COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Georgetown University field hockey team (2-5, 0-1 BIG EAST) fell behind early and was unable to climb out of a hole, as they dropped its BIG EAST home-opener to Providence (4-2, 1-0 BIG EAST) on Friday afternoon at the University of Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex.

Senior midfielder Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) had a goal and an assist in the loss, while senior goalkeeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) had nine saves.

The Hoyas appeared to take a 1-0 lead on a shot by Charlotte Tierney that hit the back of the cage, but an illegal pick by GU disallowed the goal, as Providence streaked down the field and got a goal from Caitlin Malone at the 26:57 mark in the first half. Malone scored again less than two minutes later to put the Friars in front 2-0.

Senior midfielder Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) answered with less than five minutes remaining in the half, tapping in a goal on a rebound in front of the cage to cut the lead to, 2-1 going into the half.

Providence jumped out quickly in the second half as Sally Adua tapped in a rebound in front of the goal to put the Friars in front 3-1. Daniella Bernasconi scored less than five minutes later on an assist from Emma Mackie to take a commanding 4-1 lead.

The Hoyas answered with less than seven minutes left in the game, as senior Katy Wingo (Great Falls, Va./Langley) blasted a shot into the back of the cage off of a penalty corner that was inserted by Mittermiller and set by senior Laura Thistle (Philadelphia, Pa./Mount Saint Joseph Academy), but it would be the last goal the Blue & Gray could manage, falling 5-2.

 

 

Georgetown returns to action on Sunday, September 16 when they host Lehigh at 4 p.m. at the University of Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex.
