Sept. 24, 2012
WASHINGTON - Georgetown University junior women's soccer player Emily Menges (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) was named the BIG EAST Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday, while junior forward Kaitlin Brenn (Branchburg, N.J./Somerville) was named to the Weekly Honor Roll.
The duo helped lead the Hoyas to a pair of weekend victories, beating UConn, 4-0, on Friday, and closing out the weekend with a 1-0 win over Providence.
It was the fourth-straight win for the Blue & Gray, who improved to 10-1-1 overall 4-0-0 in the BIG EAST Conference. This is the fastest Georgetown has reached 10 wins in program history and it is the first time in program history the Hoyas have won their first four conference games.
Menges has been the leader on a defensive backline for Georgetown that has recorded eight shutouts this season, including four-straight to open BIG EAST Conference play. She and defensive teammates Mary Kroening (Woodbury, Mass./Woodbury), Claire Magliola (Mahwah, N.J./Mahwah) and Alexa St. Martin (Westford, Mass./Westford Academy), have Georgetown ranked first in the BIG EAST in goals-against average at 0.74.
In four conference games, Georgetown is the only team in the league to have yet allowed a goal.
This past weekend, Menges played the full 180 minutes as she helped lead a unit that limited UConn to only six shots attempts in Friday's win and Providence to just four.
Brenn, a junior forward, scored a pair of goals over the weekend to lead the offensive side. She scored the team's opening goal in the 4-0 win over UConn on Friday and then added the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win over Providence on Sunday.
Brenn is second on the team in scoring with 17 points, coming off of seven goals and three assists. She is second on the team in both goals and assists. In BIG EAST games, she has two goals and two assists for six points.
She has been a key figure in an offense that ranks first in the BIG EAST in points (85, 7.08 per game), first in goals (31) and second in goals per game (2.58). Against BIG EAST opponents, Georgetown is first points (38, 9.50 per game), first in goals (14) and third in goals per game (3.50). This is the second time Brenn has been named to the Weekly Honor Roll as she was also selected on Aug. 27.
Sophomore midfielder Daphne Corboz (Greenbrook, N.J./Watchung Hills) leads the team in scoring with 22 points, scoring nine goals and four assists. She is second in the BIG EAST in scoring. Junior forward Colleen Dinn (Kensington, Md./Holy Cross) is third on the team in scoring with 12 points (5 goals, 2 assists).
Georgetown is off until next Sunday, Sept. 30, visiting Pittsburgh. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m.
