Men's Lax Downed By Terrapin Defense In Season Opener

February 26, 2005

Box Score

College Park, MD. - The No. 5 Georgetown Hoyas lost to No. 4 Maryland, 13-6, Saturday afternoon at a sellout Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. Maryland goalkeeper Harry Alford, who stopped 25 Georgetown shots and the Maryland defense, which was a question mark heading into this season, stifled the Hoya attack and didn't allow Georgetown any clear looks at the goal.

Through the first three periods, the Hoyas scored three goals, each coming per period and were able to generate their offense in the fourth quarter. However, with a seven goal third period, the Terps were able to put the game out of reach. Sophomore Trevor Casey and junior Sean Denihan each scored a pair of goals, while All-American senior defender Brodie Merrill picked up a game-high 11 groundballs, caused four turnovers and added an assist.

Junior Peter Cannon and senior Brice Queener added the two other Hoya goals, while senior keeper Rich D'Andrea made two saves and allowed eight goals on the day. Freshman counterpart Miles Kass made his debut for the Hoyas and collected three saves and allowed five goals on the day.

The Hoyas travel to New York next weekend, Saturday, March 5th, to take on new ECAC rival St. John's. Face-off time is set for 1 p.m.

Georgetown - Sean Denihan 2-1=3, Trevor Casey 2-0=2, Peter Cannon 1-0=1, Brice Queener 1-0=1, Mike Boyton 0-1=1, Brodie Merrill 0-1=1.
