Sept. 4, 2010
WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University field hockey team (3-0) defeated the La Salle Explorers (0-2), 6-4, today at the William I. Jacobs Recreational Complex. This is the first time the Hoyas have opened a season with a 3-0 record since the 2000 campaign.
The Hoyas opened the scoring with an unassisted goal off a breakaway from Kimberly Keating (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy). The Explorers scored a pair of goals to take a 2-1 lead.
The Hoya rebuttal from Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) off an Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) tip-in evened the score at two goals apiece. Wilson tallied a goal off the redirect from the penalty corner to give the Hoyas a 3-2 lead with the assists attributed to Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) and Charlotte Tierney (Rye, N.Y./Holy Child).
To open the second half, Sophia Pifer (Coopersburg, Pa./Southern Lehigh) scored an unassisted goal off the scramble in the middle of the circle at 37:02 for a 4-2 Hoya lead.
La Salle's Deaner scored in the 50th minute of regulation to bring the Explorers within one (4-3). Beth Carey missed a pivotal penalty stroke opportunity for the Explorers to keep the score at 4-3. Maddie Doub scored the equalizer for La Salle, creating a stalemate at four.
As the excitement brought both benches to their feet, Wilson broke away on the left side of the circle crossing it to an open Shugrue, who blasted the game winner against the right side of the cage.
Wilson capped off a stellar performance by scoring the final goal of the game, with the assist from Shugrue. Wilson ended the day with two goals and two assists for six points.
Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) had four saves and earned her third victory of the season.
