Sept. 13, 2012
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's soccer team is back in action this weekend as BIG EAST Conference play starts. The Hoyas host Seton Hall on Friday, Sept. 14 at North Kehoe Field. Kickoff is slated for 3 p.m. Live video of the game will be available on the Georgetown Athletics website - www.guhoyas.com.
The Hoyas enter the weekend with a 6-1-1 overall record, third place in the BIG EAST National Division. Georgetown split a pair of games last weekend in California, tying Santa Clara before dropping a game to No. 5 Stanford.
Overall, the Hoya offense has been among the best in the BIG EAST through the non-conference portion of the schedule, with Georgetown second in the BIG EAST in points (47), averaging 5.88 per game. The Blue & Gray have scored 17 goals in eight games, which ranks third in the league (2.12 per game).
Georgetown has been led by the potent duo up front of junior forward Kaitlin Brenn (Branchburg, N.J./Somerville) and sophomore Daphne Corboz (Greenbrook, N.J./Watchung Hills), who are the team's top two scorers. Brenn has scored 11 points, including a team-leading five goals. Corboz, meanwhile, is second on the team with 10 points off of four goals and two assists. Corboz has twice been named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll, while Brenn has been tabbed once.
Junior forward Colleen Dinn (Kensington, Md./Holy Cross) is third on the team in scoring with two goals and two assists for six points, while sophomore Jessica Clinton (Avon, Mass./Thayer Academy) has one goal and two assists for four points. Five other players - three of them freshmen, Marina Paul (Alisa Viejo, Calif./Laguna Beach), Sarah Adams (San Diego, Calif./Westview) and Eliza Loring (Dedham, Mass./Nobles & Greenough) - have scored one goal apiece.
Sophomore goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) and the Georgetown defense have been solid in the first eight games of the season, allowing only nine goals (1.12 per game). Newins, who had a streak of 348:53 without allowing a goal over the first three-plus games of the season, has a 1.06 goals-against average this season.
The back line - led by senior Claire Magliola (Mahwah, N.J./Mahwah) and juniors Emily Menges (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City), Mary Kroening (Woodbury, Minn./Woodbury) and Alexa St. Martin (Westford, Mass./Westford Academy) - has been solid in front of Newins. The Hoya defense enters the weekend tied for sixth in the league in goals allowed (9), sixth in goals-against average (1.12) and tied for second in saves (41, 5.12).
The matchup with Seton Hall on Friday will be the 18th all-time between the schools, with the series tied 8-8-2. The Pirates won last year's game a 3-2 double overtime win in New Jersey. The Hoyas are 3-1-1 in the last five meetings. Georgetown is 7-3-0 all-time at home against SHU.
Head Coach Dave Nolan, who won his 100th career game on Sept. 3 when Georgetown hosted Columbia, has a career record of 5-2-1 against Seton Hall, his alma mater. He has a career record of 4-4-0 in BIG EAST Conference openers and a 6-2-0 mark in BIG EAST Conference home openers.
The Hoyas close out the weekend of BIG EAST play on the road, traveling on Sunday, Sept. 16 to Rutgers. Kickoff at Yurcak Field is slated for noon.
