    NO. 19 UConn HEADS TO GEORGETOWN ON SATURDAY
    The Huskies will make their first road appearance of the 2016 season on Saturday in Washington, D.C.

    Sept. 8, 2016

    WASHINGTON, D.C. –
    After opening the 2016 season with three wins in four home matches, the No. 19 UConn men’s soccer team makes its road debut on Saturday, Sept. 10 when it travels to Georgetown. Action at Shaw Field is set to begin at 1 p.m. and can be heard on WHUS.org, 91.7 FM.

    UConn (3-1-0) is coming off a 2-0 victory over Cornell on Monday night at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium. Nick Zuniga (Norwalk, Conn.) and Andrew Geres (Portland, Conn.) tallied their first goals of the season in the second half as the Husky defense recorded its second shutout of the season.

    Saturday’s meeting with the Hoyas will mark the 27th meeting between the two teams in a series dating back to 1991. The Huskies own a 14-9-3 all-time mark against Georgetown after securing their first win against the team in 1991.

    Georgetown enters Saturday’s tilt with an 0-4-0 record, most recently falling to Virginia Tech, 1-0, on Sept. 5. Offensively, the Hoyas have scored just one goal in their first four matches and have allowed opponents nearly 15 shots per contest.

    Connecticut owns an 8-7-4 mark in road openers since Ray Reid’s arrival in 2013. After a 1-1 weekend, the Huskies earned the No. 19 ranking in the weekly TopDrawerSoccer.com poll.

    John Tuite on WHUS says Thiam is a late scratch. That will hurt.

    Not good. Kick from Scotty to clear the ball went off Hoya player captain #10 and rolled into goal. Scotty was too far away. 1-0

    Will Abdou Mbacke Thiam be back for the Notre Dame game? Getting any sort of accurate injury reports during the Ray Reid years has always been an iffy proposition.
