WASHINGTON - The No. 5 Georgetown University men's soccer squad will travel to Queens, N.Y., on Saturday to battle the St. John's University Red Storm (8-6-2, 1-4-2 BIG EAST) in an important BIG EAST Conference matchup. The game is the second in a two-game road swing for the Blue & Gray.
Last week, the Hoyas had a big 1-0 overtime victory at Marquette to improve to 12-3-1 overall and 5-1-1 in the BIG EAST which moved them into a tie for first place. Senior defender Ted Helfrich (Belvedere, Calif./Marin Catholic) scored his first career goal heading in a Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) corner kick in the 94th minute for the victory.
For their efforts, Neumann was named the BIG EAST Conference Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, while junior goalkeeper Tomas Gomez (Webster Groves, Mo./Webster Groves) won BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Week honors.
Neumann scored two goals and had two assists in a 2-0 week for the Blue & Gray. He posted two goals and one assist in a 6-0 victory against DePaul on Wednesday and assisted on the game winner at Marquette.
Gomez posted a pair of shutouts while helping push the Hoyas into first place. He had one save in the DePaul win and played a huge role with five saves in the victory at Marquette. The MU shutout was significant as it helped the team break the season shutout record with 11. Additionally, Gomez broke the record for career shutouts posting 23 as well as season shutouts with nine to his credit this year.
Neumann leads the team in scoring with 26 points on 10 goals and six assists. Sophomore forward Brandon Allen (Old Bridge, N.J./St. Joseph's) is second with 10 goals and three assists for 23 points, while freshman Alex Muyl (New York, N.Y./Bard) has three goals and a team-high eight assists for 14 points.
Gomez has a record nine shutouts on the season, while the Hoyas have a program-record 11 overall. The junior has tallied 46 saves so far this year.
St. Johns' (8-6-2, 1-4-2) offensive attack has been led by eight different goal-scorers this season, including five players who have tallied a game-winning goal. After anchoring a defensive effort that posted a pair of shutouts as part of a 1-0-1 week against two of the top-scoring teams in the league least week, Tim Parker was named the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week and Rafael Diaz earned a spot on the Weekly Honor Roll.
St. John's played to a scoreless draw against then-No. 16 Marquette, a team that entered the week ranked fourth in the league in goals scored, and then notched a 1-0 win against a Butler squad that was second in the league in goals. With a clean sheet at Butler, Diaz tied the program-record with his 30th career shutout.
Georgetown is 5-18-3 all-time against the Red Storm. The Hoyas downed STJ in the BIG EAST Tournament last season at home in a 2-1 victory where both Neumann and Allen scored. The last meeting at St. John's was two years ago in New York in the first round of the BIG EAST Tournament where the Hoyas fell, 2-1.
The opening kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET, at Belson Stadium. Live stats and a webcast will be available through the Red Storm's athletic website.
