Sept. 10, 2008

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The No. 20/23 Georgetown University men's soccer team continued its unbeaten streak Wednesday afternoon with a 1-0 win over the Stony Brook Seawolves (1-3-1) at North Kehoe Field. With the victory, the Hoyas improve to 5-0 on the season after holding opponents scoreless for all 450 minutes of play.

Both teams had their chances in the first half with the Hoyas outshooting the Seawolves, 9-4. Jose Colchao (Fairfax, Va./Lake Braddock Secondary School) came close with a header that went high four minutes in and a another shot 12 minutes later. Mark Zeman (Western Springs, Ill./Lyons Twp.) also added a pair of shots on goal later in the half.

The second was more of the same as both teams took shots but the defense and keepers stayed strong. Just as the Hoyas were picking up momentum, Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola HS of LA) fired the ball from the top left corner of the box. Seawolf keeper Dawid Ditrich jumped for the save and got his fingertips on the ball but on the deflection, it hit his body and ricocheted into the net putting the Hoyas up one.

"It was just a matter of being patient and hoping we didn't give anything away," said Head Coach Brian Wiese. "To their credit, they had their chances and could have snuck a lead on us on a couple of occasions, but I think our guys kept their composure and continued working at it."

Stony Brook went on the attack for the remainder of the game but the GU defense and keeper Matt Brutto (Warrington, Pa./Central Bucks South) stopped each advance making the final 1-0.

Georgetown outshot Stony Brook 14-8 and took six corner kicks to the Seawolves' one.

The win keeps the Hoyas undefeated with a program-best 5-0 record to open the season making it the top start since 1998. It is also the most shutouts in a row in program history as GU is yet to concede a goal so far this season.



The Hoyas begin BIG EAST play on Saturday at No. RV/T25 Providence which is 1-0-1 on the year, but has not played in a week due to a cancellation on the schedule.

"We have to quickly re-focus, for as good as a start it's been, we are suddenly in the league now. Providence is on Saturday and we're starting from square one again. We have to make sure that we're ready," said Wiese.
