WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University field hockey team (2-7, 0-2) built a 2-0 lead 11 minutes into its game at Louisville (6-3, 1-0) but the Cardinals scored four unanswered for a 4-2 victory. Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) had her fourth goal of the year five minutes into the game and a ricochet shot off a Louisville defender gave the Hoyas a 2-0 advantage early in the first half.
Louisville peppered the Hoya goal all game, taking 22 shots compared to Georgetown's three, but senior keeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) made a season high 12 saves and gave up just three goals. The other Cardinal goal was against Emma Hamstra (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor Pioneer) on a penalty shot. Georgetown had to face 12 penalty corners and the Hoyas never took one. Louisville has now won all seven meetings against Georgetown.
Georgetown built an early 2-0 lead by attacking the Louisville goal early. Shugrue marked for the Hoyas 5:53 into the game with a shot from the top right of the circle. Then less than five minutes later a rebound off a Louisville defender found the net and the Hoyas built a two goal advantage.
The Cardinals were able to tie the game before halftime with two scores a little less than five minutes apart. The first was a penalty stroke by Mallory Mason and then a goal from Becca Maddock.
In the second stanza Louisville took a 3-2 lead three minutes after halftime. The one goal margin stood for the next 22 minutes before the Cardinals closed it out with a tally by Alyssa Voelmle, building a two goal lead for the game's final 10 minutes.
The next game for Georgetown is Sunday, September 23, at Miami (Ohio) in Oxford, Ohio. Game time is set for 11 a.m.
