WASHINGTON – The Georgetown (1-8, 0-2) field hockey team lost Saturday, at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex, to the No. 16 Louisville Cardinals (7-2, 2-0) in their second BIG EAST matchup of the season, 8-1.
Georgetown kept the game close for a majority of the game. The Hoyas went into halftime only down two goals.
The Cardinals scored 52 seconds into the game when sophomore midfielder Elisa Garcia took a shot from the right side of the circle which then deflected off freshman forward Shannon Sloss for the goal. Sloss was credited with her fifth goal of the season.
Louisville stretched the lead to 2-0 with nine minutes left in the first half when junior forward Becca Maddock scored on a setup penalty corner. Elisa Garcia took the original shot from the top of the circle when Maddock deflected the shot out of Georgetown’s goalie Rosalie Nolen’s reach. Nolen made her ninth-straight start in net for the Hoyas.
The Hoyas got two penalty corner opportunities with no time left on the clock in the first half. Georgetown’s Hailey Vann, a freshman back, put both corners into play. Sophomore midfielder Emily Weinberg got a shot off on the first corner, but Lousiville’s Sydney King made the save. The Cardinals were able to clear away the second corner to send the game to halftime.
The beginning of the second half started like the beginning of the first half, only this time the Hoyas were scoring.
Senior forward Katie Dempsey scored her first goal of the season two minutes into the second half for Georgetown when sophomore midfielder Louise Chakejian took a shot from the top of the circle off a corner that deflected off Dempsey. Chakejian tallied her first assist of the season on the play.
In the ensuing minutes following Georgetown’s goal, which cut the lead in half, the Hoyas put themselves in great position to make a move on the No. 16 Cardinals.
But then, 14 minutes after Georgetown’s goal, Louisville went on to score six unanswered goals in the final 20 minutes of play.
After playing the first 58 plus minutes, freshman goalie Rachel Skonecki replaced Nolen for the final 11:35 of the game. Nolen made nine saves on the day, but allowed four goals in the second half. Skonecki played 16:45 in goal for the Hoyas in the season-opener against Davidson, but had not seen time in net since.
Skonecki allowed the final two goals of the game.
The Hoyas are back in action tomorrow, Sun. Sept 29 at 6 p.m. at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex against the St. Louis Billikens, whom they defeated last year on the road, 4-1.
