It is said that the grass is always greener on the other side. This tendency to always strive for something apparently better has created a destructive trend in the sporting world: successful college coaches leaving their posts for a shot with a professional franchise. College football coaches are most often guilty of this mistake, and recently, yet another has fallen victim.
Under overcast skies, the Georgetown men’s soccer team took to North Kehoe Field on Wednesday afternoon against crosstown foe American. Despite taking an early lead, the Hoyas couldn’t hold off the Eagles, falling 3-1.
As the Georgetown men’s soccer team (6-2-1, 3-1-0 Big East) has jumped out of the gates to a great start, the team’s hallmark has been its defense. Although the Hoyas have been aided by the strong play of defenders—like senior Alex Verdi, who was just named to College Soccer News’ national Team of the Week—when all else fails, Georgetown can count on their keeper. However, if you look back into the Georgetown net, you won’t necessarily see the same face each time.
