WASHINGTON - The No. 6/8 Georgetown University men's soccer team will close out regular season play on Saturday in its second game of the week against the Seton Hall University Pirates (6-10-0, 2-5-0 BIG EAST). The contest is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., at North Kehoe Field with a ceremony at halftime honoring the five seniors.
The Hoyas have clinched a BIG EAST Tournament berth and are jockeying for seeding in the final game. The Pirates are still in contention for a tournament berth.
On Wednesday, the Blue & Gray defeated Seton Hall, 2-0, in the first of the two-game series with this win coming in New Jersey. After a tough first half, senior midfielder Ian Christianson (Cedar Rapids, Iowa/Christian Life) found the back of the net on a pass from freshman Melvin Snoh (Coatesville, Pa./Malvern Prep) in the 65th minute.
The insurance goal came in the 89th minute from a familiar combination. Senior defender Jimmy Nealis (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) came up from the backline and passed it to junior forward Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North). Neumann one-timed it to freshman forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's), his favorite target this season, and Allen buried it in the back of the net to give the Hoyas the two-goal lead which would stand as the final.
On Monday, sophomore goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll marking his first weekly award from the conference. In the win over Providence College, Gomez managed seven saves and his fourth shutout of the season.
Georgetown is 14-2-1 on the season and 5-2-0 in BIG EAST play. Leading the way for Georgetown is Allen who has 22 points with ten goals including six game winners as well as two assists. Neumann has 19 points with five goals and a team and conference-high nine assists, while senior forward Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep) rounds out the top three with six goals for 12 points.
In the net, Gomez has appeared in 11 games with 37 saves and five shutouts to his credit.
For the season, Seton Hall's Max Garcia is leading the way with six goals and three assists for 15 points on the season. He is followed by George Velazquez with four goals and three assists for 11 points. In the net, Michael Kuzan has 51 saves, while Kevin Bonder has posted 25 stops.
Georgetown is 14-14-2 all-time against the Pirates, and 5-1-1 all-time under Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese. In the last meeting in the District in 2010, Georgetown won, 6-0. Last year, the Hoyas downed SHU, 3-1, in New Jersey.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. at North Kehoe Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Dan Helfrich and Tom Greaser will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
