WASHINGTON - Georgetown University senior women's soccer player Claire Magliola (Mahwah, N.J./Mahwah) was named to the TopDrawerSoccer.com Team of the Week after helping to lead the Hoyas to a BIG EAST Tournament Quarterfinal win over DePaul on Sunday.
The Hoyas, ranked No. 14 in the country by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America and No. 18 in the Soccer America poll, improved to 15-2-2 overall with a 1-0 win over the Blue Demons.
The win advanced Georgetown to the BIG EAST Tournament Semifinals for the second-straight year. GU, the No. 1 seed in the National Division, will play South Florida, the No. 2 seed in the National Division, on Friday, Nov. 2 at Morrone Stadium in Storrs, Conn. Kickoff for the game, which will air live on CBS Sports Network, is slated for 6:30 p.m., with Eric Frede and Shep Messing calling all of the action.
Magliola has been a stalwart on the Georgetown back line all season. She was a key figure in Sunday's shutout, the 13th this season for Georgetown, a school record.
The Georgetown defense limited DePaul to only four shots in the game, one in the first half and in the second half, while Magliola and her teammates continually stopped scoring chances for the Blue Demons.
"I didn't really feel like they had much where they were going to score," Georgetown Head Coach Dave Nolan said. "Our center-backs, with Mary (Kroening) and Alexa (St. Martin) were very good and Marina (Paul) and Tina (O'Tousa) did a good job of stopping anything before it started. Overall, it was a fair result."
Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run), who was named BIG EAST Rookie of the Week once during the season and to the Weekly Honor Roll once, made four saves in the game.
While the Georgetown defense has been impressive, allowing only two goals in the last 11 games, the Hoya offense has been equal to the task. Sophomore midfielder Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) leads the team in scoring with 39 points, a school record. She has scored a BIG EAST-best 16 goals and added seven assists, including an assist on the header from junior Colleen Dinn (Kensington, Md./Holy Cross) that provided the decisive goal in Sunday's win over DePaul.
Corboz is eighth in the country in points per game (2.11), tied for seventh in goals per game and is tied for fourth in goals scored (16).
She was featured on the website of the BIG EAST Conference on Monday Morning in the "Conference Confidential" feature. That story can be viewed here: http://www.bigeast.org/News/tabid/435/Article/238450/Conference-Calls-%E2%80%93-The-Diminutive-Dynamo-Daphne-Corboz.aspx
