WASHINGTON - The No. 9 Georgetown University men's soccer squad (10-3-1, 3-1-1 BIG EAST) will host the DePaul University Blue Demons (4-8-2, 0-4-1 BIG EAST) on Wednesday at Shaw Field in a 3 p.m., BIG EAST Conference matchup. The Hoyas have just two regular season home contests remaining.
On Saturday, the Blue & Gray downed the No. 18 Butler University Bulldogs, 4-1, at Shaw Field. Senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) scored two goals and tallied an assist. Freshman midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) added a goal and an assist including the game winner.
For his efforts, Muyl was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week marking his first-career award. Additionally, Neumann earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll and the CollegeSoccerNews.com National Team of the Week.
Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) leads the team in scoring with 21 points on nine goals and three assists. Neumann is second with eight goals and four assists for 20 points, while Muyl has three goals and a team-high six assists for 12 points.
Junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) has seven shutouts on the season, the Hoyas have nine overall, and has tallied 40 saves so far this year.
The Blue Demons are 4-8-2 on the season and 0-4-1 in BIG EAST Conference Play. Last week, DePaul dropped a tough 3-1 decision at Seton Hall. Freshman midfielder Simon Megally scored his first-career goal, but it wasn't enough.
Michael Stankiewicz and Art Garza are both leading the way with two goals and two assists each for six points apiece. In total, 16 different players have tallied a point for the Blue Demons this season. In goal, Eric Sorby has a GAA of 1.49 with 73 saves on the year.
Georgetown is 3-0-1 all-time against DePaul. The last meeting was a 2-0 GU victory in 2011 where Tom Skelly (Albuquerque, N.M./Shattuck-St. Mary's) scored his first-career goal as a freshman. Prior to that, the squads met at North Kehoe Field in 2009 in the BIG EAST Tournament when they tied, 2-2, in double overtime, but the Blue Demons advance on penalty kicks.
Kickoff on Wednesday at Shaw Field is scheduled for 3 p.m. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
