The Georgetown Hoyas men's soccer team is headed back to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Men's Soccer Tournament after a thrilling 2-1 victory over Old Dominion on Sunday at Shaw Field.
The Hoyas had to battle back from an early Monarchs lead after Old Dominion took the lead 1-0 in the 26th minute on an own goal after a corner kick bounced in off of one of the Hoyas. The Hoyas had a number of chances in the first half, but couldn't score and went in down at the half.
Georgetown dominated the run of play in the second half and had a number of close chances. Brandon Allen hit the post on an open-net chance and the game began to bear signs of another rough 1-0 loss for the Hoyas. However, Allen made up for the miss in the 74th minute, drilling a shot from the top of the box off of a feed from Tyler Rudy.
The Hoyas continued to dominate possession and chances throughout the last 15 minutes and the overtime periods, but it took until literally the last moment for the Hoyas to find the back of the net. Old Dominion committed a late foul and off the restart the ball came to Allen who fed Basuljevic. He fired the ball into the net off of a deflection with just 5 seconds remaining. Georgetown Athletics posted some video from the stands of the goal:
The Hoyas will take on Syracuse in the Sweet 16 Sunday, November 30th at 1 PM ET at Shaw Field. Syracuse defeated Penn State 2-1 in their second round matchup. They are the #9 overall seed.
