MEN'S SOCCER | Hoyas Win Chaotic Season Opener


Fortunately, the Georgetown Hoyas (1-0) managed to secure a narrow 3-2 victory against the Santa Clara Broncos (0-1) in the opening game of the season for both teams. Despite their preseason all-Big East selections and a strong offensive display, the visiting Hoyas raised concerns about maintaining their past consistency. During the initial twenty minutes, the outcome appeared evident. Seizing an opportunity from a poorly executed first pass, sophomore midfielder Max Viera skillfully positioned the ball in front of Santa Clara's defensive line. Senior midfielder Kyle Linhares, situated between two defenders, outpaced his opponents and skillfully maneuvered the ball past Broncos' goalkeeper Felix Schaefer, marking the quickest goal in the school's history a mere 13 seconds into the match.
