Junior Ashton Hospodar scored her first goal of the season but the Hoyas fell just short against Appalachian State today.
Aug. 26, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University field hockey team was dealt a heartbreaking double-overtime loss, 4-3 to Appalachian State, at the JMU Field Hockey Complex in Harrisonburg, Va. The Hoyas drop to 0-2 on the season with its home opener this Friday, August 31.
"They played really hard the whole game," Interim Head Coach Tiffany Marsh said. "We need to work on finishing chances, but we know what we need to work on before Friday. It was good to see the team come together and really work as a unit."
In the seventh minute of the second overtime period, Appalachian State's Ali Gradishcer connected on an open shot at the cage past GU freshman goalkeeper Tiffany Kaszuba (Howell, N.J./Red Ban Regional) to seal the game for the Mountaineers.
ASU tied the game at three goals apiece less than four minutes shy of the end of regulation as Nicole Morgan found the back of the cage on a pass from Gradischer on a penalty corner.
The Blue and Gray took a 3-2 lead when sophomore Alice Murnen (Princeton, N.J./Stuart Country Day) dished the ball to junior Ashton Hospodar (St. David's, Pa./Radnor), who was open at the top of the circle and scored her first goal of the season. The game was tied at two goals when ASU's Quantina Chau drove past a defender to take a straight-on shot past Kaszuba in the second minute of the second half.
Georgetown went into the break with a 2-1 lead. Junior Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) tipped in the first goal unassisted after breaking through the Mountaineer defense. However, an ASU goal at 20:48 leveled the game at one goal apiece. Classmate Maggie Farrand (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) gave the Hoyas the lead as she capitalized on a penalty corner opportunity with the assist going to senior co-captain Lauren Sheets (Lutherville, Md./Garrison Forest).
Statistically, the Blue and Gray created a number of opportunities to pull ahead. They outshot the Mountaineers, 23-15, and had 13 penalty opportunities to ASU's three.
Kaszuba played the entire game in goal for the Hoyas and tallied three saves while allowing four goals.
ASU goalkeeper Denise Adams also put in a full day's work allowing three goals and posting six saves.
The Hoyas host its home opener on Friday, August 31 when they welcome St. Francis to the University of Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md. The game is slated for 5 p.m.
