COLLEGE PARK, MD. - Georgetown University's field hockey team (2-6) played Lehigh University (2-6) at Maryland's Field Hockey Complex and fell just short of a two goal comeback, losing 3-2. Down one goal with 10 minutes to play the Hoyas controlled the game's final moments but were denied the game tying goal.
Georgetown's Katie Dempsey (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Country Day School of the Sacred Heart) scored her first goal of the season and Charlotte Tierney (Rye, N.Y./Holy Child) recorded her second. The Hoyas outshot the Mountain Hawks 19-8 and had six corners compared to five.
Georgetown fell behind early in the game, as Lehigh's Kimberly Eng scored a penalty stroke goal four minutes in. Georgetown keeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) appeared to have made a spectacular save on a shot but the ball ended up being trapped in her pads, thus awarding Lehigh a penalty stroke which they converted.
Less than three minutes later Lehigh scored again on a backhanded shot from the left side of the goal. With nine minutes to play till half it looked like GU had an opportunity to put one on the board as the Hoyas were awarded a penalty stroke. Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) ripped her stroke toward the left corner of the goal but it careened off the pipe.
The Hoyas quickly halved the score just over one minute into the second period. Dempsey received a pass from Sarah Butterfield (Bridgewater, N.J./Oak Knoll) and blasted GU's first goal of the game. Georgetown continued to pressure Lehigh but could not convert another score before Lehigh's Lindsay Metzger put the Mountain Hawks up 3-1 with 28 minutes to play.
Georgetown re-seized the momentum when Tierney took a feed from Wilson and snapped off a score with 10 minutes remaining. In the final minutes Georgetown controlled the ball and made numerous runs for the game tying goal but to no avail.
Georgetown next faces BIG EAST rival Louisville in Louisville on Friday, September 21.
