The ladies of the Georgetown soccer team were able to bounce back from an unfortunate double overtime loss at Campbellsville on Wednesday, Sept. 26. GC was able to beat the University of the Cumberlands 3-1 on Saturday night at iHigh Field.
Georgetown with the win claims a very respectable 5-2 record overall, and 4-1 in Mid-South Conference play. With her fourth goal of the season, sophomore Bea Cameron put the Tigers on the board early. The Patriots of the Cumberlands did respond though, with a strike from outside the box. The goal came off a corner kick that just passed GC goalie Kelsey Givens.
The game stayed deadlocked at one a piece until just before the second half. Senior Alessandra Jansen connected with freshman Sarah Hencke who opened up the lead for the Georgetown College Tigers. Jansen was also able to put the ball in the back of the net to give the Tigers a more comfortable lead.
GC coach Castleman was pleased with the way his team came back after being a little beat up. He stressed the importance of perserverance through adversity. ”It was good to see us come back and play the way we did,“ Castleman said. “We need to see the ball going into the back of the net. We’ve been bit nicked up throughout the year in some of our returning power up top, but we can’t let that stop us.” Georgetown hopes to keep the ball rolling against No. 2 Lindsey Wilson College.
