Box Score

WASHINGTON. - Georgetown University's field hockey team (2-8, 0-2) fell 7-1 at Miami (Ohio) (4-6) earlier today. Miami built a 4-0 lead in the first half before Georgetown freshman Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hathaway Brown) scored the Hoyas lone tally off a penalty corner. Miami now owns a 2-1 series lead against GU.

Georgetown outshot Miami in the first half, 7-6, but was unable to convert the chances into goals. The Red Hawks put the Hoyas in a one goal deficit three minutes into the game and then Miami scored twice more in a span of two minutes halfway into the period. Weinberg lit up the scoreboard for Georgetown right before the half ended. At the break Georgetown was down 4-1.

In the second stanza Miami outshot GU 14-1 and took 11 corners. Miami's final three goals were spread out in the second half and sealed the Hoya loss.

Hoya keeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) made five saves on the day and allowed six goals in over 60 minutes of playing time. Fellow keeper Emma Hamstra (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor Pioneer) played the other 10 minutes and gave up one score.

The Hoyas host back to back games this coming Saturday, September 29, and Sunday, September 30. On Saturday GU plays Monmouth at 1 p.m. The Hoyas then turn around to play Lock Haven at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Both games will be played at University of Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md.
