Women's soccer team loses to Georgetown in Big East Tournament

The Syracuse University women's soccer team's season came to an end Sunday with a 3-1 loss to the Georgetown Hoyas.

The Syracuse University women’s soccer team (7-8-3, 6-5-0 Big East) lost to the Georgetown University Hoyas (15-5-0, 8-3-0 Big East) 3-1 in the Big East tournament quarterfinals Sunday at Washington, D.C. The loss marked the end of SU's season.

The first half began with the Hoyas striking early, as freshman midfielder Daphne Corboz netted her 10th goal of the season at the 0:52 mark. Georgetown also struck again at the 18:20 mark, after Camille Trujillo netted her 12th of the season. The goal gave the Hoyas a 2-0 lead that they would take to halftime.

The Georgetown offense clicked in the first half while the Orange offense was stagnant. Syracuse only recorded three shots in the first half while Georgetown recorded seven.

The second half saw the Orange play much more offensively with Syracuse recording six shots in the half. One shot included Syracuse’s only goal of the game scored by defender Rachel Blum in the 75th minute. Blum’s goal, however, was too little too late.

The Hoyas added to their lead at the 50:18 mark, after Ingrid Wells netted her 9th goal of the season giving the them a 3-0 lead and putting the game out of reach for the Orange.

Frustration by the Orange stirred up the second half, as three yellow cards were handed out. Cecilia Borgstrom received one and Tina Romagnuolo received two.

With a 7-8-3 record, the Orange finished the season with its best Big East record under Wheddon. This season, which saw the Orange post seven wins for the first time since 2007, earned them a spot in the Big East tournament for the first time in four years. With all but two players coming back next year, the Orange should be poised for another successful season under coach Phil Wheddon
