Scott Larrabee and Georgetown fell 1-0 at No. 8 SMU on Sunday.
Sept. 9, 2007
Dallas, Texas - The Georgetown University men's soccer team fell 1-0 to eighth-ranked SMU on Sunday afternoon in the final game of SMU-Mi Cocina Classic. The Hoyas fell to 1-3.
The game was delayed more than an hour due to lightning but the Mustangs struck first in the 34th minute when junior transfer Gabe Arredondo notched his second goal of the season. On a counter attack, SMU carried the ball over midfield where Bruno Guardo and Leone Cruz moved the ball forward. Guardo played the ball toward the top of the box and Arredondo took the pass and laced a low shot past Hoya goalkeeper Joe Devine's (Exton, Pa./The Haverford School) outstretched hands.
Georgetown junior Sean Bellomy (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit College Prep) had a great chance in the fourth minute. After a long kick ahead by Devine, Bellomy corralled the ball in traffic near the top of the box, turned, found a crease in the defense and was able to fire a low shot from 12 yards that was stopped Steve Sandbo.
SMU held a 9-3 advantage in shots on goal.
Devine was credited with eight saves, two shy of his career high.
"We drew the very back line deep today so SMU was on the offensive a lot but all of their shots were from distance," said head coach Brian Wiese.
"We've gotten much better in the first four games. Our defending has improved night and day since the season started. I felt this was the best game the boys played yet. We've made tremendous strides since day one."
The Hoyas, who play their first seven games on the road, next travel to Storrs, Connecticut to take on the UConn Huskies Saturday, September 17 at 7 p.m.
