Box Score |  Men's Lacrosse vs. Lafayette 

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (0-1, 0-0) fell, 11-10 in its season-opener at Multi-Sport Field, as Lafayette (1-0) scored a goal with 3:22 remaining in overtime to spoil the debut of Head Coach Kevin Warne.

Senior attackman Brian Casey (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) scored four goals and had one assist, while sophomore attackman Reilly O'Connor (Brooklin, Ontario/TheHill Academy) had a goal and three assists, but the Leopards outscored GU 7-2 in the second half, before the game-winner in overtime.

Casey set the tone early, scoring just over 30 seconds into the game on an assist from Zac Guy. He score again, less than a minute later during a GU man-up opportunity when Reilly O'Connor found him open near the top of the box, to take a 2-0 within the first two minutes. Dan McKinney scored the Hoyas third goal on an assist from Guy and Jason McFadden extended the lead to 4-0 on O'Connor's second assist with 8:16 remaining in the first quarter.

Lafayette answered at the 4:47 mark, as Jake Mann scored on the man-up opportunity to bring the Leopards within three goals, at 4-1. The Hoyas killed a two-man down situation, but as GU evened up, Jake Mann ripped a shot from the top of the box, with 1:25 remaining in the first quarter, to bring the score to 4-2.

In the second quarter, O'Connor dished out his third assist, finding a cutting Charlie McCormick in front of the crease, as McCormick finished for his first collegiate goal, extending the lead to 5-2 at 9:17 in the second quarter. Jeff Fountain provided the assist on Casey's third goal, running his defender behind the cage allowing Casey to camp out on the crease for the catch and finish to give the Hoyas a four-goal, 6-2 lead.

Brian Bock helped the Leopards back within three, making it 6-3, as he wrapped around the cage and scored at the 6:40 mark in the second quarter. However, the Hoyas would end the half on a 2-0 run, as Chris Nourse scored his first career goal on a GU fast break with 2:04 left and McCormick added his second goal of the game with 17-seconds remaining in the half, making the score 8-3.

Lafayette opened the second half on a 3-0 run, cutting the lead to two goals, at 8-6, but O'Connor took the Casey pass on the left side and scored with 2:03 remaining in the third, putting the Hoyas back in front by three goals.

The Leopards opened the fourth quarter on a 5-0 run, including Sonny Round's third and fourth goals of the game, closing the gap to one-goal, 9-8 at the 11:25 mark, before a Georgetown timeout. Keegan Lawton scored at 10:46 to tie the score at nine, before Bock gave Lafayette its first lead of the game at 8:41. Lafayette continued to surge in the fourth quarter.

Casey tied the score at 10, with his fourth goal of the game, picking up his own rebound and scoring from in close on the left side with 2:58 remaining in the game to end the Leopards run, sending the game into overtime. But the Leopards' John Floyd scored the game-winner with 3:22 remaining in overtime to seal the Lafayette's 11-10 victory.

Georgetown returns to action on Sunday, February 24 when they host Navy at Noon at Multi-Sport Field, as the two school's resume its Boyle Cup rivalry.
