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.

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!

Georgia Perimeter College proved to be too much for Gordon State College's women's soccer team on Friday as the Jaguars posted a 5 - 0 victory in Barnesville. On an extremely warm evening, GPC struck first in the scoring column with a goal in the first half at the 15:43 mark. A penalty kick and another Jaguar score three minutes later may have doomed the Highlanders as Georgia Perimeter took a 2 - 0 lead into the break.

The Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association announced its 2013 All-Region selections and the list included three Highlanders. Defender Paige Lievsay was named Second Team All-Region while midfielders Kiley Harris and Savannah Roberts were selected to Honorable Mention All-Region. These three student-athletes were instrumental in securing a second straight playoff appearance for the Gordon State College women's soccer team. In addition, they are among eleven freshmen who will return next year and form the nucleus of a very strong 2014 squad. Congratulations!
