Georgetown Holds Off DePaul
WASHINGTON, D.C. Seth C’deBaca’s goal just over three minutes into the game ended up as the game-deciding goal as Georgetown defeated DePaul, 1-0, in a BIG EAST soccer match on Sunday. With the loss, the Blue Demons conclude the weekend league road trip with a split following Friday’s 1-0 victory at Seton Hall.

DePaul (2-3-2, 1-1-0 BIG EAST) totaled 15 shots in the match with a 9-8 advantage in the second half. Both team took six shots in the first period. Georgetown (6-2-0, 1-2-0 BIG EAST), ranked No. 22 in this week’s NSCAA/adidas top 25, racked up 10 corner kicks while each goalkeeper was credited with five saves.
