WASHINGTON - The No. 13 Georgetown University men's soccer team dropped a tough, 1-0, decision to the West Virginia University Mountaineers (6-4-1, 2-1-0 BIG EAST) on Saturday evening in Morgantown, W. Va. The teams were scoreless for much of the game, but an unfortunate rebound allowed WVU to find the back of the net late in the contest. Georgetown is now 7-2-3 on the season and 2-1-0 in BIG EAST play.
In the 82nd minute, Franck Tayou had a shot at the net and Georgetown freshman goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) made the diving save. However, the ball came off of Gomez's gloves and to the feet of Uwem Etuk who fired it back into the crossbar where it ricocheted into the net to make it 1-0 in favor of the Mountaineers. This would stand as the game winner.
The first half was quiet for both squads with the Blue & Gray having the only two looks at the net and forcing keeper Justin Holmes to make two saves. Gomez didn't have a save, but stopped some tough crosses to keep the Mountaineers at bay.
The Mountaineers outshot the Hoyas, 7-4, and took four corners to Georgetown's three in the first.
West Virginia had two solid opportunities to score the go-ahead goal early in the second, but the defense thwarted both attempts. On offense, Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) had the best look of the evening for Georgetown, but his one-on-one with the keeper out of his net went just wide.
The Hoyas were outshot, 17-12, and took just six corner to West Virginia's 12. Both keepers tallied two saves in the net.
The game marked the Blue & Gray's first road loss of the season and snapped Georgetown's unbeaten streak at 10 games.
Georgetown will continue its road trip on Wednesday with a 7 p.m., BIG EAST matchup with the Seton Hall University Pirates. Live stats and a webcast will be available at the SHU athletic website.
