PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The 23rd-ranked Providence College men's soccer team hosted No. 4 Georgetown on Wednesday, Oct. 9 in an afternoon tilt in Providence, R.I. In a back-and-forth match-up, the Friars fell to the Hoyas, 1-0. The game marked the first soccer game played on the newly constructed turf field located at the Ray Treacy Track. Providence moves to 7-2-2 (2-1-0 BIG EAST), while Georgetown improves to 9-2-1 (2-0-1 BIG EAST).
The Friars and Hoyas battled back and forth in the first 45 minutes of play. Providence was successful in generating possessions in their offensive third and out shot Georgetown, 8-4, landing three of its shots on frame. Neither the Friars nor the Hoyas were able to find the back of the net, and the game was even at 0-0 headed into the second half.
In the 49th minute, the Friars nearly earned their way onto the scoreboard. Markus Naglestad (Kristiansand, Norway) serviced a corner that junior Brandon Adler(Montville, N.J.) headed just above Georgetown's crossbar.
Georgetown took a 1-0 lead in the 69th minute when Bakie Goodman finished a strike from inside the 18-yard box. Teammate Tyler Rudy dished Goodman a feed that Goodman was able to bury near post. The remainder of the game was scoreless as the Hoya's held on for the win.
