Playing in a steady downpour Tuesday evening, the Navy
men's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision to visiting Georgetown at the
Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.
"I don't think there was enough time from the Army game last
weekend until tonight," Navy head coach Greg Myers said. "We just
weren't here tonight and in the game at all. Georgetown did a good job
from start to finish. We just had the same problem we've had all year
and that's attacking in the offensive third of the field."
Navy (5-8-1) fell behind 1-0 at the 22:35 mark when GU forward
Kemmons Feldman scored off a corner kick that was taken by Daniel
Grasso. Feldman went high in the box and headed the ball off the near
post which bounced in.
GU (7-8-2) struck again in the 37th minute when reserve Ellery
Bledsoe took a pass from Carl Skanderup and dribbled the ball down near
the endline and fired a shot that looked like a cross. However, the ball
bent back in the far corner of the net to give the Hoyas a 2-0 lead and
Ellery his first goal of the season.
The Hoyas finished off the Mids in the second half when Ricky
Schramm netted his eighth goal of the season. Schramm fired a shot from
about 20 yards out past Navy reserve keeper Aric McElheny for the final
tally. Danny McAnally and Ethan Caskey were each credited with an assist
on the goal.
GU outshot Navy, 21-7, while holding a 3-0 advantage on corner
kicks. Hoya keeper Tim Hogan made four saves, while Navy starter Frank
DiFilippo made two saves followed by Britton Chauvin and McElheny with
one and three saves, respectively.
Navy returns to action Saturday at 7 p.m. when the Mids play
host to Bucknell at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.
