Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown field hockey team lost its first BIG EAST Conference game today to Providence, 3-0, on Kehoe Field. The Hoyas fall to 2-5 on the year and 0-1 in league play while the Friars improve to 8-1, 1-0 in conference action.

A late goal in the 65th minute from Meghan Holden would solidify the 3-0 shutout for the Friars. Georgetown took nine shots in the second half while holding Providence to four. The Hoyas also created a total of five penalty opportunities - five in the second half alone - but could not capitalize on them.

In the first half, Jessica Weinstein scored two goals, both assisted by Nellie Poulin to give Providence the 2-0 lead.

Sophomore goalkeeper Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) allowed three goals and posted six saves as she put in a full day's work. Her record is now 1-2.

The Hoyas return to action on Saturday, September 23 when they host Bucknell on Kehoe Field. The game is slated for noon. Georgetown returns to BIG EAST action on Sunday, October 1 when they play against Syracuse at 1 p.m., the first of three-straight conference road games.
