Junior midfielder Louise Chakejian record her first career goal in a win versus the Davidson Wildcats.
Sophomore Aliyah Graves-Brown (Harrisburg, Pa./Harrisburg Academy), junior Louise Chakejian (Chester Springs, Pa./The Episcopal Academy) and freshman Megan Parsons (Chester Springs, Pa./Villa Maria) all scored for the Blue & Gray. Georgetown was on the board first as Graves-Brown found the back of net at the 12:30 mark during the first half. It is the second goal of the season for the sophomore forward who also had a goal during Friday's loss at Appalachian state. Parsons, who Graves-Brown assisted on a goal yesterday, returned the favor by providing the assist today.
Tri-captain Chakejian put in the second goal for GU at the 16:56 mark. It was the first goal of the midfielder's career.
The Wildcats answered the second Hoya goal as Hannah Fisher, assisted by teammate Anna Davis, sent one past sophomore goalkeeper Rachel Skonecki (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Red Land) at the 19:44 mark in the first half. The Davidson goal was the final point of the first half.
"As a staff, we're proud of our team and their ability to come back from a tough loss yesterday and make the necessary adjustments," said Soares. "We'll get back to work this week in preparation for our home opener against a good Lock Haven squad."
The Hoya offense came out strong in the second half taking five shots, and forcing Wildcat goalkeeper Emily Leytham to make four saves, before Parsons was able to sneak one past Leytham at the 55:20 mark in the second half. The goal is the second season and career score for the freshman.
The Parsons goal and Georgetown defense was more than enough to keep the Wildcats at bay as the two shots they had following the third GU goal were blocked.
Overall, GU outshot Davidson 13-10, had nine shots on goal to the Wildcats' three and won the corner battle with a 10-6 advantage.
The Hoyas return to the Hilltop for a week of practice before welcoming Lock Haven to Multi-Sport Field for their home opener on Sunday, Sept. 7. Game-time is noon and admission is free.
