Georgetown Women's Soccer Falls in BIG EAST Semifinals to DePaul, 1-0
Nov. 8, 2013
MILWAUKEE - The Georgetown University women's soccer team (15-2-2) had its trip to the BIG EAST Championship cut short by DePaul (13-4-2), falling 1-0 in the Semifinals on Friday evening at Marquette Valley Fields.
The Hoyas outshot the Blue Demons 26-2, but a DePaul goal in the 68th minute proved to be the game's lone goal.
Junior midfielder Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills), who was named the BIG EAST Midfielder of the Year on Thursday, had seven shots for a Hoyas team that outshot DePaul, 15-1 in the first half, though the Hoyas could not find the back of the cage.
Georgetown continued to control the action in the second half, before Erin Petkovitch scored from 20 yards away in the 68th minute to put the Blue Demons in front for good. The Hoyas defense did not allow another shot the rest of the way, taking six more shots, without any success.
Junior goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run), a third team All-BIG EAST selection, took the loss, allowing one goal and making one save on the evening.
The Hoyas now await its seeding when the NCAA Tournament pairings are announced on Monday November 11 at 4:30. The selection show will be streamed live on NCAA.com.
