WASHINGTON - The No. 19 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will host the Princeton University Tigers on Sunday in the second of two games in the BIG EAST/Ivy League Challenge. Sunday also marks the Hoyas' Alumni Day as well as an appearance by Local.Sustainable. Georgetown.
On Thursday, the Blue & Gray downed the University of Pennsylvania, 3-0, in Philadelphia, Pa. Underclassmen played a significant role in the victory with freshman midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) scoring a goal and an assist, as well as goals by freshman midfielder Bakie Goodman (Sarasota, Fla./Pine View School for the Gifted) and sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's). It was Georgetown's fifth shutout of the season moving the Hoyas to 5-2 overall.
On Monday, 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.
Allen leads the team in scoring with 12 points on five goals and two assists. Senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) is second with two goals and an assist, while Goodman has two goals and an assist for five points. Gomez has four shutouts on the season and has tallied 22 saves so far this year.
Princeton is 1-3 on the season with a 1-0 victory against Seton Hall. On Wednesday, Loyola (Md.) scored a pair of late goals to down the Tigers, 2-1. Sophomore forward Nico Hurtado and sophomore forward Thomas Sanner are leading the team in points with a goal and an assist each. Senior goalkeeper Seth MacMillan has one shutout on the season with 11 saves to his credit.
The Hoyas hold a 4-0-1 series advantage after winning, 1-0, last year in New Jersey. Allen scored the winning goal in the 14th minute. In the last meeting at Shaw Field, the Blue & Gray won, 3-0, with Ian Christianson notching two goals and an assist. Georgetown is 2-0 at home against the Tigers.
Sunday is alumni day for the Blue & Gray. Additionally, "Local. Sustainable. Georgetown." will be in attendance in conjunction with the Office of Sustainability and CSJ. "Local. Sustainable. Georgetown." supports Hoya and Metro DC water, food, health, housing and education initiatives by raising awareness on these issues. Georgetown and Princeton will join over 100 NCAA college soccer teams supporting USA water, food, health, housing and education initiatives this 2013 NCAA fall soccer season.
