Hoyas down Bulldogs with a pair of late tallys


Butler  faced conference-rival Georgetown University last night at The Butler Bowl. Georgetown used a pair of goals in the second half to come away with a 2-0 win.

Despite the loss, head coach Paul Snape was happy with his team’s first half play.

“I thought we did well to get in at half.” Snape said, “In the second half, they really came out and dominated us. Attacking wise, we created one or two chances, but it wasn’t great.”

After a scoreless first half, Georgetown junior Brandon Allen scored the only two goals of the game, in the second half.

Allen’s first goal was a result of a penalty on Butler junior Jesse Miser in the 78th minute of the game.

Allen’s second goal was scored with less than two minutes left to go in the game.

Sophomore David Goldsmith knew that there was just a couple instances that altered the game.

“For most of the game, we were fighting, everyone was working, we had a game plan and we stuck to it,” Goldsmith said. “It was working, a (penalty kick) and one lapse of concentration changed the game.”

Paul Snape had optimism despite his team’s loss.

“Anytime you go zero-zero going into the last ten minutes against Georgetown,” Snape said, “It’s great.”

The Bulldogs’ next game is at St. John’s on Saturday  at 7:30 p.m.
