Neumann's Late Goal Lifts No. 6/8 Hoyas Over Friars
The No. 6/8 Georgetown University men's soccer team used a late score to get the 1-0 victory over the Providence College Friars in BIG EAST Blue Division play on Wednesday at Glay Field. Georgetown is now 13-2-1 overall and 4-2 in the BIG EAST with two games remaining.

Neumann was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week after tallying three goals and two assists for an impressive eight points on the week. His point total helped him surpass the 100-career point mark making him just the fourth Hoya in program history to do so.

Neumann assisted on the game winner in the 85th minute in a 1-0 victory at American on Tuesday as the Hoyas closed out nonconference play. He followed that up with his second-career hat trick in an 8-0 victory over Seton Hall University on Saturday at Shaw Field. Neumann also posted an assist in the win.

It was the fourth weekly award for the Blue & Gray this season and Neumann's second of his career. Additionally, he was named to the National Team of the Week and the Team of the Week for his efforts.

Gomez earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for being a part of two shutouts last week. He tallied three saves in the pair of victories including two at American and one against Seton Hall. The nod to the honor roll was the second this season for Gomez and the fourth for the Blue & Gray. The goalkeeper has had six honor roll awards in his career.



Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) leads the team in scoring with 17 points on seven goals and three assists. Neumann is second with six goals and three assists for 15 points, while freshman midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) is third with two goals and a team-high five assists for nine points. Gomez has six shutouts on the season, the Hoya keepers have combined for eight total, and has tallied 31 saves so far this year.

The Friars are 7-1-2 on the season and 2-0-0 in BIG EAST Conference play. Senior back Anthony Baumann converted a penalty kick in the 77th minute to send the Friars to a 1-0 win at No. 11/14 St. John's on Saturday night at Belson Stadium. The Friar victory snapped the Red Storm's five-game home winning streak. The win was Providence's first over St. John's since the 1988 season and third overall in series history.

Georgetown is 12-12-1 all-time against the Friars, and 3-5 all-time under Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese. Last year, Neumann scored a goal in the 82nd minute to lift the Hoyas past Providence, 1-0, in Rhode Island.

The game is scheduled for Wednesday at 3 p.m. It will be the inaugural contest at Ray Treacy Track. Live stats will be available through Providence's athletic website.
