In the men’s action the Tigers (2-9, 1-2) scored with 14 minutes left in the first half and took the 1-0 lead to the locker room. Just three minutes into the second half Georgetown made it 2-0 when Jordan Gregory followed in on an open net after Riley Williams kick hit the crossbar.
Patrick Williams scored on a penalty kick for the Patriots at the 55 minute mark to make the score 2-1 but the Tigers scored on a penalty kick of their own at 82 minutes to complete the scoring.
