Oct. 14, 2008

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's soccer team (10-1-2) countered a sluggish first half with three second-half goals and knocked off the Syracuse Orange on Tuesday afternoon, 3-1. Toni Marie Hudson (Coral Springs, Fla./Stoneman Douglas) had two goals and created the third when her cross was knocked in the net for an own goal. Her 10 goals ties the GU single-season record that is shared by Chrissy Skogen and Jessie Beers-Altman and the junior is currently third on the single-season points list with 24.

After a lackadaisical showing during the first 45 minutes, the Hoyas received a sudden jolt thanks to Hudson's first goal in the 47th minute. A long throw-in by Samantha Baker (Long Beach, Calif./Wilson) was headed in near the far post by Hudson for a 1-0 advantage.

Some back-and-forth play over the next 10 minutes did not result in any scoring chances for either team. Then, Hudson got a ball delivered to her on the right wing and headed for the endline, looking for a cross attempt. Her subsequent cross caromed off a Syracuse defender for the Hoyas second goal.

During the 78th minute, Caitlin Durkee (St. Paul, Minn./Como Park) played the ball up the left side, but it appeared as though Syracuse goalkeeper Eliza Bennett-Hattan would be able to beat a streaking Hudson to the ball. However, they both arrived at the same time and Hudson was able to nudge it free to keep the play alive for an easy 3-0 lead.

Amanda Morris scored her second goal of the season for SU when she beat GU goalkeeper Jackie DesJardin (Sunnyvale, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) in the 85th minute, making the score 3-1. The assist was credited to Megan Bellingham.

The Blue & Gray improved to 4-5-1 all-time against Syracuse and have now won two in a row against the Orange.

 

 

Georgetown will travel to Morgantown, W. Va. for a 7 p.m. contest against the nationally-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers on Friday night.
