The Georgetown College Women’s soccer team is starting to get into a rhythm, win- ning their last two games. The girls were able to shut out the Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers 2-0 on Wednesday, Sept. 13, and they eked out a win against Shawnee State University on Saturday. With the win on Saturday Georgetown has a 2-1 record.

After losing in their season opener to Mount Vernon Nazerene 2-1, the Tigers were eager to get a win. What’s possibly most impressive about Georgetown’s win on Thurs- day was the fact that it was against a NCAA Division II opponent.

The Tigers attacked often and early, scoring within 15 minutes of the first whistle. The goal was by Senior Alex Harbowy with the assist credited to Bea Cameron. Alex Harbowy was a big factor in this game, and she assisted a goal to freshman Sarah Hencke. Georgetown shot 14 times, with eight hitting the frame of the goal.

Saturday brought another win for the Women’s soccer team with a win over the Shawnee State Bears. The Tigers added another shutout win to their resume with a 1-nil result. Though they struggled a little with their control, Georgetown was able to pull out a win at home.

Tiger coach Leach Crews Castleman acknowledged the room for improvement but was pleased with the games outcomes. “We didn’t play our best and we know it, but you have to be able to win those games as well and what we take away from today,“ the GC coach said. ”We had more opportunities and our players know that. We had our second shutout of the week and now we work on a few things and keep going” (georgetowncollegeathletics.com).
