Sept. 30, 2011
WASHINGTON - The No. 17 Georgetown University men's soccer team will have its first home BIG EAST contest on Saturday afternoon as the squad hosts the DePaul University Blue Demons. The Hoyas are currently 5-1-3 overall and 1-0-0 in BIG EAST play after defeating Villanova last weekend and tying No. 19 Penn State on Wednesday. Georgetown will kickoff against the Blue Demons at 1 p.m.
Georgetown downed the Villanova University Wildcats last weekend in the BIG EAST opener held at Bryn Mawr College due to poor field conditions. The Hoyas shutout the Wildcats, 2-0, as freshman Tyler Rudy (Olney, Md./Sherwood) and sophomore Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) both scored and freshman Tom Skelly (Albuquerque, N.M./Shattuck St. Mary's) tallied two assists. Later in the week, Georgetown tied the No. 19 Penn State Nittany Lions, 0-0, in double overtime.
The Hoyas have not lost in eight matches since the season-opening loss to Virginia Commonwealth University and have played in six overtime games so far this season.
Freshman goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll for the second-consecutive week posting the shutout and five saves in the win over Villanova. Gomez has 25 saves after eight games in the net with five shutouts to his credit.
The Hoyas are led by Neumann who has five goals and one assist on the year for 11 points. Junior captain Ian Christianson (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Christian Life) has three goals and one assist for seven points while Rudy rounds out the top three with three goals for six points.
The Hoya defense is currently posting a 0.45 GAA and has outscored opponents, 13-5.
DePaul is 3-5-1 on the season and 1-0 in BIG EAST play after winning its last two decisions. The Blue Demons defeated Northwestern, 4-0, and Seton Hall by a score of 2-1. DePaul is led by junior Antonio Aguilar who has four goals and two assists for 10 points on the year as well as freshman David Selvaggi who has notched five goals this season. Junior Joe Ferrari and sophomore Eric Sorbey have been splitting time in the net with Ferrari playing in six contests with 23 saves and Sorbey with 16 saves to his credit.
The Blue Demon defense has allowed 1.70 goals per game with one shutout.
Georgetown is 2-0-1 all-time against DePaul. The last meeting was at North Kehoe Field in 2009 in the BIG EAST Tournament when the squads tied, 2-2, in double overtime, but the Blue Demons advance on penalty kicks. The last regular-season meeting was in Washington, D.C., in 2008 where the Blue & Gray won, 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.
