Georgetown Men's Soccer 2014 NCAA Tournament Capsule

Georgetown Hoyas
Big East


Georgetown has next level talent all over the field particularly Joshua Yaro, arguably the best defensive prospect in the country. Georgetown has been tested both in and out of conference, responding well to the pressure of big matches. There is a midseason hiccup as Georgetown went 1-2-1 in early October including back-to-back losses against lesser opposition.

2014 Record: 12-4-4, 6-2-1
Coach: Brian Wiese

Good Results: 9/30 at Maryland (1-0), 10/25 at Creighton (1-0)
Bad Results: 9/11 VCU (1-2), 10/18 at Seton Hall (0-1)

Why They Can Surprise:
Georgetown doesn’t just play well as a team, they have the individual attacking talent in Brandon Allen to win games with special moments. While Georgetown will rely on freshmen and sophomore for quality minutes, there are several key contributors from the 2012 College Cup runner-up teams, including goalkeeper Tomas Gomez. Gomez has not allowed more than two goals in a single match and has ten shutouts. In the five matches versus teams that finished in the November 9th Top 25 Poll, there were 2-1-2. They are in good form going into the Big East championship winning four in a row with three shutouts, including a 1-0 victory at Creighton.

Why They Can Disappoint:
When Georgetown struggled midseason, it was to lesser opponents that played ten behind the ball. Georgetown had difficulties breaking down well-organized teams and have had trouble scoring off of restarts. If you can contain the midfield, you can beat the Hoyas.
