Sept. 15, 2007
Storrs, Conn. - The Georgetown University men's soccer team dropped a heartbreaking 1-0 decision at No. 4/2 Connecticut in the BIG EAST Conference opener for both teams on Saturday night. The Hoyas fall to 1-4-0 while UConn improves to 6-0 on the year.
UConn junior Akeem Priestley blasted a shot from 22 yards out that just made it into the upper right corner of the net in the 97th minute for the game-winner.
The Huskies posted six shots on goal while Georgetown was not credited with a shot on net.
GU senior goalkeeper Joe Devine posted five saves in defeat.
Tonight was the first time all season the Huskies were taken into extra time.
Georgetown will be in action again on Friday, September 21 at Cincinnati.
Brian Wiese on goalkeeper Joe Devine's play ... "Joe (Devine) played possibly the best game of his career. He was great. He made some special saves and the stop he made at the end of the first half was fantastic."
Wiese on the pace of the game ... "We defended a bit more than we wanted to, but on the other hand, I think we were sharp and organized. I think we gave ourselves a shot to get a result. I'll take responsibility for the fact that we might not have given ourselves as much of a chance to win."
Wiese on UConn ... "UConn is a legitimate No. 2 team in the country. They're at home in a big crowd in a great atmosphere. They're a veteran team with juniors and seniors. I don't think too many teams will score off them."
On the Hoyas' overall play and mindset ... "For the second game in a row we've shown a grit and fighting ability that I haven't seen since I been here. It's a true testament to the boy's heart.
"I think if we apply that fight to the rest of our schedule, we'll be just fine. Our sense now is if we score a goal, we're going to win the game. We just didn't create enough on Saturday."
