Hoyas win NCAA Men’s College Cup in penalty kick shoot out

It was a showdown like no other in Cary, North Carolina on Sunday night.

Right down to the wire. 

After two scoreless 10 minute overtimes, it all came down to a seven round penalty kick shootout where a save by Georgetown goalkeeper Tomas Romero won it all for the Hoyas, 7-6.

Romero stopped Virginia's Axel Gunnarsson to give the Hoyas their first NCAA men’s soccer championship. 

After scoring 17 goals, Georgetown University won the 2019 Men’s College Cup National Champions over UVA.

It was a very back and forth battle between the two teams. 

Virginia jumped out on top. In the 10th minute, Junior midfielder Joe Bell scored the first goal and his 7th goal this season putting Virginia ahead 1-0. 

Junior midfielder Paul Rothrock responded with an unassisted goal in the 16th minute, putting Georgetown on the board and tying the game 1-1.

In the 22nd minute, Georgetown Freshman Daniel Wu had a set piece, scoring his first goal of the season and extending the Hoyas lead 2-1. 

Later in the 58th Daniel Steedman gave the Cavaliers a spark tying it up 2-2. 

It looked as if the Hoyas had it in the bag when Derek Dodson broke the tie in the 81st minute putting Georgetown on top 3-2 but that didn't last very long. 

Inside five minutes to go in regulation time, Daryl Dike attempted a header which was deflected but followed through with his own rebound regaining the tie 3-3 for UVA.

That is where things got interesting.

After a hard fought game, two ovetimes and a penalty kick shoot out the Hoyas would go on to take the title over the Cavaliers winning 7-6.
