WASHINGTON - Georgetown University men's soccer freshman defender Cole Seiler (Anderson, S.C./Christ Church Episcopal School) was named to his second-consecutive BIG EAST Honor Roll on Monday as the No. 9/15 Hoyas prepare for the James Madison University Dukes on Tuesday evening in nonconference play. Junior goalkeeper Keon Parsa (West Hills, Calif./El Camino Real) was also honored by being named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week.
Seiler earned his second-consecutive nod to the honor roll after he and defense posted its fourth shutout of the season in the Rutgers victory. Seiler played a crucial role knocking the ball off of the goal line after it got past the keeper to keep it tied at zero. The freshman has played in seven games for the Blue & Gray this season.
Parsa had his second shutout of the season in his second start of the year. The goalkeeper managed six saves including one on a penalty kick to keep the game scoreless in the win over Rutgers on Saturday.
Georgetown is 8-0-1 on the season and off to its best start in program history. This past weekend, the Hoyas opened BIG EAST Conference play with a 1-0 overtime victory over the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights at North Kehoe Field. Freshman Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) scored the game winner in overtime to give Georgetown its first conference victory. The Hoyas have faced foes from a number of conferences including the ACC and the Big10. They recently went 2-0 in the BIG EAST/Ivy League Classic.
The Blue & Gray has appeared in four overtime contests this season with one going into double OT. The squad has a record of 3-0-1 in extra time.
Leading the way for Georgetown is Allen who has 13 points with six goals including a BIG EAST-high five game winners as well as one assist. Senior Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) 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-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. Parsa has appeared in two games, including the last victory, and has 11 saves along with two shutouts on the year.
In its last outing, JMU (3-3-1) tied the game in the first half after an early Loyola University (Md.) score, but allowed three-consecutive Greyhound goals. The Dukes found the back of the net late in the contest, but it was not enough as the squad fell by a score of 4-2. JMU has had wins over St. Bonaventure (6-1), UNC (1-0) and Hofstra (2-1) all coming at home this season.
The team is led by senior Paul Wyatt who has three goals and one assist on the year, while sophomore Josh Grant has contributed three goals. In the net, junior Colin Newcity has appeared in all seven games with 14 saves to his credit.
Georgetown is 0-3 all-time against the Dukes. The last meeting was in 1989 at JMU when the Hoyas fell, 2-1. The other two meetings came in 1985 and 1986 in Washington, D.C.
Kickoff at University Park is scheduled for 7 p.m. Live stats and a webcast will be available on the JMU athletic website.
