Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University men's soccer team dropped a 1-0 BIG EAST decision to visiting Villanova on Sunday afternoon at North Kehoe Field. The Hoyas fell to 2-7-0 overall, 1-4-0 in league action.

Villanova (8-2-0, 2-1-0 BE) got on the board in the sixth minute. The Wildacts had a free kick from 25 yards out. Sean Mergenthal tapped the ball to Chris Christian who neatly placed a ball into traffic in front of the net. Senior Matt Sleece was able to get his head on it and re-direct it for his first goal of the season.

Georgetown best chance to tie came with just 15:20 to go in regulation. Freshman Seth C'deBaca (Albuquerque, N.M./Sandia Prep) played a ball to overlapping Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola H.S. of Los Angeles) on the left wing. Larrabee made a nifty move past a defender before crossing the ball towards a group of players who filled the six yard box. The ball seemed to slip through the goal mouth and just past the back post.

Villanova's Jason Friel made five saves on the afternoon to pick up his seventh victory of the season. Hoya senior Joe Devine (Exton, Pa./The Haverford School) collected two saves.

Both teams had four corner kicks while the Goyas held a slim 18-14 advantage in shots.

The Hoyas have now lost five games by the score of 1-0.

"We're looking to catch a break," said second-year head coach Brian Wiese. "We're creating opportunities but we're just not being opportunistic. The team is being tested but there's still a lot of soccer to be played. The lack of scoring certainly isn't for a lack of effort and training. We just need that break."

Georgetown will hit the pitch again on Saturday, October 6 when GU hosts Providence in BIG EAST play. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
