Georgetown beat Butler, 3-0, on Thursday night.
Oct. 4, 2013
WASHINGTON - The ninth-ranked Georgetown University women's soccer team began a stretch of three-straight conference road games with a 3-0 win over Butler on Thursday night in a BIG EAST game in Indianapolis, Ind.
It was the second-straight win for the Hoyas, who improves to 10-0-2 overall and 2-0-1 in the BIG EAST Conference. The win also extends a season-opening unbeaten streak for Georgetown, ranked No. 9 by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and No. 9 by Soccer America, to 12 games, the longest in program history.
"This was a very good win on the road against a very good soccer-playing team," Head Coach Dave Nolan said. "Teams are starting to sit against us defensively now and we had to work hard to break Butler down tonight."
Sophomore Sarah Adams (San Diego, Calif./Westview) scored the first goal of the night for Georgetown off a corner kick from junior midfielder Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills). The ball flew to the far side of the field and Adams connected on her fifth goal of the season in the 16th minute of play.
The Hoyas held a 5-1 advantage in shots in the first half and limited chances from the Bulldogs, holding leading scorers Sophia Maccagone and Elise Kotsakis in check.
"They have two very good players and we always had to be on our toes at the back," Nolan said. "I thought Emily (Menges) and Alexa (St. Martin), in particular, were excellent."
Senior forward Kaitlin Brenn (Branchburg, N.J./Somerville) and senior defender Colleen Dinn (Kensington, Md./Holy Cross) each scored a goal for Georgetown in the second half with Brenn getting behind the Butler defense off the pass from Marina Paul (Aliso Viejo, Calif./Laguna Beach) in the 48th minute and Dinn earned her first goal of the season off a breakaway.
Butler out-shot Georgetown, 9-8, while the Hoyas held a 5-3 advantage on corner kicks. Junior goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) made three saves for the Blue & Gray.
The Hoyas continue their road trip on Sunday, Oct. 6, visiting Providence for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
"We had good goals from Sarah, Kaitlin and Colleen and we're happy with the shutout tonight," Nolan said. "Now it's on to Providence for a real dog fight on Sunday."
