"It was a hard fought game on both sides," said GU second-year head coach Brian Wiese. "Marshall is athletic and they really competed. They didn't make it easy. I think we had a bit more depth and it really paid off considering we had a quick turnaround from Friday night's game."
Neither team was able to create a real good scoring chance in the first half.
In the second half, with about 14 minutes to go in regulation, Georgetown senior goalie Joe Devine (Exton, Pa./The Haverford School) had to make a full length dive to make a fingertip save off a Marshall shot.
Less than two minutes later, the Hoyas struck.
Bellomy switched fields with a ball to the wing and C'deBaca, who came off the bench, placed a cross to the far post that Diggs headed past Marshall goaltender Brad Kennedy.
Georgetown held an 8-7 edge in shots and 6-5 advantage in corner kicks.
"I think we had a better overall performance today, we were much sharper and alert," said Wiese. I think Joe (Devine) looked much more comfortable and settled. He did a great job handling crosses and organizing the guys.
"Lenny (Coleman) and Alex (Pangraze) played great on the back line and Seth really gave us a spark," added Wiese.
Georgetown will hit the pitch again on Friday, September 7 when the Hoyas travel to Dallas, Texas and take on Tulsa at 6 p.m. eastern time in a tournament hosted by SMU.
