Annie Wilson had a goal and an assist to help the Hoyas past Appalachian State
Aug. 25, 2012
DAVIDSON, N.C. - Senior forward Annie Wilson propelled the Georgetown University field hockey team (1-0) during a three-goal run with an assist and the eventual game-winning goal to lead the Hoyas past Appalachian State, 3-2 in its season-opener at the Belk Turf Field on campus at Davidson College.
Wilson, an All-BIG EAST Second Team selection last season, had one goal and assisted senior Kimberly Keating's goal, that put the Hoyas in front 2-1. Senior forward Catherine Shugrue also scored a goal, while senior goalkeeper Briana Pereira made three saves to earn her 11th career victory.
"I think this win sets the tone for the season for us," Head coach Tiffany Marsh said. "It gets the monkey off our back with the first win and really lit a fire for us going into what will be a great test for us tomorrow."
Appalachian State struck first, as Jordyn Warren scored an unassisted goal at the 17:12 mark in the first half to take a 1-0 lead. But Shugrue evened the score late in the first half, scoring unassisted with less than four minutes until halftime to tie the score at one goal apiece.
The Hoyas took control from the start of the second half, peppering Mountaineers goalie Sarah Anderson, who finished with eight saves, before Keating broke the tie on an assist from Annie Wilson, just four minutes and 14 seconds into the half.
Wilson extended the lead to two goals less than three minutes later, scoring unassisted to put Georgetown in front 3-1.
"It was a good individual play by Annie to stay in the play in the circle," Marsh said. "It was a scramble in front of the goal and pure hustle to put it in the back of the net.
Appalachian State scored once more, as Megan High scored on the Casey Lammando assist at the 57:01 mark in the game, but the teams played scoreless hockey for the final 13 minutes, as the Blue & Gray held on to win its season-opener, 3-2.
Georgetown returns to action on Sunday at noon when they take on host Davidson.
