One by one, Georgetown men's soccer players crumbled to the ground when the clock struck zero. The Hoyas' unexpected run to the College Cup final finally hit a wall Sunday.
Once the eight-goal scoring madness at the College Cup had ended and Georgetown goalie Tomas Gomez batted away the final penalty kick, there was one last sprint to make.
Confetti flew through the air, and the sellout crowd stormed the field to celebrate Georgetown's 3-1 victory over San Diego in the Elite Eight. The Hoyas will advance to the Final Four in Hoover, Ala., to play Maryland (who won the semifinal against Louisville).
Teammates ran after their goalie – "You're killing my fitness with those 100-yard runs," forward Steve Neumann told Gomez later – until Gomez ended his sprint by sliding near a corner-kick flag with arms raised to the heavens.
