Knights suffer setback at Georgetown

Sept. 26, 2012 — Kentucky Christian University (2-2) had the 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 consistently dominant, going undefeated in conference play since the 2010 season.

The first play from scrimmage Andrew Stewart was able to cause the Tigers to fumble, recovered by Marvin Newkirk, to give the Knight offense great field position. KCU was not able to fully capitalize and settled for 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 a the 8:25 mark of the first quarter.

KCU continued to surprise the Georgetown crowd, scoring its last points of the game with 4:57 left in the period when Andrew Slikker connected on a 45-yard field goal, making him 2-2 on the day.

Despite the Knights' fighting spirit, the rest of the game belonged to the Tigers as the home team went on to score 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," Furrey said. "We did put in a new offense this week and our running game is starting to get better.”

The Knights tallied 67 yards rushing, which is better than the last three opponents against Georgetown combined.

Saturday marks the Knights' return home, as they take on Campbellsville University at 1:30pm.

Journal-Times sports will have more on this game in next Wednesday's edition.
