WASHINGTON - The No. 19 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will travel to Philadelphia, Pa., on Thursday to battle the University of Pennsylvania Quakers in the first of two games in the BIG EAST/Ivy League Challenge. The Hoyas will face Penn on Thursday and host Princeton on Sunday at Shaw Field.
Last week, the team went 2-0 to move the overall record to 4-2 on the year.
Sophomore defender Keegan Rosenberry (Ronks, Pa./Lancaster Mennonite) was named the BIG EAST Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday and junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.
Rosenberry helped the Hoyas post 1-0 shutouts against both Duquesne and James Madison. He assisted on the game winner against Duquesne marking his first point of the season. Rosenberry played every minute of both contests and helped the GU defense post two shutouts as well as limiting James Madison to only one shot on goal. It was Rosenberry's first-career weekly award and the second weekly award the team has received this season as well as the first for defensive honors.
Gomez tallied two shutouts this week totaling four so far this season. He had seven total saves for the week including six against Duquesne. The award marked Gomez's first weekly award of the season and his fifth-career nod to the honor roll. Georgetown has had one other player earn a spot on the honor roll so far this season.
Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) leads the team in scoring with ten points on four goals and two assists. Senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) is second with two goals, while freshman Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted) is third with a goal and an assist for three points. Gomez has four shutouts on the season and has tallied 18 saves so far this year.
Penn is 2-0 at "home" this season, winning both of its matches played at Penn Park. In its two matches on Dunning-Cohen Champions Field, Penn outscored its opponents, 7-0. Last weekend, the Quakers ventured west to California, dropping a pair of one-goal matches to Cal Poly (3-2) and UC-Santa Barbara (2-1 in double overtime) to enter Thursday's match with a .500 record. The Quakers are 2-2 overall.
Georgetown is 2-1-1 all-time against Penn. The first meeting came during the 2001 season when the Hoyas defeated the Quakers 2-1 at home. The last three meetings have come in the Ivy League/BIG EAST Classic. In 2010, Georgetown lost 3-1 at North Kehoe Field and while in 2011 the squads tied, 1-1, in double overtime in Philadelphia. Last year, Andy Riemer scored a hat trick to lead the Blue & Gray past the Quakers at home.
The Hoyas will see familiar faces on the other side of the pitch with GU soccer alum Rudy Fuller at the helm of the Quaker squad and Neumann facing his younger brother, Alec, for the first time in their careers.
The game will be the first played at newly-renovated Rhodes Field. Live stats as well as a webcast will be available through the Quakers' athletic website. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET.
