WASHINGTON - The No. 12 Georgetown University men's soccer squad (6-2-1) will close out nonconference play on Tuesday as the team travels to local-rival American University (3-3-2) for a 3 p.m. kickoff at Reeves Field. Additionally, junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) was named the BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week for his performance on Saturday.
Gomez made six saves in a double-overtime draw against No. 3 Creighton University on Saturday at Shaw Field. The junior managed the defense and came up with a number of game-saving stops to keep the match even in Georgetown's BIG EAST Conference opener.
The award marks his third-career honor as the conference's Goalkeeper of the Week and his second weekly award of the season. It's also the third weekly award for the Blue & Gray so far this year.
Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) leads the team in scoring with 14 points on six goals and two assists. Senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) is second with three goals and an assist, while freshman Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) has a goal and a team-high four assists for six points.
Gomez has five shutouts on the season, the Hoyas have six overall, and has tallied 34 saves so far this year.
American opened Patriot League play on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over Lehigh at home. Rookie forward Joe Iraola provided the offensive difference, notching two goals and earning Patriot League Rookie of the Week honors for his efforts. Additionally, senior Billy Knutsen was named the conference's Goalkeeper of the Week posting three shutouts in the past four games. The Eagles are 3-3-2 on the year.
After a one-year hiatus, the Eagles are back on the schedule where Georgetown is looking at a 23-29-3 series record. The last meeting was a 2-1 Hoya victory in 2011 under the lights of Multi-Sport Field. Neumann posted a goal and an assist in the win. In the last meeting at Reeves Field, Georgetown won, 3-2, in 2010 where Neumann scored the game winner in the 85th minute.
Tuesday's kickoff at American University is scheduled for 3 p.m., at Reeves Field. Live stats will be available and the game will be streamed live through the Eagles' athletic website.
