WASHINGTON - The No. 17 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will host the James Madison University Dukes on Sunday afternoon at Shaw Field. The Hoyas are currently 3-2 on the season playing a tough slate including two ranked opponents. Sunday's contest is the last in a four-game homestand at Shaw Field.
On Friday, Georgetown downed Duquesne University Dukes, 1-0. Sophomore Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph) tallied a goal in the 27th minute and the defense stayed strong to hand the Dukes their first loss and goal conceded of the 2013 campaign. The game was moved to Friday after inclement weather canceled the contest on Thursday afternoon.
Last weekend, the team went 1-1 overall. The Hoyas defeated the West Virginia University Mountaineers, 3-0, on Friday. Allen scored two goals and assisted on the third to earn BIG EAST Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors. Freshman Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted) had a goal and an assist, and classmate Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) added a pair of helpers. The Blue & Gray fell to No. 9 New Mexico on Sunday in double overtime by a score of 1-0.
It was the first weekly award for the Blue & Gray this season and the fourth of Allen's career. As a freshman he was the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week on three occasions.
Allen leads the team in scoring with eight points on three goals and two assists. Senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) is second with two goals, while Goodman is third with a goal and an assist for three points. Junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) has three shutouts on the season and has tallied 17 saves so far this year.
James Madison is 3-1 on the season most recently defeating VMI, 6-1, on Wednesday. Junior forward Josh Grant leads the way with eight points on four goals. Senior midfielder Adam Bastidas has added a goal and two assists for four points on the year. In the net, sophomore goalkeeper Kyle Morton has a record of 3-1 with nine saves to his credit.
Georgetown is 1-3 all-time against JMU. Last year in Harrisonburg, Va., the Hoyas won by a score of 1-0. Midfielder Tom Skelly (Albuquerque, N.M./Shattuck St. Mary's) scored in the 62nd minute on an assist by Allen for the victory. It snapped a 15-game home win streak for the Dukes.
Live stats as well as a live online broadcast featuring Dan Helfrich will be available at www.GUHoyas.com. Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
