Hoyas jump out to 6-0-0 start

[GEORGETOWN-COLUMBIA] Two days after he picked up his 100th career win, Coach Dave Nolan watched as Georgetown shut out Columbia, 3-0, on the final day of play at the D.C. Invitational. The win was the sixth straight for the Hoyas, ranked 19th in the Soccer America Women's Top 25. Not bad for a team that lost three-time first-team All-American Ingrid Wells.

Defender Emily Menges broke a scoreless tie against the Lions with a free kick from 25 yards late in the first half.

“It was a tremendous free kick,” Nolan said.  “Emily hit one just like that last year at Seton Hall and we’ve been at her to do that.  You have to have the confidence to do that.  She hits the ball with so much pace that it’s difficult for goalkeepers to get it.”

The Hoyas added two more goals early in the second half from Jessica Clinton and Kaitlin Brenn to seal the win.

Two days earlier, the Hoyas had pounded Cornell, 6-1. Daphne Corboz scored two goals, and Kaitlin Brenn, Vanessa Skrumbis and Dinn each added a goal and an assist.
