WASHINGTON, D.C. - The University of Pittsburgh men's soccer team could not overcome a stagnant second half, dropping a 6-2 decision at No. 19 Georgetown on Wednesday afternoon at North Kehoe Field.
After falling behind by two scores, the Panthers (4-12-2-6 Big East) knotted the game with consecutive goals.
Sophomore forward Nico Wrobel found teammate Andy Clifford for Pitt's first goal of the game in the 31st minute. Wrobel collected a loose ball and scooted it to Clifford for his second tally of the season.
With the Hoyas (9-3-4, 4-2-1) holding a 2-1 lead at the half, Pitt evened the score in the second period. Senior Terry Akpua crossed the ball from the left side, lofting it over the Georgetown defense. Freshman Manny Morgado headed the ball into the back of the net in the 66th minute to make it 2-2.
The Hoya offense took off from that point, scoring four unanswered goals over a 21-minute span.
Freshman goalkeeper Lee Johnston gave up four of the Hoyas six goals, leaving in the 74th minute. He previously had given up just 12 goals in 12 games.
The Panthers close out the regular season on Saturday, Oct. 29, at Marquette.
