VILLANOVA, Pa. - The Georgetown University men's lacrosse team (3-6, 0-2 BIG EAST) fell behind during a seven-goal third quarter run by Villanova (3-5, 2-0 BIG EAST), in a 13-8 loss to the Wildcats on Wednesday afternoon at Villanova Stadium.
Junior attack Reilly O'Connor (Brooklin, Ontario/The Hill Academy) led the Hoyas with two goals and three assists, while junior midfielder Grant Fisher (Bloomfield Hills, Mich./Brother Rice) and freshman midfielder Peter Conley (Larchmont, N.Y./Mamaroneck) each scored two goals.
Graduate student Tyler Knarr (Eagleville, Pa./LaSalle College) went 12-of-24 from the face-off X, while junior goalie Jake Haley (Grasonville, Md./Queen Anne's County) had 10 saves in the losing effort.
The game, originally scheduled for Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. for a national television audience, was moved due to a snowstorm in the Philadelphia area. While the snow let up, the cold, windy conditions persisted affecting both teams, as the Hoyas and Wildcats each had 19 turnovers apiece.
Freshman midfielder Devon Lewis (Orlando, Fla./Lake Highland Prep) put the Hoyas on the scoreboard first, scoring on a feed from Bo Stafford with 10:19 mark in the first quarter. The Wildcats answered midway through the quarter, as Kevin O'Neil scored to tie the game at one goal apiece through the first quarter.
O'Connor opened the second quarter for the Hoyas, beating the goalie after the setup from junior midfielder Charles McCormick (Bronxville, N.Y./Bronxville), giving GU a 2-1 lead at the 12:21 mark in the second quarter. Villanova kept pace, as Tim Mulrenan scored to tie the game at two at the 9:37 mark in the second quarter. Mulrenan followed with two more goals to help the Wildcats open a 4-2 going into halftime.
O'Connor scored his second goal of the game early in the third quarter to bring the Hoyas within one, before senior attack Jeff Fountain (Lutherville-Timonium, Md./St. Paul's) spun and shot to tie the score at four goals apiece.
The Wildcats regained the lead on its next possession, scoring at the 10:25 mark in the third quarter. Villanova scored seven consecutive goals during a six minute stretch to take an 11-4 lead. Conley finally stopped the run, scoring on O'Connor's feed with six seconds left in the third quarter,
The Hoyas made a run in the fourth quarter with goals from Conley and senior midfielder Grant Fisher (Bloomfield Hills, Mich./Brother Rice), who scored a pair of goals, bringing GU within five goals, at 13-8, the eventual final score.
Georgetown returns to action on Saturday, March 29 when they host new-BIG EAST member No. 6 Denver at Multi-Sport Field. The opening face-off is scheduled for 11 a.m., with the game being broadcast live on Fox College Sports.
