West Georgia Takes Step Toward Postseason
Carrollton, GA - The first step in the final drive to the postseason for the West Georgia Wolves is complete, as the Wolves held off a late challenge from the West Alabama Tigers Tuesday night, celebrating senior night for five UWG players with a 2-1 victory over the Tigers at University Field.
Heading into Tuesday's match, the Wolves needed several pieces to fall into place to move into the Gulf South Conference tournament next weekend, but the first piece that needed to fall was a win over the Tigers on Tuesday evening.
The Wolves opened the scoring Tuesday night in the 16th minute when West Alabama tried to clear a ball out of the box, but junior Anna Cusick was right there and delivered a 20-yard blast just over the outstretched hand of the UWA keeper for a 1-0 lead in the contest.
But West Alabama was not going down without a fight, as the Tigers tied the match at the 31-minute mark on a blast off of a free kick, as freshman Nicki Gears scored her eighth goal of the season on a pass from Sam Cable. That goal tied the match at 1-1 and that score stood for the remainder of the first half.
