WASHINGTON - The No. 11 Georgetown University men's soccer team used a huge offensive effort on Friday to win its home opener, 3-0, over the West Virginia University Mountaineers (1-1-1) at Shaw Field. Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) managed two goals and an assist while freshmen Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) and Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted) also got into the act. The Hoyas are now 2-1 on the season.
After pressing hard early on, West Virginia fell back as the GU offense heated up.
The first goal of the game came in the 14th minute as Austin Martz (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Mechanicsburg) played a crafty ball to classmate Keegan Rosenberry (Ronks, Pa./Lancaster Mennonite) on the right side. Rosenberry stayed onside and crossed it to a charging Allen. The forward angled the shot to the left corner, avoiding the reach of keeper Lee Johnston to make it 1-0.
Allen stayed hot scoring a second goal just five minutes later as Goodman lofted a ball over the defense and Allen found a way to hit a perfect shot into the top right corner. The pass came from Muyl who managed his first-career assist.
Despite the Mountaineers getting some late looks, the teams went into the break with the Hoyas leading, 2-0.
The second half was much of the same as the Blue & Gray continued to pressure. WVU was also hindered as a second yellow in the 56th minute resulted in the squad playing a man down for the remainder of the contest.
Allen and the rest of the offense continued to get chances, but the third goal didn't come until the 63rd minute. Goodman managed the first goal of his career on a classmate connection. Allen's pass went to Muyl who sent the ball to Goodman in the middle of the box. The midfielder took a quick touch past Johnston to make it 3-0.
"Bakie sees the game really well and weights his passes right," said Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese. "On that second goal, that wasn't just an assist, it was a really good assist. His performance wasn't a surprise to us, we've been seeing that since day one."
From that point on, the game continued to be physical as Wiese began to mix up the lineup giving experience to a number of players. The reserves held on as the Hoyas finished the 90 minutes with a 3-0 victory.
Georgetown outshot West Virginia, 15-10, and took four corner kicks while WVU was awarded five. Johnston had the loss in the net with four saves and junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) was awarded the win with one save on the afternoon.
Georgetown will host No. 9 New Mexico on Sunday at Shaw Field. Live stats as well as a new and improved broadcast featuring Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser will be available at www.GUHoyas.com. Kickoff is scheduled for noon.
