Scott Larrabee had a good look at the goal.

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's soccer squad had its chances against the No. 8 University of California Golden Bears (1-0-0) Friday evening at North Kehoe Field. Despite a number of good looks, however, the Hoyas struggled to finish resulting in a 2-0 loss and dropping them to 0-1-1 on the season.
"We played well, but the defining moment of the game was the deflection in the second half," said Head Coach Brian Wiese. "I felt good after the first half but when you're playing a good team you need to make the most of the opportunities and we didn't."
The Hoyas came out fired up and less than ten minutes in, Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola High School of Los Angeles) got behind the defense and had an open shot but keeper David Bingham made the save to keep it scoreless.
In the 18th minute, Hector Jimenez sent a cross to the top of the box and after a quick dummy All-American Andrew Wiedeman shot it past Georgetown keeper Matthew Brutto (Warrington, Pa./Central Bucks South) to make it 1-0.
In the 37th minute Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell) had another open shot but once again Bingham made the save.
The Blue & Gray outshot the Bears, 7-6, in the first half and posted three corner kicks to Cal's one. Brutto had one save in the period while Bingham posted three.
After a solid first half, the Hoyas once again came out strong in the second but a quick second goal from Cal stopped any momentum. In the 49th minute, Davis Paul shot from the top of the box which deflected back off of a GU defender. The ball then hit the crossbar and bounced off of the back of Brutto into the net to make it 2-0.
For the remainder of the contest the Hoyas fought to get back in it as the game became physical. However, despite a number of good attempts and corner kick opportunities for the Hoyas the end result was still a score of 2-0 at the final whistle.
Georgetown was outshot 13-12, but took four more corner kicks. Bingham had six saves on the day while Brutto registered three.
"We're still not right where we want to be," said Wiese. "But when you look, our shots were even and we out-cornered them but their keeper made some good saves. We're still finding our rhythm."
The Hoyas will have little rest as they battle No. 19 UCLA on Sunday at North Kehoe Field. The game will be the second in a doubleheader with the women who play Santa Clara at 11 a.m. The men's kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Live stats and Hoyavision will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
