Owings Mills, Md. - The Georgetown University field hockey team lost a 3-1 decision to Towson tonight at the AstroTurf Field on the campus of Villa Julie College in Owings Mills, Md. The Hoyas drop to 1-4 on the season while Towson improves to 2-4. The Tigers outshot Georgetown 18-7.
Freshman forward Micaela O'Toole (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) denied Towson goalkeeper Michelle Cheek a shutout as she put Georgetown on the board with just under seven minutes to play in regulation, the lone goal of the game. Junior Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) pushed through two Towson defenders to find an open O'Toole on the left side. It was O'Toole's third goal of the season and Lachman's second career assist donning the Blue and Gray.
Towson took a three-goal lead in dramatic fashion when Kajee Murangi broke away from the pack and took an off-balance shot from the right side that flew past GU junior goalkeeper Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) at the 44:59 mark. It was Murangi's second goal of the game and it was unassisted.
The Tigers extended their lead to two when Christina Boarman scored a goal on a straight penalty corner off the stick off Laura Schnell. Towson took the lead into halftime.
Towson was the first to get on the board today as Murangi scored in the fifth minute of regulation on a dish from Maria Schuette.
Crovo recorded eight saves and allowed three goals.
The Tigers created 11 penalty corner opportunities to Georgetown's three.
The Blue and Gray return to the field at noon on Saturday, September 15 when they travel to Providence, R.I. for the BIG EAST Conference season opener at Providence. They will continue with the road-swing on Sunday when they play at Brown with the game scheduled for noon.
