WASHINGTON - Coming off of the most successful season in program history, the Georgetown University men's soccer program released a challenging slate for 2013. The Hoyas will play a number of top opponents out of conference and see foes new and old with the changes to the BIG EAST Conference.
"We've put together a great out of conference schedule and are excited about the new look of the BIG EAST with the additions of Creighton, Xavier and Butler," said Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese. "We're looking forward to challenges in the new conference and believe our schedule is one of the toughest in the country."
Last season, Georgetown made history with its first-ever trip to the College Cup and a national championship game appearance. GU finished the season with a record of 19-4-3 and a mark of 6-3-0 in the BIG EAST Conference. The squad was the third overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and the 19 wins were the most in program history. The Hoyas were the BIG EAST Blue Division Champions, the BIG EAST Championship runners-up and advanced to the national championship game in PKs in a thrilling game against the University of Maryland.
In 20 total games in 2013, including two exhibitions, the Hoyas will face seven 2012 NCAA Tournament qualifiers including three ranked among the top 16 seeded squads in No. 7 Marquette, No. 12 Creighton and No. 13 New Mexico. Creighton advanced to the 2012 College Cup before falling to Indiana in the semifinals.
The Blue & Gray will play 11 home games including five against conference opponents. The new format of the league has each team meeting once. GU will host newcomers Creighton (Sept. 28) and Butler (Oct. 19), as well as Seton Hall (Oct. 5), DePaul (Oct. 23) and Villanova (Nov. 8).
The Hoyas' BIG EAST road schedule includes Providence on October 9 and NCAA qualifiers Xavier (Oct. 12), Marquette (Oct. 26) and St. John's (Nov. 2). GU defeated the Red Storm and the Golden Eagles on the way to the 2012 BIG EAST Championship Game.
Georgetown will open the season with a pair of exhibition games against Old Dominion University and Syracuse University of August 18 and 24. The game against the Orange will be at North Kehoe Field where the Blue & Gray advanced past Syracuse on penalty kicks in the NCAA Tournament.
The nonconference schedule begins with a weekend on the West Coast. The Hoyas will face Cal on August 30 in Berkeley, before heading to Palo Alto on September 1 to play Stanford.
GU will open play at North Kehoe Field on September 6, playing host to West Virginia. This begins a four-game homestand which includes New Mexico (Sept. 8), Duquesne (Sept. 12) and James Madison (Sept. 15).
The Hoyas will participate in the BIG EAST/Ivy League Challenge traveling to Penn on Sept. 19, before hosting Princeton on Sept. 22. Georgetown will close out nonconference play at home on October 1 against American.
The BIG EAST Championship will once again be held at PPL Park in Philadelphia, Pa. The park is home to Major League Soccer's Philadelphia Union. The quarterfinals will be played on campus sites with the final four squads advancing to PPL Park.
Georgetown opens training on August 14. The Hoyas lost five seniors to graduation, but return a talented core and bring in a highly-ranked freshman class.
