WASHINGTON - Box Score

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's field hockey team (1-4) played its first game during its Missouri road trip and lost 2-0 to Missouri State (2-3). It was a defensive battle on the campus of St. Louis University for 59 minutes as neither team was able to score a goal. Missouri State then posted two scores less than two minutes apart to seal the victory.

Georgetown outshot Missouri State in both halves, recording 12 compared to eight for Missouri State. Hoya senior Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) led GU with six shots while fellow senior Katy Wingo (Great Falls, Va./Langley) ripped three. Missouri State goalie Andrea Bain had six saves in the contest while GU keeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) had two.

The first half saw both teams enter halftime without a goal. The Hoyas were peppering the goal in the first 35 minutes taking eight shots and forcing Missouri States goalie Bain to make four saves. Defensive stalwart and St. Louis native Elizabeth Mueller (St. Louis, Mo./MICDS) helped limit Missouri State to only three shots, none on goal.

In the second period it was more of the same defensive battle as both teams fought to a draw for 24 more minutes. Then with just over 10 minutes left in regulation Missouri State's Reiann Stoute broke the tie and Hillary Lawless closed the scoring minutes later.

Georgetown stays in St. Louis for one more game, Sunday, September 9, against St. Louis University. Game time is slated for 1 p.m.
