WASHINGTON - The No. 3/9 Georgetown University men's soccer team will finish up non-conference play on Tuesday afternoon as the squad hosts the Lehigh University Mountain Hawks at 3 p.m., at North Kehoe Field. The Hoyas are currently 10-2-1 overall and 2-2-0 in BIG EAST play marking their best start in program history as well as having the highest ranking in program history, but have dropped their last two games.
The Hoyas are coming off of 3-0 loss at the University of Notre Dame last weekend. It marked Georgetown's second-consecutive top-ten opponent after the Blue & Gray fell to the No. 2/2 University of Connecticut, 2-1, on Wednesday.
Leading the way for Georgetown is forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) 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 12 points on six goals, while junior forward Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) has 11 points with two goals and a team and conference-high seven assists.
In the net, Parsa has played in six games with 31 saves and three shutouts to his credit.
The Mountain Hawks fell to the Lafayette University Leopards, 1-0, this past weekend. The decisive moment in the 109th meeting between the two teams was a free kick by the Leopards in the 66th minute that found the back of the Lehigh net to give Lafayette the 1-0 victory. Junior goalkeeper Ciaran Nugent stopped four shots on the night, as the defense was able to clear most of the Lafayette attempts out of the zone, keeping the Leopards' scoring opportunities to a minimum.
The Mountain Hawks are led by sophomore Brian Suchoski who has scored twice on the season for a team-high four points. Senior Matt Weaver has also found the back of the net, a game-winner in the 89th minute against Penn State earlier in the year. Nugent leads a strong Mountain Hawk defense that has limited opposing offenses to, at most, one goal six times this season, as the net minder has registered 37 saves on the season, posting a 1.87 goals against average and a .712 save percentage.
Georgetown is 1-0-0 all-time against the Mountain Hawks. The last meeting was during the 1997 season when the Blue & Gray won 6-1 at home. The Hoyas are 8-0-1 this season in nonconference play.
Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a video-only webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
