The Georgetown College women’s soccer team has had a rollercoaster of a season. They’ve been able to finish in most games, but they had several bumps in the road. The Tigers seem to be playing as a unit, which shows how they’ve grown and matured throughout the season. GC (10-6) shu out the St. Catherine College Patriots (11-6-2) with a score of 1-0 on Saturday, Nov. 3. Georgetown also took care of the Patriots for senior night on Oct. 24, the score being the same. The win on the 24th gave Georgetown home field advantage. This time around, though, the Tigers had to brave rainy, gloomy and frigid weather.
Georgetown’s coach, Leah Crews Castleman, was happy that her team had the home field advantage and was able to capitalize with an important win. “We knew it was huge for all kinds of reasons to win more than a week ago when they came here,” the GC soccer coach said. “To be at home for that first round of play in front of your crowd is important” (georgetowncollegeathletics.com).
GC got on the scoreboard quickly in the first half and didn’t look back. The goal came from Sarah Hencke across to Sam Amend. The ball got past two St. Catherine defenders to land right in front of Amend, who quickly controlled the ball and made a quick shot for the score.
Not a lot of action happened the rest of the game, the score staying the same to the final whistle. With the win, the Tigers advance to the conference semi-finals. The Tigers will face the winner of the Lindsey Wilson College-University of Rio Grande on Wednesday at 1p.m.
