Notre Dame Drops Heartbreaker to Georgetown

NOTRE DAME, Ind. --- Georgetown's Charles Beyer tallied the game-winning goal with 33 second left in overtime to lift the Hoyas to a 2-1 victory at 25th-ranked Notre Dame. Beyer's goal came at the 104:27 mark of the contest off a Jason Partenza assist as Georgetown remained in first-place in the BIG EAST regular-season standings.

Notre Dame headed into the contest tied for second in the league standings, three points behind Georgetown. The loss to the Hoyas was the second in three home games and the second straight defeat to a BIG EAST team. Last Saturday night, Notre Dame dropped a 1-0 decision to Syracuse at Alumni Field.

Georgetown dominated the overtime period, oushooting the Irish 3-0 in the period. Both team finished with 13 shots on goal for the game, but the Hoyas held a 10-4 advantage in corner kicks.

After a scoreless first half, Georgetown's Jeremy McKitrick put the visitors up 1-0 with a goal in the 57th minute of the contest. Just over two minutes later, Notre Dame tied the score when Ryan Turner scored from just inside the penalty box off assists from Scott Wells and Matt Johnson.

Notre Dame had several scoring opportunities following that goal. The best chance for the Irish came at the 83:12 mark when Turner's wide-open five-yard header hit the right crossbar and post.

With the loss, Notre Dame falls to 8-5-2 and 4-2-1 in the BIG EAST, while Georgetown improves to 9-4 and 7-1 in the league.

The Irish will play three BIG EAST contests, all on the road, in the next eight days. The next outing for Notre Dame is Tuesday, October 21 at 7:30 p.m. versus defending national champion St. John's.
