WASHINGTON - The Georgetown women's field hockey team (2-9) built an early 1-0 lead against Monmouth (2-9) today at University of Maryland's Field Hockey Complex but eventually lost 3-1. Senior Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) put the Hoyas up early with her second goal of the season.
The game's first goal was scored 10 minutes in when Katie Dempsey's (Bryn Mawr, Pa./The Country Day School of Sacred Heart) shot from the left side was saved by Monmouth's Teresa Mathews but bounced right to Mittermiller's stick, who finished it off. Monmouth put heavy pressure on GU's defense the next four minutes as GU goalie Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) made two great saves before Monmouth's Michelle Pieczynski found a rebound to even the score.
With 10 minutes remaining in the half Monmouth broke the tie as Amanda Schoenfeld brought the ball up the right side and squeezed off a shot past Pereira. Pereira ended the half with six saves, and nine for the game.
GU's offense in the second half attacked Monmouth's goal but were unable to convert. The Hoyas ripped nine shots in the period and took seven of their 12 corners. Monmouth was credited with five saves in the half and eight for the game. A final score for the Hawks came with 24 minutes remaining.
Georgetown hits the field again tomorrow, Sunday, September 30 at 4 p.m. The Hoyas face Lock Haven at University of Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md.
