WASHINGTON - The No. RV/21 Georgetown University men's soccer team will host the No. 6/6 University of Connecticut Huskies (10-1-4, 4-0-3 BIG EAST) for the final home regular season BIG EAST matchup Wednesday afternoon at North Kehoe Field. The Hoyas are 10-4-1 overall and 6-1 in conference play after downing Marquette, 6-2, on Saturday.
The Hoyas and Huskies have both clinched BIG EAST Tournament berths with the winner of Wednesday's game clinching a share of the BIG EAST Blue Division championship.
Georgetown has won its last eight games including five conference foes and a ranked squad. In the matchup against Marquette, Georgetown gave an own goal early in the game, but took the lead with two first-half scores from sophomores Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) and Ian Christianson (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Christian Life). Marquette tied the contest early in the second half, but the Hoyas put away the game for good with four goals within 20 minutes from Christianson, freshman Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North), and two from senior Chandler Diggs (Coppell, Texas/Coppell).
For his efforts, Christianson was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll. The midfielder posted a pair of goals and an assist in the Marquette victory.
Neumann is leading the Hoyas with 25 points notching nine goals and seven assists on the season. He has three game winners to his credit and has scored nine goals in just 11 shots on the net. Senior Jose Colchao (Fairfax, Va./Lake Braddock Secondary School) and Christianson follow Neumann with 14 points. Colchao has five goals and four assists, while Christianson has recorded four goals and six assists for the year.
Georgetown will be fighting for the BIG EAST Blue Division title on Wednesday. The Hoyas sit atop the Blue Division with 18 points from six wins and a loss in the league. However, the Huskies are close behind with four victories and three ties for 15 points.
UConn tied its last game against Notre Dame on Saturday, 0-0, in double overtime. Tony Cascio leads the offense with 23 points on nine goals and five assists, followed by Carlos Alvarez, who has 20 points on four goals and 12 assists. Stephane Diop has seven goals. Josh Ford is leading the squad in the net with 50 saves in 15 games and a GAA of 0.26.
Georgetown is 8-13-2 all-time against UConn. Last season, on October 3, the Hoyas lost to the Huskies, 1-0, in Storrs, Conn. The Blue & Gray ended in a 0-0 stalemate the last time they faced the Huskies at home on October 11, 2008.
Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m., at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
