Georgetown returns to action quickly, following an 8-6 loss at Harvard on Saturday afternoon. The game was moved to Saturday after a winter storm in the Boston area made Soldiers Field Lacrosse Stadium unplayable for its originally scheduled Friday evening face-off. Redshirt junior LSM Tyler Knarr (Eagleville, Pa./LaSalle College) turned in a dominant performance at the face-off X, going 12-of-16 and picking up five ground balls to earn a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.
Senior attack Brian Casey (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Prep) scored two first quarter goals against Harvard, both goals put the Hoyas in front. Casey leads the Hoyas with nine goals, with six of them tying or giving GU a lead.

Redshirt sophomore goalie Jake Haley (Grasonville, Md./Queen Anne's County) made his second start at Harvard and made nine saves in the loss. In two games, Haley is allowing just 8.50 goals per game with a .605 save percentage.
