Hoyas Nip Wagner in Football Home Opener (photos)
Matt MacZura kicked two field goals, the last one a 35-yarder with 1:42 to play to give Georgetown (2-0) a narrow 13-10 victory over Wagner (0-2) in a non-conference game at Multi-Sport Field on Saturday Sept. 8 in Washington DC. Wagner had tied the game at 10 with 5:19 left, on a 44-yard field goal by David Lopez. Coming off a 35-14 season opening win at Davidson, the Hoyas had reason to be optimistic. Georgetown has returned 17 starters from last year's successful season that fell just one win short of its first Football Championship Subdivision playoff appearance.
Though held to only 13 points, the offense was not short of opportunities. Georgetown senior Jeremy Moore had an apparent 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown called back by a holding penalty. And the team twice had the ball inside their opponents 5 yard line with only a field goal to show for it. The offence was led by backup quarterback Aaron Aiken who was making his first career start. He was playing in place of injured senior Isaiah Kempf. Aiken's 12-yard touchdown run around right end in the third quarter had given Georgetown a 10-7 lead. For the afternoon, Georgetown registered 312 yards of total offense compared to just 244 for the Seahawks
