The Tigers show their dominance after a convincing win over Blueeld College. Georgetown’s football team traveled to Blueeld, Va. and crushed the Rams with a nal score of 77-9. With the win this weekend, the team has won 18 straight games. Georgetown scored often and early, the rst score coming as a 10-yard run from Senior Blake Naylor. Blueeld couldn’t seem to score against the solid defense of the Tigers, and didn’t score until the second half. Georgetown’s running game was extremely effective, with 330 yards on the ground. The Tigers special team stepped up its game as well. To open up the second half, Zach Sowder ran back the kick-off 92 yards for a touchdown. Georgetown was also able to capitalize off a locked punt from Ryan Vaughn for six. Coach Bill Cronin was pleased with the way his team performed. “Our ground attack was strong and special teams scored twice,” recalled the GC coach. “That’s what you like to see early on in the season” (georgetowncollegeathletics.com). When everything was said and done, seven Georgetown players were able to make it into the end zone. The Tigers hope to keep everyone on the same page and contributing to the team’s success. Georgetown College’s next game is against Faulkner University at home. The Tigers hope to play another lights out game at Toyota Stadium here in Georgetown. The game is this Thursday night at 7 p.m. GC is looking for the Tiger Nation to show up in a big way and anticipate 10,000 Tigers in attendance.
