Box Score

College Park, Md. - Georgetown University junior Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) scored two goals and handed out an assist and the Hoyas outshot visiting St. Francis (Pa.), 30-8, in GU's 4-1 win over the Red Flash in field hockey action Friday evening. Georgetown improves to 1-2 on the year while St. Francis fell to 0-1.

Hoya Micaela O'Toole (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen & St. Agnes) and Maggie Farrand (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) each scored a goal while Lindsay Moramarco (Andover, Mass./Phillips Academy), Lauren Sheets (Lutherville, Md./Garrison Forest) and Willemijn Wijsman (Hilversum, The Netherlands) handed out assists.

The Hoyas controlled the game for the majority of the first fifteen minutes before the Red Flash had a six minute flurry where St Francis had a couple of offensive shot opportunities.

With 21 minutes to go in the first half, off a St. Francis corner Georgetown freshman goalie Tiffany Kazsuba (Howell, N.J./Red Bank Regional) went down on the ground to stop a shot by Red Flash senior Leigh Ann Conroy to keep the game scoreless.

Ten minutes later, the Hoyas had a terrific scoring opportunity go just wide. Off GU's fourth penalty corner, Alice Murnen (Princeton, N.J./Stuart Country Day) ripped a shot from the top of the arch that went just wide to the left.

Georgetown got on the board at the 4:01 mark. Lachman raced toward the goal as the Hoyas found themselves a two-on-two. Lachman neatly place a pass towards the front of the net where O'Toole tipped the ball past the Red Flash goalkeeper for her first goal of the season.

 

 

Georgetown extended their lead to 2-0 with 23:16 left when O'Toole and Lachman produced another score. O'Toole worked to get the ball into the teeth of the St. Francis defense before having it knocked away. The ball trickled towards the center where Lachman rifled a shot to the right of the keeper.

GU took a commanding 3-0 lead with 18:19 to go. Chelsea Aiken (Hudson, Ohio/Western Reserve Academy) took a shot on net towards the left post. Moramarco tipped it to Lachman, who notched her second marker of the afternoon.

St. Francis junior Belen Albanes cut the Georgetown lead to 3-1 at the 12:05 mark. Albanes found herself on a breakaway and snuck the ball into the net.

The Hoyas had three penalty corner chances in the final 1:30 and connected on the final one. Farrand tallied her second goal of the contest with just 35 seconds remaining. Wijsman fed the penalty corner to the top of the arch where Sheets tipped the ball to Farrand who fired a shot for a goal and the final score of the game.

Kaszuba finished with four saves while Red Flash junior keeper Erin Reifsteck made 14 saves.

The Hoyas will be in action again on Sunday, September 2 when GU hosts VCU at 3 p.m. The game will take place on Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex on the campus of the University of Maryland (College Park).
