TWC faced Campbellsville University on Tuesday in what on paper looked to be a tough game. Campbellsville was 13-3 on the season and scoring freely averaging 3 goals a game. TWC on the other hand had only conceded one goal in their previous three games.
With inclement weather in the area the game kicked off on time, TWC started well, John Carrier and Luke Winter in the TWC midfield looked dangerous having a number of shots early in the half. Campbellsville was looking dangerous on the counter attack through left winger Casey Clarke and their prolific striker Jamie Allen. After 10 minutes the scores were level, then the rain hit. It was monsoon conditions for the next 10 minutes, TWC coped better and in the 31st minute took the lead when the ball was won by Luke Winter just outside the Campbellsville box, he played it into the path to Garrett Koon who slid the ball past the keeper and into the corner of the net. The rest of the half flew by and just before the break Luke Winter picked the ball up in the Campbellsville half ran with it and unleashed a low drive that skidded off the wet grass and into the corner of the goal. This was the last action of the first half and the score at the interval was TWC 2 Campbellsville 0.
Campbellsville started the second half on the front foot and pushed TWC back, but with resolute defending and solid goalkeeping the Bulldogs managed to keep Campbellsville off the score sheet. In the 85th minute TWC put the game to bed with a stunning left footed strike from Pedro Alba. Casey Johnstone picked the ball up on the right wing, took it to the byline dragged it back to Alba on the edge of the box, he took a touch and hit a rocket into the top corner of the net. The final score was TWC 3 Campbellsville 0. It was only the third time this season that Campbellsville had been kept scoreless.
TWC will take the momentum from this good win into their biggest regular season game in 15 years, they play Milligan at home on Saturday at 3pm and if TWC win they will be co-champions of the conference.
