GAME HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL THURSDAY AT 2 P.M.
So you may not have heard, but the Georgetown University men's soccer team will be playing for a share of the BIG EAST Championship today at 2 p.m. at North Kehoe Field against the No. 6 Connecticut Huskies. If you are an avid reader of GUHoyas.com, you probably read the advance yesterday. However, here is some additional info about today's game...
First of all, a win or a tie will clinch a share of the BIG EAST Blue Division Championship. The Hoyas have won the regular season championship just once in program history in 1994.
GU just moved into the national rankings again this week with its eight-game win streak. Despite a number of victories, the Blue & Gray has been a bit of a dark horse during conference play.
Additionally, the team has started honoring favorite professors at games. The players have been nominating their favorite professors to come to games and sit on the sidelines as honorary captains. It's been really nice to see how many professors have taken an interest in our great student-athletes. Today we'll have three professors in attendance as honorary captains.
With this important game slated for 2 p.m. on campus, I urge all staff, faculty and students to try and sneak away to watch some of the contest. It should be a great game between two ranked teams and it is one of the most important games to have been played here on campus in years.
So Hoya fans, here is your mission. If you're sitting at your desk around 2 p.m., click over to Gametracker to watch the scoreline or buy the webcast to hear the ramblings of alums Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser. If you're on campus, sneak away like you're going to Snaxa and head over to North Kehoe for a game that I promise will be exciting!
Let's go soccer!
