Georgetown men's soccer coach Keith Tabatznik earned his 200th career victory yesterday as the Hoyas opened their season with a 2-1, come-from-behind win over Delaware at North Kehoe Field.
Senior forward Dan Gargan tied the game in the 55th minute and junior forward Danny McAnally scored the game-winner with about 10 minutes remaining.
Tabatznik, in his 21st season at Georgetown, is 200-170-20. After the match, he was presented with a banner by school officials and, upon his return to the athletic department offices at McDonough Gymnasium, he was welcomed with congratulatory signs posted by staff members.
"It feels good to get it out of the way," said Tabatznik, who played at American University. "The team showed a lot of character to come back."
The Hoyas will participate in the D.C. College Cup this weekend with American, Howard and George Washington at AU's Reeves Field.
Games will be played Saturday and Monday afternoons, with the Hoyas facing GW and the host Eagles playing Howard on the first day of the tournament.
Georgetown, picked to finish seventh in the 12-team Big East, is the defending D.C. College Cup champion. . . .
