers were fouled in the box late in the first half and netted the awarded shot off the cross bar. Then a quick transition near the end of the game put Griffin Smith in a one on one with Brent Palmer. The OCU player pushed the ball back around a diving Smith and it was all it needed.
Georgetown College men's soccer opened its home schedule Wednesday evening against a very tough Mount St. Joseph University team.
The Tigers (1-1-1) scored first in the physical battle, but a Cougar (2-0-1) goal in the 84th minute tied it. The game remained knotted for the final 26 minutes, including a pair of overtimes, for a 1-1 draw.
J.T. Stephens found the back of the net after a hard foul in the box gave GC a penalty kick. The junior shot the ball low in the 70th minute for the edge.
MSJU tied the game when Tyler Schumann lofted it to himself, whirled around the defender inside the six-yard box and scored past Matthew Oster.
