Georgetown Posts Seventh Shutout of the Season in a 2-0 Victory Over Rutgers
The Georgetown University men's soccer team made it three in a row on Sunday defeating the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights, 2-0, at North Kehoe Field. For the second-consecutive game, the Blue & Gray scored the game-winner early on as the Hoyas posted their seventh shutout of the season and snapped RU's three-game win streak. With the victory, Georgetown improves to 6-2-1 overall and 3-1 in BIG EAST play.

On Monday, senior midfielder Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) and freshman Cole Seiler (Anderson, S.C./Christ Church Episcopal School) were both named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.

Riemer scored his first-career hat trick on Sunday in Georgetown's win over Penn in the second game of the BIG EAST/Ivy League Classic. He managed three goals in three shots which included the game winner. Seiler 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.

Leading the way for Georgetown is freshman Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) who has 11 points with five goals including four game winners as well as one assist. Riemer has 10 points on five goals, while junior Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) has six points with a goal and a team and conference-high four assists.

In the net, sophomore Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) has played in seven games with 23 saves and two shutouts to his credit.

Rutgers is sitting at 3-2 on the season after winning its last two matches. The Scarlet Knights downed the Princeton University Tigers, 2-0, two weeks ago led by a pair of goals from freshman Mael Corboz. Last weekend, RU defeated the College of Charleston by a score of 1-0. Junior Kene Eze scored for the Scarlet Knights for his first goal of the year.

 

 

Rutgers is led by Corboz, the younger brother of Georgetown women's soccer sophomore Daphne Corboz, with two goals and one assist on the season for five points. Eze and freshman Mitchell Taintor are tied for second with one goal each. Senior Kevin McMullen has appeared in all five games in the net with 19 saves to his credit.

Georgetown is 9-6-2 all-time against the Scarlet Knights as Saturday's game will be BIG EAST cross-divisional play. The last meeting was in 2008 in New Jersey where the Hoyas won, 2-1, in overtime. The last meeting at North Kehoe Field was in 2007 where the Blue & Gray lost by a score of 1-0.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
