Washington, D.C. – The Notre Dame men’s soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision on the road at Georgetown as the Irish lost for the fourth straight time to the Hoyas. The loss dropped Notre Dame’s record to 5-7-1 overall and 2-6-0 in the BIG EAST.
The game’s first goal was not scored until the 76:27 mark of the contest when Georgetown’s Kenny Owens scored the game-winning goal poff of a penalty kick. The Hoyas added an insurance goal at the 82:37 mark when Peter Bachman lofted a shot over the head of goalkeeper Cole Straub (Oakville, Ontario) from seven yards out off an assist from Kyle Rakow.
Straub played well in goal for the Irish in his second career start as he made six saves in the contest, equaling his personal best against St. John’s on Saturday night in the 1-0 victory over the Red Storm.
In an evenly contested match, both teams attempted 13 shots. The Hoyas owned an 8-4 advantage in corner kicks. Georgetown goalkeeper Tim Hogan also made six saves in the game as the Hoyas improved to 8-4-1 overall and 4-3-1 in the BIG EAST.
