MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. –The Georgia College soccer team (2-1-2) took the defending Gulf South Conference (GSC) Champions to the limit Wednesday, tying Lee University (1-2-2) 0-0 at Bobcat Field.

"These are really tough teams we've been playing lately," said head coach Hope Clark. "They've put us on the defensive. We really need to work on pushing through when we have the chance."  

The Bobcats battled to the scoreless draw thanks to a great effort from their defensive line. While Lee did put up 20 total shots, just a pair reached freshman goalkeeper Ashlee Graham (Decatur) as the rookie added her second career shutout.

The experienced defensive line of Allyease Schwartz (Roswell), Emily Wilhelm (Suwanee), Millie York (Hove, England) and Maddie Stephen (Norcross) helped keep the potent Flame offense off target all night.

Georgia College managed 12 total shots with nearly half of which-five-were shots on goal.

The Bobcats are back in action Saturday, Sept. 19 at 2 p.m. kicking off Peach Belt Conference (PBC) play at home against USC Aiken.
