Eagles Fall For First Time at Home
WILMORE, Ky. – For the first time all season, in their final game, the Asbury women could not pull out a victory in front of the home crowd. The Eagles were a perfect 9-0 at home before a 3-0 loss to Georgetown on Tuesday evening.
Asbury (10-8) was held to their lowest shot total of the season, taking only three shots against the Tigers, which is same number they took in the season opener against Indiana Wesleyan. Georgetown (11-5-2) controlled possession most of the match and took 18 shots.
The Eagles were able to contain the Tigers in the first half, but it was a different story in the second as Georgetown scored all three of their goals. In the 62nd minute Caitlin Williams knocked in the eventual game-winner and would be followed by Christina Thompson in the 76th and Bea Cameron in the 87th.
Asbury will receive a bye into the KIAC semi-finals to be held on Friday at 1:30 p.m. at Midway College. The Eagles will play the winner of Wednesday’s Mountain State-Berea match. Asbury beat Berea 5-0 and MSU 6-0 this year on their way to a perfect 4-0 league mark and their sixth straight KIAC Regular Season Title.
