MORNING BRIEFING: Major Georgetown turnaround
by Paul Kennedy, September 11th, 2008 8AM



In 2007, Georgetown opened 1-5-0. This year, the Hoyas are 5-0-0 for the first time in a decade after picking up their fifth straight shutout victory of the season with a 1-0 win over Stony Brook on Wednesday.

Scott Larrabee scored the game's only goal when Seawolf keeper Dawid Ditrich got his fingertips on Larrabee's shot but the ball hit his body and ricocheted into the goal.

"It was just a matter of being patient and hoping we didn't give anything away," said Georgetown coach Brian Wiese.
Next up is Providence No. 25 in their Big East opener.

"We have to quickly refocus," said Wiese, "for as good as a start it's been, we are suddenly in the league now. Providence is on Saturday and we're starting from square one again. We have to make sure that we're ready."

LITTLE BIG MAN. UC Santa Barbara's midfield was decimated by losses to MLS, but the Gauchos have found help in the form of 5-foot-4 Bryan Dominguez. The freshman has three assists in his first three collegiate games, including both during UCSB's opening 2-1 victory over Air Force. Dominguez played for the USA at the 2007 Under-17 World Cup in South Korea.

HOME STREAK. Top-ranked Wake Forest is unbeaten in its last 24 home contests. The streak ranks as the 10th best home unbeaten streak in NCAA men's soccer history. The Deacons open ACC play Saturday against Clemson.
