Georgetown Women's Soccer to Compete in George Mason Tournament This Weekend
Sept. 7, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown women's soccer team will look to rebound from its first loss of the season this past Tuesday night, as they travel to nearby Fairfax, Va. for the George Mason Tournament. The Hoyas will play local rival George Washington on Friday, September 7, at 5 p.m. and Stony Brook on Sunday, September 9, at noon.
Georgetown is currently 2-1-0 as they enter the second weekend of regular-season play. After consecutive 1-0 wins over Richmond and Manhattan in the D.C. Invitational last weekend, the Hoyas dropped an early-week contest to a regionally-ranked James Madison team, 2-1.
In the Friday game, George Washington will be looking to avenge a 3-0 loss to the Blue and Gray last season. Karen Waskewich (Laytonsville, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross), Sarah Fetters (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla./St. Thomas Aquinas) and Shante Cofield all recorded goals for the Hoyas, who scored three times in the first half. Stephanie Zare (Lake Bluff, Ill./Lake Forest) and Elaina Filauro (Denville, N.J./Morris Knolls) each dished out an assist. Georgetown out-shot GW, 9-0, in the first half and 14-5, for the game.
On Wednesday, junior forward Meg Pyle's penalty kick in the 87th minute was the difference in a 1-0 win over Marshall. Last weekend, goalkeeper Amie Kern was named the Defensive Most Valuable Player of the Vermont TD Banknorth Classic after leading the Colonials to wins over New Hampshire (1-0) and Vermont (2-1, OT). Freshman Kristen Slack's first collegiate goal against New Hampshire helped her win the Atlantic 10 Co-Rookie of the Week Award for August 27-September 2. She also currently leads the team in points with one goal and two assists.
Stony Brook (2-0-0) received second-half goals from Trine Allenberg and Aria Tanzi to help propel them to a 2-0 win over Iona on Wednesday. It was the second-consecutive shutout to start the season for the Seawolves. SBU opened the season by defeating Siena, 1-0, last weekend. Freshman Danielle Tenaglia took a pass from Trine Allenberg and put it past the keeper for the game's only goal and Marisa Viola made six saves for the shutout.
This will be the first meeting between Georgetown and Stony Brook.
