Are you confused and set adrift by the fact that today’s basketball game does not start at the typical noon hour? Never fear! Georgetown is also a soccer school, and both the men’s and women’s teams are engaged in postseason battles this weekend on Shaw Field.
SATURDAY: Women’s Soccer vs. CCSU - Noon ET, watch on GUHoyas.com
SUNDAY: Men’s Soccer vs. Marquette - 2pm ET, watch on FS2
Georgetown Women’s Soccer went undefeated in BIG EAST play, with a record of 8-0-1, and is currently ranked #2 in the country. They locked up the conference championship last weekend with a win over Butler- their third title in a row, for those who are counting. That earned them a 1-seed and first-ever matchup with Central Connecticut State University.
Basically, these women are awesome and their NCAA tournament journey begins now:
The No. 1-seeded Georgetown University women’s soccer team (17-0-3) will host the Central Connecticut State Blue Devils (16-1-2) in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament on Saturday afternoon. Kickoff is scheduled for noon at Shaw Field. Live stats and video will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
The Hoyas, ranked second in the nation in the United Soccer Coaches Poll, will be making their seventh-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and the eighth in the last nine years, all coming under Head Coach Dave Nolan. Georgetown has an RPI of 4 in the most recent report and earned one of four of the top seeds in the tournament. Stanford, who is ranked No. 1 in the country, Florida State and North Carolina round out the other top-seeded teams in the bracket of 64 teams.
The next afternoon, Georgetown Men’s Soccer will face Marquette for the BIG EAST championship. The Hoyas cruised to a 4-0 victory over Providence in the semifinal on Wednesday evening. If they Hoyas get the win on Sunday, that will be the third championship in four years for the men’s soccer team as well.
Settle in for a day of cheering on all kinds of Georgetown sports teams. If you’re planning to support them from the stands on Shaw Field, bundle up and maybe swing into Leavey for a quick warm beverage from Uncommon Grounds between games.
