Downpour Cancels Soccer Match

9. 19. 2014 - Women's Soccer

An isolated thunderstorm that hovered over Albany late this afternoon forced the cancellation of the Gordon State - Darton State College women's soccer match. Due to the amount of rain, the field was deemed too wet to play for Friday evening's contest. A possible makeup match will try to be scheduled at a later date. With the cancellation, the women's soccer team will now return home and play Sunday in Barnesville as the Highlanders will face South Georgia State College at 6 p.m. Admission for the conference match is FREE!

Seven Straight Coming To An End

9. 17. 2014 - Women's Soccer

The grueling schedule of seven straight road matches is finally coming to an end for Gordon State College. Once completed, the women's soccer team will have logged more than 1,700 miles and practically touched every part of the state on the way. In their final week of travel, the Highlanders were in northeast Georgia on Tuesday to meet Toccoa Falls College and were edged 2 - 1 by the Lady Eagles (3-3-1). However, GSC may have their most challenging match Friday as they head south to face Darton State College for a 7 p.m. start. The Cavaliers are ranked #2 in the country and are perfect on the year with a 7 - 0 record while the Highlanders are winless after eight tries.

Experience counts as sophomore Miriam Mast was the top runner for Gordon State College at Saturday's University of West Georgia Season Opener. The Thomaston native completed the 5K course in 24:44.09 and was 21st overall in the competition. Newcomers Brooke Reese and Melissa Draime also faired well as they managed a Top 30 finish in their first event of the season. As a team, GSC was a distant fourth in the 5K run. Point University (GA) won the event and garnered some help from former Highlander cross country runner Allison Mangham. She crossed the finish line at 22:23.85 for the Skyhawks and was 16th overall among the sea of runners. The women's team will continue to train and will return to collegiate competition on September 27 as they travel to Gainesville for the University of North Georgia Invitational. Go Gordon!

Missed Opportunities Costly For GSC

8. 27. 2014 - Women's Soccer

Two great scoring opportunities in the first half for Gordon State College were thwarted by Eagles' goalkeeper Hannah Smith. Her efforts kept the Highlanders off the board and Oxford College of Emory went on to defeat GSC 2 - 0 in Tuesday's non-conference match in Barnesville. Oxford's Meghan Spencer was credited with both goals in the victory by the visiting team. The Highlanders must now wait until Friday to claim their first win as they travel to Tifton for a 5 p.m. tilt against ABAC. It will also start the first of seven straight road contests for GSC. Of those seven, five will be important conference matchups during the three-week road tour. Unfortunately, the Highlanders will not return to their own playing surface until September 21 when they host South Georgia State College for a 6 p.m. match at the Athletic Complex. While they are on the road, you can chart the progress of the women's soccer team as the results of each match will be updated on the athletic website. Go Gordon!
