Men's Soccer to Play Seton Hall on Wednesday Evening

Oct. 6, 2009

WASHINGTON - The No. RV/19 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will travel to South Orange, N.J. Wednesday evening for a 7 p.m. matchup against the Seton Hall Pirates. The Hoyas are currently 3-2 in the BIG EAST tying them for third in the Blue Division with Notre Dame. Georgetown suffered a tough 1-0 loss to No. RV/13 Connecticut this past weekend.

Georgetown is 6-3-1 overall, posting seven shutouts already this year and the most overall wins of the eight Blue Division squads. Led by a veteran defense and a pair of seasoned goalkeepers, Georgetown's strength has been its defensive pressure which will be a key against the offensive-minded Pirates. Offensively, the Hoyas have had a balanced attack with 10 different players scoring points so far this season.

Mark Wilber (Tijeras, N.M./Albuquerque Academy) leads the league in both goals against average (0.20) and save percentage (.950). As a team, Georgetown leads the conference in shutouts with an average of 0.70 while also ranking second in goals allowed (0.50) and goals against average (0.49).

Seton Hall enters the contest with a record of 1-3-1 in the BIG EAST and 4-5-1 overall. Despite sitting in seventh place in the Blue Division, the Pirates are a dangerous squad on offense ranking 59th in the nation in goals per game (1.6). Junior Andrew Walker leads the squad with six goals and two assists for 14 points, while classmate Dritan Sela has scored five goals and two assists for 12 points so far this season.

Georgetown is 10-14-2 all-time against Seton Hall. Their last meeting was last season at North Kehoe Field when the squads battled to a double overtime 1-1 draw. Under Head Coach Brian Wiese the Hoyas are 1-1-1 against the Pirates.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Owen T. Carroll Field. Live stats and a pay-per-view webcast will be available through the Seton Hall website.
