Eagles beat Owls on last minute shot

October 30, 2006

On Saturday, October 28th the Kennesaw State Owls hosted their cross town rivals the Emory Eagles. Kennesaw lost 12 to 11 in a nail biter with the game winning goal scored with only twenty-eight seconds left in the game. Both teams were playing up to regular season intensity. The Owls opened the game quickly holding a 3-2 lead after the first quarter but trailed at halftime 6-4. Much to the pleasure of Coach Byers, the Owls answered the bell in the second half and pushed the Eagles to the limit. Kennesaw seemed to have their opponents on the ropes but the Eagles clawed back after a three goal deficit midway in the fourth quarter. Offensive spark plugs for the Owls included Robert Witt and Jeremy Douthit both scoring three goals apiece and adding an assist apiece. Freshman Tim Minick scored two goals on the day. Strong individual performances were turned in by long stick midfielder Zack Statham and middie Isom White.

Kennesaw continues to look for the right combination on their midfields during the fall season and will finish their evaluation of new talent this Saturday against UGA and Georgia College and State University. Games will be 12:00, 2:00 and 4:00 at the intramural fields on the KSU Campus. Come out and see the “Fastest Game on Two Feet” played by your own Kennesaw State Owls.
