Railsplitters Fall to Unranked NAIA Opponent Georgetown College

Box Score

HARROGATE, TN - On Saturday afternoon, the No. 8 ranked Lincoln Memorial University men's soccer team played at home for only the second time this season and was defeated by unranked NAIA opponent Georgetown College.  The loss drops the Railsplitters to 7-2-1 on the year and marks the first time since August 26, 2007 that the Railsplitters have lost a home match.  The loss was also the Railsplitters first loss on the new LMU soccer field.

The Railsplitters came out with a strong offensive attack and narrowly missed paydirt on several occasions.  The closest opportunity for a goal came in the early minutes when sophomore reserve Adam Huber (Murfreesboro, TN) hit the cross bar in the fourteenth minute of the match.  Despite the LMU attack, Georgetown managed to generate several runs and finally broke the Railsplitter defensive effort at the 27:00 minute mark when Aaaron Vossmer scored unassisted to give the Tigers a 1-0.  LMU trailed until the forty-third minute when junior defender Felipe Nogueira (Uberaba, Brazil) scored on a direct kick to even the match at 1-1, taking the tie into the second half.

Both the Railsplitters and the Tigers struggled through a defensive battle that lasted most of the second half.  Numerous cards were issued to indivduals from both teams before Georgetown's Alex Butt used a Jarrod Willough/Aaron Vossmer pass in the eightieth minute to break the tie and eventually give the Tigers the upset victory over the Lincoln Memorial University men.

LMU will now have until Wednesday evening to prepare for their annual conference battle with cross-state rival Carson-Newman College.  On October 1, the Railsplitters will travel to Jefferson City, Tennessee to try and regain the respect lost in Saturday's match with Georgetown and to remain undefeated in South Atlantic Conference play.  Wednesday's match gets underway at 7:00 p.m.
