Sept. 24, 2013

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University junior women's soccer players Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) and Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) were selected to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll on Monday.

The Hoyas improved to 8-0-1 this season with a 2-1 win at Connecticut on Sunday, capping off a 1-0-1 week that included a double overtime draw with Central Florida (1-1) on Thursday at home.

Georgetown extended its season-opening unbeaten streak to nine games, the first time in program history the team has been unbeaten in its first nine games of the season. GU was ranked No. 10 in the latest national polls from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Soccer America.

Corboz scored a goal and had an assist in two games last week. She assisted senior Kailey Blain (Merrimack, N.H./Merrimack) in the team's only goal in the 1-1 draw with Central Florida. The midfielder followed that up by scoring GU's first goal in the 2-1 win over the Huskies on Sunday.

Selected as the BIG EAST Preseason Offensive Player of the Year and a candidate for the Hermann Trophy recognizing the national player of the year, Corboz missed the first five games of the season but has come back in the last three to score four goals and register five assists for 13 points, second on the team in scoring. She was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week on Sept. 16.

Newins recorded 11 saves in the two games last week, including six at UConn. She has posted an 8-0-1 record this season with a 0.49 goals-against average and five shutouts, which is tied for the conference lead. Newins was the preseason pick as the BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year.

Georgetown opens BIG EAST play this weekend, hosting a pair of conference games. On Thursday, Sept. 26, the Hoyas host DePaul. Kickoff against the Blue Demons (6-1-1) is slated for 3 p.m. Live video of the game will be available on the Georgetown Athletics website, www.guhoyas.com. The weekend concludes on Sunday, Sept. 29, with the Blue & Gray hosting Xavier (6-1-1) for the first-ever meeting between the schools.
