WASHINGTON - The No. 3/9 Georgetown University men's soccer team will continue BIG EAST Conference play on Wednesday afternoon as the squad hosts the No. 2/2 University of Connecticut Huskies at 3 p.m., at North Kehoe Field. The Hoyas are currently 10-0-1 overall and 2-0-0 in BIG EAST play marking their best start in program history as well as having the highest ranking in program history.
The Hoyas are coming off of 3-1 victory at the University of Pittsburgh last weekend. Freshman forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) scored two goals including the game winner, while junior forward Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) posted a goal and two assists.
On Monday, Allen was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week and junior goalkeeper Keon Parsa (West Hills, Calif./El Camino Real) earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.
Allen had five points in a 2-0 week for Georgetown. He assisted on the game-winning goal in a 1-0 win at James Madison, which snapped a 15-game home unbeaten streak, while also scoring two at Pitt. He is leading the conference with six game winners this season.
Allen's award marked the fourth overall weekly honor for Georgetown. Allen is the only player this season to earn three weekly awards.
Parsa made 10 saves over two games and posted a shutout for the Blue & Gray. He had five saves in the 1-0 victory at JMU as well as five saves in the victory at Pitt. It marked Parsa's first-career BIG EAST weekly honor.
Leading the way for Georgetown and the BIG EAST is Allen who has 18 points with eight goals including six game winners as well as two assists. Senior forward Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) has 10 points on five goals, while Neumann has 10 points with two goals and a team-high six assists.
In the net, Parsa has played in four games with 21 saves and three shutouts to his credit.
Connecticut (9-0-1, 2-0-0 BIG EAST) has allowed just one goal in the last five games. Sophomore goalkeeper Andre Blake is sporting a 0.30 goals against average and a .897 save percentage. He's accumulated six shutouts on the season.
Senior midfielder Carlos Alvarez has notched points in six-straight games. In the past six contests, Alvarez has tallied five goals and six assists for 16 points. He currently leads UConn in assists and points. Alvarez was recently named College Soccer News National Player of the Week after notching a goal and three assists to lead the Huskies to a 2-0 week with a 2-0 victory at Yale and a 2-1 result at home over Notre Dame.
The BIG EAST Blue Division has been exceptional to start the season. Along with UConn and Georgetown, No. 9 Marquette remains undefeated at 10-0-0. No. 10 Notre Dame stands at 8-2-0 with both losses coming to BIG EAST opponents.
Georgetown is 9-13-3 all-time against the Huskies. Last year, the squads battled to a 0-0 double overtime tie in Storrs, Conn., in front of a sellout crowd. The last meeting at North Kehoe Field was a 1-0 Hoya victory which gave the Blue & Gray the BIG EAST Blue Division Regular Season title. Neumann scored the game winner in that contest.
Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
