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."
Georgetown College men's soccer played a stalemate for most of the first half against Cumberland University Friday. The Tigers (3-9, 1-4) had some big saves from Stefan Iverson, but the Bulldogs (7-5-1, 5-2) found a crack just before the half.
The host put two in over the final nine minutes of the first half and doubled it up in the second for a 4-0 win.
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.
Trent Boyd blasted Georgetown College men's soccer into the lead Wednesday night and then the men's soccer team held off University of the Cumberlands on iHigh.com Field. The Tigers (3-8, 1-3) have been on the verge of several big wins this season. Boyd's free kick came from about 30-yards out and found the upper v on the far side. Georgetown never looked back in the 2-0 win.
Almost 15 minutes later, Aaron Stover used his quickness to dribble past two Patriot (4-7, 2-4) defenders down the right sideline. He took a touch in and bent a sliding pass back through the box, finding Ben Hoertz finishing his run and the cushion goal.
"Really proud of the guys and the performance they put in the game tonight," said GC coach Derek Willis. "We've been playing at a consistently high level for most of the season, but lacked the goals to change the game.
"Tonight we found them. The free kick from Trent was top notch, an unbelieveable drive to the far post. The goal that Ben finished was one of my favorites of the season because it was a team goal. Stover tracked down a ball and was able to put a terrific cross in and Hoertz made a great run that is often not rewarded, but was able to put it in the back of the net."
