A Program First, Eagles Beat Georgetown
Georgetown, Ky. - Jessica Batey returned from injury in a big way Tuesday afternoon, scoring her first collegiate goal one minute into overtime giving the Eagles their first ever win over Georgetown College, 2-1.
Asbury (11-6) took a first half off Bethany Russell's fifth goal of the season. Miranda Wiley picked up her ninth assist of the season as she sent in a cross that Russell put away in the 39th minute. Asbury took the lead despite playing defensively most of the first half, getting off only three shots to the Tigers' eight.
The game would even out in the second half with each team taking seven shots, but the biggest equalizer came off the foot of Georgetown forward Chelsea Farley as she tied the game at 1-1 in the 74th minute. Katie Sundall's shot was deflected by Asbury keeper Melanie Dickson but Farley was there to knock it back in to send the game to overtime.
Batey has been sidelined most of this season because of injury and returned with her first game winner. Batey got a rebound off a shot that hit the post and she finished to give the Eagles the win.
Asbury will close out the regular season with a 12:30 match against Covenant (Ga.) on Saturday October 31st. The Eagles will honor their outgoing seniors before the match.
