College Park, Md. - The Georgetown University field hockey team lost an 8-1 decision to visiting Syracuse this afternoon at the University of Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md. The Hoyas drop to 2-8 overall on the season with a 0-2 mark in BIG EAST Conference action. Syracuse improves to 9-2 with a 2-1 record in league play.

Trailing 7-0, junior midfielder Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) spoiled a Syracuse shutout when she scored a goal at 66:12 on a dish from sophomore Willemijn Wijsman (Hilversum, The Netherlands/International School Hilversum). Wijsman set up the corner, received the passback and crossed it to Lachman who was waiting in front of the goal for the tip. Syracuse scored one more goal for the 8-1 final.

Syracuse pulled ahead quickly scoring three goals in the first frame and added another four goals in the first 25 minutes of the second half.

Syracuse goalkeeper Heather Hess tallied three saves allowing no goals for the win before reliever Christina Puggi came in, allowing the Lachman goal in just shy of 16 minutes of playing time.

Junior Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) played the entire game allowing eight goals and posting six saves.

The Hoyas return to action on Sunday, September 30 when they travel to Farmville, Va. for a noon match at Longwood.
