Sophomore Scott Larrabee made a nifty move to get a shot off but missed wide and classmate Justin Kondos had two really good header opportunities in the first half but he couldn't connect on either one. Junior Sean Bellomy laced a solid shot from the top of the box but is was also wide.
All three of the Spartans' second half goals came in a 12 minute span off crosses from the wide areas.
Tebatso Manyama tallied the game's first goal in the 56th minute with taking a nice cross from Time Masters.
Three minutes later, Nirav Kadam found the back of the net with Masters picking up his second assist of the game.
At the 68:01 mark, Kadam notched his second marker of the game this time on a header with Manyama dishing out a helper.
GU senior goalie Joe Devine made three saves for the Hoyas.
Each time had two corner kicks while Georgetown outshot UNC-Greensboro, 8-7. The Blue & Gray will square off with Marshall on Sunday, September 2 at noon in the second game of the JMU tourney.
Head coach Brian Wiese on the Hoyas' overall performance... "For whatever reason we lacked the sharpness that I think we showed in the last two weeks of the preseason. I think as a group we were a bit heavy-legged. I think we had a great opportunity against a really good team and we didn't take it. Everyone is disappointed we didn't come away with a better result."
Wiese on Friday night's positives... "We created a lot of chances and we got solid performances by the two freshmen that started the game defender Mostafa Ebrahimnejad and Robert Burnett and they're going to continue to get better. We kept pushing and clawing even after a 3-0 deficit."
Wiese on some of the game's negatives...
"We certainly didn't handle the balls from the wide areas very well. They (UNCG) had three great crosses with all three goals coming on those balls. We had a 12-minute that just went array."
