Georgetown Freshman Goalkeeper Jackie DesJardin Named to BIG EAST Honor Roll; Hoyas Prepare for James Madison Tonight
Sept. 4, 2007
Washington, D.C. - Freshman goalkeeper Jackie DesJardin (Sunnyvale, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll for her play from August 27-September 2 it was announced late Monday afternoon from the conference office. She became the first Hoya goalkeeper to post back-to-back shutouts to begin her collegiate career. Georgetown won both games over the weekend, defeating Richmond and Manhattan by identical scores of 1-0 in the D.C. Invitational at American University.
Coming off the successful first weekend of the season, the Blue and Gray travel to Harrisonburg, Va. to tangle with the James Madison Dukes on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at the JMU Lacrosse/Soccer Complex.
The Hoyas are 2-2-1 against the Dukes in five total contests. Despite losing last year's game at home 1-0, the Hoyas were unbeaten in the three previous meetings between the schools.
In last year's matchup, the Hoyas dominated the first half of action, out-shooting the Dukes, 9-1, with most of the play on the Georgetown end of the field. However, James Madison broke a scoreless tie early in the second half, on a goal by Corky Julien at 57:39 off a feed from Sarah Cebulski. For the game, the Hoyas controlled play offensively with a decisive 16-4 edge in shots.
James Madison returns seven starters from last year's 11-9-2 team that reached the Colonial Athletic Association championship game and they also enter this game sporting a perfect record. On Friday, the Dukes defeated Loyola (Md.) in Baltimore, 1-0 on a goal by junior Kimmy Germain. On Sunday, goals from All-CAA forward Annie Lowry and freshman Cate Tisinger gave JMU a 2-0 win at home over Virginia Tech.
Junior Teri Maykoski, a preseason All-CAA selection, anchors the defense while sophomore goalkeepers Missy Reimert and Diane Wszalek have shut out the opposition thus far. The Dukes are currently ranked sixth in the SoccerBuzz rankings for the Mid-Atlantic Region.
