The American University women's soccer team suffered its first loss of the young season on Sunday afternoon, a 4-0 decision at No. 23 Georgetown.
After a 40-minute pre-match weather delay, Georgetown (2-0) wasted little time in taking control of the match. The Hoyas began their scoring with a fourth-minute goal by Samantha Baker to take the early 1-0 lead. Jessica Clinton made the advantage 2-0 in the 32nd minute, and less than four minutes later, Alexa St. Martin stretched the lead to three goals.
Weather played havoc on the match again, causing another hour-and-a-half delay late in the first half. When action resumed, Georgetown added a second-half goal in the 80th minute off the foot of Ingrid Wells, and went on to claim the 4-0 victory.
The Hoyas, which are ranked No. 15 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com preseason poll and 23rd in the NSCAA national poll, outshot American (1-1) by a 17-1 margin in the match. Junior Jasmine Mohandesi recorded AU's lone shot, which was on goal.
