WASHINGTON - Two Georgetown University men's soccer players were named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday after the Hoyas went 2-0 on the week. It is the third time this season that a Georgetown player has been honored and the second time two Hoyas have received recognition in one week.
Senior Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) scored his first-career hat trick on Sunday in Georgetown's 3-1 win over the University of Pennsylvania in the second game of the BIG EAST/Ivy League Classic. He managed three goals in three shots which included the game winner. The midfielder now has five goals in the last four games. Riemer is tied for the team lead in goals with five and ranks second in points with 10. He ranks second in the conference in points and is tied for first in goals with .62 per game.
Riemer was also named to the CollegeSoccerNews.com National Team of the Week and the TopDrawerSoccer.com National Team of the Week. It marks his first career honor from the BIG EAST Conference.
Freshman defender Cole Seiler (Anderson, S.C./Christ Church Episcopal School) was also named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll after helping the Blue & Gray to a 2-0 week allowing just one goal in two games. Seiler has started in six games for the Hoyas with season and has been a major part of the defense that has posted three total shutouts in eight games.
Georgetown is off to its best start in program history with a record of 7-0-1 overall and currently No. 12 in the NSCAA rankings and No. 18 in the SoccerAmerica National Poll.
The Blue & Gray will be back in action next weekend as the team begins BIG EAST Conference play with Rutgers. The game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
