WASHINGTON - The No. 9 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will travel to Milwaukee, Wis., on Saturday to battle the No. 16 Marquette Golden Eagles (9-3-2, 5-0-1 BIG EAST) in an important BIG EAST Conference matchup. The game is the first in a two-game road swing for the Blue & Gray.
On Wednesday, the Blue & Gray dominated the DePaul University Blue Demons, 6-0. It included a two-goal, one-assist performance from senior captain Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock) as well as two assists from freshman midfielder Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard). Eight different players scored for the Blue & Gray.
Last Saturday, GU downed the No. 18 Butler University Bulldogs, 4-1, at Shaw Field. Neumann scored two goals and tallied an assist. Muyl 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.
Neumann leads the team in scoring with 25 points on 10 goals and five assists. Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) is second with 10 goals and three assists for 23 points, while Muyl has three goals and a team-high eight assists for 14 points.
Junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) has eight shutouts on the season, the Hoyas have 10 overall which ties the program record, and has tallied 41 saves so far this year.
The Golden Eagles are off to their best start ever in conference play as the only unbeaten team in the BIG EAST through six matches. MU also boasts the league's longest current unbeaten streak at five games heading into Saturday. Marquette won its first five conference games by one goal, including four 1-0 shutouts, prior to settling for a 0-0 draw at St. John's on Wednesday.
Eight different Marquette players have found the back of the net this season, led by redshirt sophomore C. Nortey's 16 points and team-best seven goals. Freshmen Louis Bennett and Coco Navarro II have combined for six goals and seven assists and are second and third on the squad with 10 and nine points, respectively.
Goalkeeper Charlie Lyon has posted 18 career shutouts, including three in a row and a total of eight clean sheets this season. He is currently the school's all-time career leader in goals against average (0.79) and boasts a 25-8-3 record in 36 starts between the posts.
Georgetown is 8-1-0 all-time against the Golden Eagles. Last season, the Hoyas downed MU, 2-1, at home snapping a 12-game win streak, and then defeated them 2-1 in overtime. In the last meeting in Milwaukee, the Hoyas won, 3-2, as Neumann hit goals in the 80th and 84th minutes to capture the victory.
The opening kickoff is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET, at Valley Fields. Live stats and a webcast will be available through the Golden Eagles' athletic website.
