On Homecoming weekend, the football Tigers played well in front of a crowd packed with Georgetown alumni, current students and ever-loyal fans. Georgetown (4-0, 1-0 Mid-South Conference East) took down a tough opponent in Kentucky Christian University (2-2, 0-1 MSC East) on Saturday to stay unbeaten. The tigers played stingy defense all day, holding a strong KCU team to only 2 field goals while the Neal Pawsat lead offense worked their usual magic winning 27-6.
The game was only close in the first quarter after Georgetown fumbled on their first play at the GC 26. The defense held KCU to only a field goal and the Tigers scored on the next drive. KCU followed with another field goal, this one an impressive 45 yards, but the scoring stopped there for the Knights. They used a lot of ball tricks with their quarterback and two running backs, but they were held to 62 yards rushing and 120 total offensive yards. Georgetown scored two more times in the second quarter and once in the third to complete their 27 points. Neal Pawsat completed 15 of 26 passes for 249 overall passing yards and two touchdowns caught by Adam Schmitz and Corey Cronin. Schmitz and Pawsat ran the ball for the remaining two touchdowns. Josh Downing led the Georgetown defense with 13 tackles while Pat Daugherty, DJ Lemons, Brock Messina and Brandon Lawson all had 8.
The Tigers are now on a 13-game home and 21-game regular season win streak. Georgetown will be hosting Bethel University on Saturday, Sept. 29.
