The No. 17 Georgetown University men's soccer team posted its sixth shutout of the season with a 2-0 victory over the DePaul University Blue Demons (3-6-1, 1-1-0 BIG EAST) on Saturday afternoon at North Kehoe Field. The Hoyas tallied an early goal and added a security score in 90th minute to improve to 6-1-3 overall and 2-0-0 in the BIG EAST Conference.

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.
