Sept. 18, 2010

Box Score

WASHINGTON - Facing its toughest match to date, the No. 15-ranked Georgetown University women's soccer team suffered a tough 1-0 loss at the hands of No. 11-ranked Santa Clara Friday night at Buck Shaw Stadium on the campus of Santa Clara University.

The loss ends a seven-game win streak for the Hoyas, who fall to 7-1-0 overall, while Santa Clara improves to 5-1-2 overall. The Hoyas will close out the Santa Clara Classic on Sunday, Sept. 19, playing No. 2-ranked Stanford.

In Friday night's game, Santa Clara freshman scored just before halftime to give the Broncos a 1-0 lead. After a flip throw from Jenny LaPonte, Jenks was able to score at 41:54, credited for a driven crossed ball that skipped off the grass and into the goal.

"The girls battled hard against a very good Santa Clara team in a game of few chances," Head Coach Dave Nolan said. "I thought our back four and defensive mids were outstanding in limiting Santa Clara to few chances.

"We had a few good moments, but never could get the ball to the right person at the right moment. Overall, I felt a draw would have been a fair result."

Santa Clara out-shot Georgetown,11-6, but the Hoyas had five corner kicks in the first half.

"Though disappointed, the girls are excited about getting the chance to rebound against a very good attacking Stanford team on Sunday," Nolan said.
