Neumann engineers another Hoya win

[GEORGETOWN-MARQUETTE] No. 2 Marquette's 12-game winning streak, the longest in the country, was snapped on Saturday when the Golden Eagles fell to No. 14 Georgetown, 2-1, in Washington.

“We struggled to find a pattern of play today, and eventually [Georgetown] won out by controlling the way that they wanted to play, preventing us from playing the way that we wanted to play, and in the end we just had too few moments,” said MU coach Louis Bennett. “Credit goes to Georgetown, but as we shown, you can never knock us out.”
 
Just like last year, Steve Neumann helped engineer the Hoya victory over Marquette with the eventual game-winning goal in the 50th minute.
 
MU freshman star Axel Sjoberg was whistled for a foul at the top of the 18-yard box, setting up a free kick which Neumann deposited into the right side of the net past a line of Golden Eagles defenders and a diving Charlie Lyon to give the Hoyas a 2-1 advantage, a lead Georgetown would not relinquish.
 
The Hoyas started out with much of the possession, as MU struggled to get forward. The anxiety only increased, but just momentarily, after the visitors surrendered the opening goal.
 
Georgetown grabbed a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute when Neumann connected with Tommy Muller, who headed it into the back of the net.
 
Bryan  Ciesiulka equalized for Marquette in the 35th minute on an opportunistic goal. A poor clearance ended up at the feet of the junior midfielder, who ripped a low shot from nearly 30 yards out inside the right corner of the net.

“I though both of their goals were good goals,” Bennett said. “Fortunately, Bryan Ciesiulka got us back into it. There were times throughout the game, where I recognized us and there were times that I didn’t, however.”
 
Oct. 13 in Washington, D.C.
Georgetown 2 Marquette 1. Goals: Muller (Neumann) 22, Neumann 59; Ciesiulka 35.
