Georgetown handles Monarchs in second round

WASHINGTON -- Sixth-seeded Georgetown (14-4-2) got off on the right foot in the 2013 NCAA tournament with a 3-0 victory against Old Dominion (11-6-1) Sunday afternoon at Shaw Field. The second-round victory moved the Blue & Gray on to the third round where Georgetown will host 11th-seeded Michigan State next Sunday.

"The ability to handle the wind conditions was as much of the storyline as anything else today," Georgetown head coach Brian Wiese. "Old Dominion is a really good team, we watched them run over Drexel, with potent attack players. It's great to get another shutout against a team of that caliber."

The game opened up 10 minutes in as junior midfielder Tyler Rudy slipped it to sophomore forward Brandon Allen who had a shot that was saved by keeper Sean Stowe.

Georgetown had three corner kick opportunities taken by senior captain Steve Neumann, but the difference came in the 12th minute off of the fourth corner.

The ball moved from Hoya to Hoya in front of the goal before junior midfielder Tom Skelly passed it to Allen. The sophomore found a waiting Cole Seiler at the far post who knocked it in to make it 1-0.

From that point on, it was the Monarchs that had chances as a number of corners and turnovers at midfield made it a shooting gallery.

The last 15 minutes belonged to ODU, but Georgetown got out of the half leading 1-0.

The Monarchs started the second half pressing forward and getting a number of attempts. The defense and Georgetown keeper Tomas Gomez came up with some big plays to keep it scoreless.

With ODU pressuring on offense, GU was able counter and took advantage of the opportunities.

The Blue & Gray got some breathing room in the 60th minute. Sophomore defender Josh Turnley sent a beautiful ball to freshman midfielder Bakie Goodman at the near post. Goodman blew by his defender to shoot to the far post making it 2-0.

After the game got more physical with the clocking winding down, Georgetown managed one more goal. Allen passed it to freshman midfielder Alex Muyl who finished perfectly past Stowe for the third goal and the 3-0 decision would stand.

The win was the Hoyas' 14th shutout of the season and it was ODU's first road loss of the year.

The Monarchs outshot the Hoyas 20-9 and took seven corner kicks to GU's five. Gomez had the win the net with six saves to his credit, while Stowe took the loss with three stops.
