Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University field hockey team lost a 7-0 decision at No. 11 James Madison (STX/NFHCA Division I National Preseason Poll) today at the JMU Field Hockey Complex in Harrisonburg, Va. After dropping the season opener, the Hoyas will try to get their first win when they take the field tomorrow.
The Blue and Gray rendered the Dukes scoreless for nearly 23 minutes before JMU's Melissa Stefaniak tallied her first goal of the season at the 22:51 mark for the 1-0 lead. With just under three minutes left in the first half, Meghan Bain found the back of the cage for James Madison off a dish from Lauren Walls. Just 16 seconds later, sister and teammate Ashley Walls scored a goal of her own to give James Madison the 3-0 lead going into the break.
The Dukes played the second half with the same intensity as Stefaniak increased the lead to four goals with her second tally of the game in the fourth minute of the second half. James Madison went on to score three more goals for the 7-0 shutout. JMU's Stefaniak ended the day with two goals while all three of the Walls triplets tallied a point - Ashley and Melissa with a goal and Lauren with an assist.
The Dukes held the Hoyas without a shot in the first half, but Georgetown was able to take three shots in the second half. Sophomore Alice Murnen (Princeton, N.J./Stuart Country Day) took two shots for Georgetown while sophomore Chelsea Aiken (Hudson, Ohio/Western Reserve Academy) took the third.
In her first start, freshman goalkeeper Tiffany Kaszuba (Howell, N.J./Red Ban Regional) played the entire game allowing seven goals and recording five saves.
JMU's Kelsey Cutchins played the first half in goal while Merel Broekhuizen filled in for the second half, recording one save.
Georgetown returns to action tomorrow, August 26 when they play Appalachian State at the JMU Field Hockey Complex in Harrisonburg, Va. The game is slated for 10:30 a.m.
