WASHINGTON - The No. 20 Georgetown University men's soccer team dropped its first game of the season Friday evening falling to the University of New Mexico (2-0-1), 3-1. The Hoyas rallied late in the second half, but couldn't finish the comeback moving to 2-1 on the season.
The Hoya offense was not as potent as it had been in previous games to start the contest. Early on, the Blue & Gray had a few solid looks but only one shot on goal. Seth C'deBaca (Albuquerque, N.M./Sandia Prep) fired from the middle of the box and UNM's keeper made the save. The Hoyas put the rebound back in, but an offside call disallowed the play.
Later in the half, Lobo Ryan Farquharson managed to find the back of the net making the score 1-0 going into the break. Georgetown was outshot 10-3 in the first and took three corners to New Mexico's six.
The Lobos added one more in the 52nd minute sliding it through the box and into the right corner of the net. Things got worse for the Hoyas just a minute later as UNM scored on a long shot just past the midline to make the score 3-0.
After a flurry of cards, including a red issued to Georgetown's C'deBaca, the Hoyas came back with a man-down tally in the 73rd minute. Alex Verdi (Ivyland, Pa./Germantown Academy) managed to get a foot on the ball after it bounced around in the box following a corner kick. Verdi shot from the left side and found the back of the net to pull within two goals.
The Hoyas' comeback ran out of time, however, as Georgetown wasn't able to recover falling 3-1.
The Blue & Gray was outshot 17-6 and took just five corner kicks to New Mexico's 10. Mark Wilber (Tijeras, N.M./Albuquerque Academy) took the loss in the net with three saves.
The Hoyas will play their second game of the invitational on Sunday as they take on Denver at 1 p.m. ET. Livestats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
