Chandler Diggs recorded a goal and an assist in GU's win over American on Tuesday.
Oct. 16, 2007
Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University freshmen Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell) scored the game-winning overtime goal with 4:05 to go in the first OT session to lift the Hoyas to a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over cross town-rival American University today on North Kehoe Field. GU improves to 4-9-0 on the year.
Georgetown has a 5-1-1 record over the Eagles in the last seven meetings between the schools.
In the 40th minute, American's Jake VanYahres opened the scoring when he stole the ball from the GU defense as the Hoyas were trying to play the ball back to their goalkeeper. Van Yahres controlled possession and found the back of the net.
Georgetown best chance to tie in the first half came with three minutes to go. Junior Hunter Joslin (Seattle, Wash./Eastlake) played a beautiful ball from the right wing to the far post but neither Sean Bellomy (Dallas, Texas/Jesuti College Prep) nor Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola HS of Los Angeles) could get a piece of the ball to re-direct it into the net.
Georgetown tied the game at 1-1 six minutes into the second half when Larrabee netted his second goal of the season. Freshman Seth C'deBaca (Albuquerque, N.M./Sandia Prep) played the ball forward to the right wing. Diggs hit a bending cross that made its way through traffic where Larrabee one-timed a low shot past AU goalkeeper Chris Sedlak, who got caught up in the mix of bodies near the near post.
Just past the half way point of the opening OT, D'deBaca crossed a ball from the right wing to the far post that Diggs was able to head home for the victory.
Hoya senior goalie Joe Devine made three saves to earn his second win of the season.
"We looked tired today and we didn't play that well but we found a way to win and that's the most important thing," said GU head coach Brian Wiese.
"This is a big win in that it gives us some confidence to score heading into a very important game at Marquette on Saturday.
"We had the guys who give us the best chance to score late in the game and Diggs and C'deBaca and Larrabee did just that," said Wiese.
Diggs recorded a goal and an assist, marking the first time this season a Hoya player recorded both a goal and an assist in the same match.
C'deBaca's two assists marked the first time a Hoya dished out two assists in a game this season.
The last time Georgetown won an overtime game at home was last season in the season-finale, a 1-0 win over Marquette.
