WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (2-3, 0-0 BIG EAST) could not keep up with Harvard on Saturday afternoon, falling behind by as many as 10 goals, as the Hoyas fell to the Crimson, 15-7 at Multi-Sport Field.

It was the Georgetown's first home game after playing its last three on the road, as the Hoyas respond managing a season-high 57 shots compared to the Crimson's 36. But the GU struggled to beat Harvard goalkeeper Jake Gambitsky, who made 18 saves.

Junior midfielder Bo Stafford (Greenwich, Conn./Brunswick) scored two goals and attack Jeff Fountain (Lutherville-Timonium, Md./St. Paul's) had one goal and one assist in the loss.

Graduate student Tyler Knarr (Eagleville, Pa./LaSalle College) won 17-of-26 face-offs for the Hoyas and picked up 12 ground balls.

The Hoyas fell behind by two, midway through the first quarter, before junior midfielder Charlie McCormick (Bronxville, N.Y./Bronxville) answered with an unassisted goal. Junior midfielder Mitch Hugdahl (Eden Prairie, Minn./Eden Prairie) scored his first career goal on the first of two assists from Reilly O'Connor (Brooklin, Ontario/The Hill Academy), tying the score at two goals apiece with 3:09 remaining in the first quarter.

The Crimson would take over soon after, scoring the next 10 goals, while holding the Hoyas scoreless for the next 21 minutes. Georgetown was outscored 7-0 in the second quarter, then Harvard scored the first two goals of the third quarter to take a 12-2 lead.

 

 

Senior midfielder Grant Fisher (Bloomfield Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) stopped the Crimson run, scoring from the right side on the assist from freshman Peter Conley (Larchmont, N.Y./Mamaroneck). After another Harvard goal, Stafford scored the next two to bring the Hoyas within eight goals, 13-5.

Freshman midfielder Eduardo White (Littleton, Colo./Kent Denver) added a goal, before Fountain's man-up goal with 3:45 remaining in the fourth quarter proved to be their last. Harvard scored once more, as Georgetown fell 15-7, for its third consecutive loss after a 2-0 start.

Georgetown will host Furman on Tuesday, March 11 at Multi-Sport Field. Face-off between the Hoyas and Paladins is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. A live broadcast of the game will be available via Hoyavision on GUHoyas.com.
