Oct. 8, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University redshirt freshman women's soccer player Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week on Monday. This is the fourth-straight week a member of the Hoyas has been named one of the league's weekly award winners.

Newins helped to lead the Hoyas to a win and a tie during a pair of BIG EAST Conference road games this past weekend. Georgetown beat Cincinnati, 1-0, on Friday night and then finished the weekend with a 1-1 tie at Louisville on Sunday.

The Hoyas, ranked No. 11 in the country by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and No. 11 in the Soccer America poll, are now 12-1-2 overall and 6-0-1 in the BIG EAST's National Division, tied for first place.

Newins made five saves in Friday night's 1-0 win at Cincinnati as she spearheaded the Georgetown defense to its sixth-straight shutout against BIG EAST Conference opponents.

On Sunday, Newins gave up a goal early in the second half in a 1-1 tie at Louisville, but was strong in goal for the Hoyas as she made five saves. The goal scored by Louisville was the first against Newins in BIG EAST play in more than six games, ending a streak of 610:20 without allowing a goal. In the first overtime period, she made a diving stop on a shot to preserve the tie.

Overall in 15 games, Newins leads the BIG EAST in goals-against average at 0.62, save percentage (85.2%) and shutouts (8.5). In seven conference games, Newins leads the league with a 0.14 goals-against average and in save percentage (93.8% and shutouts (4.5).

Georgetown sealed the win over Cincinnati on Friday when sophomore midfielder Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) sent a corner kick to the box in the 81st minute, where junior defender Mary Kroening (Woodbury, Minn./Woodbury) headed it in for the go-ahead goal.

 

 

Corboz, last week's BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week, scored the team's only goal in the 1-1 tie on Sunday. She leads the BIG EAST in scoring with 15 goals and six assists for 36 points. In seven conference games, she has scored 11 goals and has three assists for 25 points.

The Hoyas play a pair of BIG EAST Conference games this weekend at home. On Friday, Oct. 12, the top two teams in the BIG EAST National Division will match up when Georgetown hosts Notre Dame (10-3-2, 6-0-1). Kickoff at North Kehoe Field against the Fighting Irish is slated for 3 p.m.

The weekend closes out when Georgetown hosts DePaul (8-7-0, 3-4-0) on Sunday, Oct. 14. Kickoff at North Kehoe Field is slated for 1 p.m.
