One of Rosalie Nolen's five saves on the day.
Sept. 22, 2013
WASHINGTON - Sophomores Callie Hiner and Emily Weinberg each scored their first goals of the season to fuel the Hoyas (1-7) to a victory over the Holy Cross Crusaders (2-4). Georgetown scored twice in the final minutes of the first half on Sunday against Holy Cross at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex to capture their first win of the season by a score of 2-1.
The game’s first goal came after GU goalie Rosalie Nolen, who started her eighth straight game in net, saved an initial shot by Holy Cross senior forward Carly Grimaudo. After the initial save, sophomore forward Katy Cronin put the rebound in the net to give the Crusaders an early 1-0 lead 13:56 into the first half.
The Hoyas tied it back up at one apiece when sophomore back Callie Hiner scored her first goal of the season with 3:23 remaining in the first half. With traffic built up in front of the net, freshman forward Molly Thompson passed to Hiner, who scored the goal at close range.
Almost exactly one minute later, the Hoyas struck again, taking a 2-1 lead when sophomore midfielder Emily Weinberg scored her first goal of the season with 2:20 left to play in the half. The play was set up by freshman back Hailey Vann who put the ball into play on the penalty corner. Vann, who primarily puts all corners into play for the Blue & Gray, tallied her first assist of her freshman campaign on the play.
Georgetown kept their 2-1 lead throughout the second half. The Blue & Gray put their offensive prowess on display in the first half and followed suit in the second half when the Hoyas were able to control the pace and the ball for the majority of the time remaining.
The defensive crew was on the same page for the Hoyas all game after allowing the Crusaders to take an early 1-0 lead in the first half. GU held Holy Cross scoreless for the final 56 minutes.
With time winding down and with Holy Cross frantically trying to tie up the game, Georgetown did not even allow them control the ball inside of the circle, let alone get a shot off.
Georgetown controlled the temp for the majority of the game, which was largely played in the Crusader's zone.
Georgetown took 15 shots in the game, nine of which were on goal. They outshot the Crusaders, 15-9.
The Hoyas also had the advantage on penalty corners, 7-3.
Rosalie Nolen made 5 saves on the day, in her first win, to take her season total to 66. Her most crucial save came with about 13 minutes left in the game when Katy Cronin of Holy Cross, who scored the first goal of the game, got a one-on-one chance against Nolen. Cronin took a high shot aimed at the top-right corner of the net which led to Nolen making a game-saving pad save.
The Hoyas will look to build off this momentum for the next week when they host No. 19 Louisville next Saturday, Sept. 28 at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex at 1 p.m.
