WASHINGTON – The UConn women’s soccer squad was shutout, 4-0, by No. 19 Georgetown on Friday afternoon at North Kehoe Field. The Huskies drop to 5-4-1 and 1-2 in league action after Friday’s loss, while the Hoyas improve to 9-1-1 and are 3-0 in the BIG EAST.
Georgetown outshot Connecticut 20-6 and capitalized four times as Daphne Corboz registered two goals, while Kaitlin Brenn and Colleen Dinn both found the back of the net for the Hoyas.
The Huskies, unable to score for only the second time this season, had freshman Stephanie Ribeiro take two shots on goal and senior Linda Ruutu with one shot on goal. Despite UConn’s efforts, Hoya keeper Emma Newins (9-1-1) recorded three saves to stop the Huskies from dotting the scoreboard.
Brenn scored the first goal of the game at 9:43 on a cross from Sarah Adams before Corboz would go on to tally back-to-back scores in the opening half. Her first goal (16:58) was assisted by Adams which she followed with an unassisted goal at 23:41.
Georgetown’s final goal was scored at 65:28 by Dinn off of a free kick that sailed into the far post. Emily Menges was awarded with the assist.
Connecticut keeper Leigh-Ann Jaggon fell to 1-2 on the season despite saving nine shots on goal.
The Huskies continue their weekend journey when they take on Villanova on Sunday, September 23 at 1 p.m.
