Georgetown sophomore defender Erika Roberts

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University women's soccer team (9-3-0, 2-2-0 BE) will play the final two games of a five-game conference road trip this weekend, when they play No. 25 Notre Dame (NSCAA/adidas® National Rankings) on Friday night and DePaul on Sunday afternoon. The Hoyas will head to Notre Dame, Ind. for a 7:30 p.m. contest against the Fighting Irish (7-4-1, 5-0-0 BE) at Alumni Field on October 12. They will then travel to Chicago, Ill. to play the Blue Demons (4-8-1, 1-4-0 BE) at 2 p.m. from Wish Field on October 14.
Heading into the middle of BIG EAST play, the Hoyas are being led in points by freshman Ingrid Wells (Upper Montclair, N.J./Montclair) and senior Sara Jordan (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central) with 11 each. Jordan and sophomore Toni Marie Hudson (Coral Springs, Fla./Stoneman Douglas) are tied for the team lead in goals with four apiece while Wells leads the team in assists with five.
Hudson was just named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll for this past week for her two-goal performance in a 3-1 win over No. 24 Marquette last Sunday. The other goal of that game was scored by Jordan, who, with the tally, became the seventh Hoya in GU history to be ranked in the top-10 for goals, assists and points for a career.
The Georgetown defense has also been solid, allowing only eight goals through 12 games. Freshman goalkeeper Jackie DesJardin (Sunnyvale, Calif./Archbishop Mitty) has recorded five shutouts and maintains a 0.59 goals-against average. She has also been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll twice.
Notre Dame owns a 12-1-0 record against Georgetown with the lone Hoya win coming in 2002 on North Kehoe Field. In fact, ND has won all seven meetings on their home field by a combined score of 46-2. Last season though, except for Connecticut's tie with the Fighting Irish, the Hoyas gave ND their biggest scare of the BIG EAST season in a 1-0 game here in Washington, D.C. Notre Dame went on to finish 25-1-1, 10-0-1 in the BIG EAST and then finish as the National Runner-Up following a 2-1 loss to North Carolina in the National Championship.
The Irish went 2-0-0 last week, including a 4-1 win at Syracuse on October 5 and a 3-0 victory at St. John's on October 7. Notre Dame's current four-game winning streak includes a 14-2 scoring margin. ND's 29-game BIG EAST unbeaten streak (28-0-1) ranks eighth in the NCAA record book and is the third-longest in ND history. Junior Brittany Bock's first career hat trick (at Syracuse) made her one of six Irish players to score the first three goals in a game. Hanks (Sept. 21, against DePaul) and Bock are the first ND teammates to post hat-tricks in the same regular season since Amy Warner and Meotis Erikson did it during the 2000 season.
The Hoyas and DePaul have met each other for conference games during the past two seasons, splitting a pair of contests. GU won last year's contest by a score of 4-0 here on the Hilltop. Elaina Filauro (Denville, N.J./Morris Knolls) tallied two goals, while Alexandra Hardy had a goal and an assist. Chrissy Skogen also added two assists and Norah Swanson (Alamo, Calif./San Ramon Valley) had a helper in the win.
The Blue Demons went 0-2 last week on the road, but they open a four-game homestand this weekend against Villanova and Georgetown. Sophomore forward Shannon Williams moved into a tie for 12th on the all-time scoring list with a goal at Syracuse on October 7. She has totaled 15 points on the year, including seven goals and an assist. Each of DePaul's last four matches has been decided by one goal (1-3). Overall, the Blue Demons have played in seven one-goal games (2-5).
