KCU Can’t Move #3 Georgetown
Kentucky Christian (2-2) had to tough task of taking on perennial NAIA powerhouse #3 Georgetown College (4-0) on their homecoming and weren’t able to come away with the win, losing 27-6. Georgetown is always competitive, going undefeated in conference play since the 2010 season.
The first play from scrimmage #12 Andrew Stewart was able to cause the Tigers to fumble, recovered by #97 Marvin Newkirk, and give the offense great field position, but KCU was not able to fully capitalize and settled on a field goal, giving them the early 3-0 lead with 11:45 left in the first quarter.
Georgetown made sure to hold onto the ball the next set of downs scoring the first touchdown of the game in eight plays with 8:25 left in the first quarter.
KCU scored their last points of the game with 4:57 left in the first quarter when #19 Andrew Slikker hit the 45 yard field goal, making him 2-2 on the day.
The rest of the game belonged to Georgetown scoring two touchdowns in the second quarter and one in the third giving them the 27-6 victory.
Head Coach Mike Furrey was not exactly pleased with the effort but did notice a few positives from the game, “Defense did not show up at all today, and no one really showed up to compete. We did put in a new offense this week and our running game is starting to get better.” The Knights netted 67 yards rushing, which is better than the last three opponents against Georgetown combined.
When the defense and the offense for the Knights start clicking at the same time, they will proved to be a tough team to beat. Help us welcome the Knights back home next Saturday as they take on Campbellsville University at 1:30pm.
