ANNAPOLIS, MD - Senior midfielder Nick Miaritis (Setauket, NY/Ward Melville) scored a career high four goals for the seventh-ranked Georgetown lacrosse team (5-2), leading the Hoyas to an 11-6 victory over Navy (7-2) Sunday afternoon at Rip Miller Field on the Yard of the United States Naval Academy. The win gave Georgetown its fifth win away from home this season and avenged a close 7-5 loss to Navy last season.
The decision to move the game from Georgetown to Navy was made on Friday because of the forecasted rain storm. The Hoyas and Midshipmen fought through a quarter of play in a driving rain storm Saturday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium when referee Scott Boyle collapsed. Boyle was attended to by Navy medical staff and transported to Anne Arundel Medical Center where he later died. The game was suspended and picked up Sunday on Navy's turf field.
The Hoyas dominated play on Saturday, out-scoring the Mids 2-0 after the opening stanza. On Sunday, Georgetown picked up where it left off, scoring four-consecutive goals in the second period, including two in the first 2:30, to open up a 6-0 lead on the Mids with 5:15 to play in the half. Two of Miaritis' four goals were scored in the first half along with scores from Trevor Casey (Bethesda, MD/Georgetown Prep), Pete Cannon (Haverford, PA/The Haverford School), Matt McBride (Ridgewood, NJ/Delbarton) and Sean Denihan (Manhasset, N.Y./Manhasset).
Navy finally got on the scoreboard when Graham Gill tucked in his seventh goal of the season on an extra-man goal with 3:44 remaining in the opening half.
Georgetown face-off specialist Andy Corno (Bethesda, MD/Walt Whitman) was whistled for an illegal body check just a minute into the second half, putting the Midshipmen a man up. Navy utilized the extra-man opportunity to score its second goal of the afternoon at 13:16 in the third.
While Navy looked to have the momentum after scoring two-straight goals, Georgetown regrouped and tallied three-consecutive strikes, including a man-up goal by junior attack Derek Mills (Moorestown, NJ/Moorestown) and scores from Miaritis and Garrett Wilson (Ardmore, PA/Episcopal Academy).
The Mids, however, wouldn't go quietly, scoring a pair of goals in the final minute of the third period, including an extra-man goal by Mirabito with eight-tenths of a second left in the quarter.
The fourth quarter featured a pair of goals by each team, including Miaritis' fourth of the game.
When looking at the final stats, Georgetown did everything it needed to do, including win the groundball war. The Hoyas produced a 41-30 groundball advantage.
The Hoyas also won the face-off battle by one, claiming 10 of the 19 draws. While Corno is a sensational face-off specialist, he was aided by senior pole Brodie Merrill (Orangeville, Ontario/Salisbury School) who played on the wing of face-offs and ended the contest with a team-high tying seven grounders.
For Georgetown, Miaritis led the scoring with his four goals, while Mills posted two.
Georgetown's next action will take place in Manhasset, NY at Manhasset High School on Saturday, April 9, when the Hoyas will face Vermont for the second consecutive season at a neutral setting. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
