SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team's 2014 season debut ended in a 3-1 defeat to No. 20 Georgetown University Friday evening at Torero Stadium.
After the two teams battled to a scoreless draw in the first half, the Hoyas struck first, as they managed to break the scoreless contest with a goal in the 50th minute of action. Daphane Corboz sent cross into a crowded goalbox, and Vanessa Skrumbis was able to chip the ball past the USD goalkeeper, giving GU a 1-0 lead.
San Diego didn't just fade away, as not a minute later, they evened up the score with a strike from Victoria Walker in the 51st minute of action. Jacqueline Altschuld sent in a cross, where Walker was able to redirect the ball into the back of the net, much to the delight of the 707 screaming Torero fans.
The furry continued just a minute later, as Georgetown would then regain the lead, when Skrumbus was able to tally her second goal of the match in the 52nd minute of play. GU then put the game out of reach in the 76th minute of play, as Corboz was able to take on one touch pass from Taylor Pak, and go one-on-one with USD's goalkeeper, and she netted the final goal of the contest, to put the match at its final of 3-1.
Both teams were even in shots at six apiece, while GU held a 4-1 advantage in corner kicks.
McKenna Tollack was saddled with the loss in goal for the Toreros, as she allowed three goals, and recorded no saves. GU's Emma Newins was able to pick up the win, as she allowed one goal and recorded one save.
The Toreros will return to action on Sunday, as they take on USC in a 2 p.m. match at Torero Stadium.
