SGC Men Sweep GPC, Earn Second Seed in Playoffs
For the first time in recent SGC soccer history, the Tigers
have defeated the Georgia Perimeter College Jaguars in both regular season
meetings. Saturday afternoon in Douglas, the Tigers beat the Jaguars 2-0,
securing second place in the conference and earning a first-round bye in the
post-season tournament, which begins Oct. 26 in Albany.
Lloyd Matthews scored his conference-leading 12th and 13th goals of the
season in the first half. His first goal came on a header off a 40-yard free
kick. He scored his second goal near the end of the half on a penalty kick.
Keeper Jordan Crown had five saves in the shutout.
On Tuesday, Oct. 9, the Lady Tigers hosted ABAC in a game in which SGC was
heavily favored to win. ABAC, however, had other plans, and upset the Lady
Tigers 1-0. ABAC’s Krista Whitley scored the only goal of the game in the
31st minute. SGC had 13 shots on goal; none made it past keeper Amanda
Biondino. ABAC, meanwhile, had just three shots on goal. Lady Tigers’ keeper
Courtisha Ebanks stopped two of the three shots.
The SGC men play their last regular season game of the year on Oct. 19 in
Douglas at 5 p.m. against Georgia Military. The women played on Oct. 16
against Georgia Perimeter in Clarkston. Results were unavailable at press
time. The Lady Tigers also finish their season on Oct. 19 against Georgia
Military in Douglas at 3 p.m.
