College Park, Md. - The Georgetown University men's soccer team had a two-game winning streak snapped in a 2-1 loss to the University of Maryland on Tuesday night. It was the Hoyas' eighth one-goal loss of the season. GU fell to 5-10 on the year.
Georgetown trailed 2-0 after 55 minutes but sliced the deficit to 2-1 with 25 minutes remaining on Sean Bellomy's (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit Prep) first goal of the season. Freshman Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell) and Bellomy hooked up with a perfect give and go for Diggs' second assist and team-best eighth point.
Georgetown held a 3-2 advantage in shots on goal while Maryland had six corner kicks to the Hoyas' three.
Ten minutes in, Scott Larrabee (Palos Verdes Estates, Calif./Loyola High School of Los Angeles) crossed a beautiful ball from the left wing that made it through the six yard box where Seth C'deBaca (Albuquerque, N.M./Sandia Prep) headed it, narrowly missing the far post.
Off a Maryland goal kick, senior midfielder Stephen King had the Terps' best chance in the first half at the 15:50 mark ripping a right-footed shot just wide of the left post.
Maryland struck first with just 1:55 to go in the first half, off a corner. King booted the corner towards the center of the net where freshman Sean Flatley lofted a header into the upper right corner of the goal. It was Flatley's first career goal.
It marked the seventh time this season that GU trailed at intermission.
Just 9:25 into the second half, Maryland upped its lead to 2-0 when King crossed a ball from the left wing to the center of the six yard box. The cross slipped through a group of bodies at the top of the six where senior Aki Kadotani was able to make two-touches and hit a ball past GU goalkeeper Joe Devine (Exton, Pa./The Haverford School).
Fourteen minutes later, the Hoyas sliced the lead to 2-1. From midfield, Sean Bellomy (Dallas, Texas/Jesuit Prep) played a through ball to Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell). Diggs crossed a ball low back to Bellomy who one-timed a touch into the net for his first goal of the season and third goal of his career.
"I am happy with the way our team played tonight," said head coach Brian Wiese. "I feel that we are beginning to come together at the right time of the season. Maryland is always a tough team and this (Ludwig Field) is a difficult place to play, so even though I am not satisfied with the result, I am delighted in the overall effort of our guys."
The Hoyas host BIG EAST foe Pittsburgh on Saturday, October 27 at 1 p.m. on North Kehoe Field. The men's soccer program will host Alumni Weekend with its annual three-on-three tournament. Alumni activities begin at 9:30 a.m.
