WASHINGTON -

The Georgetown University field hockey team (2-8) gave up three goals after taking a 2-0 lead at Rutgers (3-7) on Friday, September 30. The Hoyas came out strong with goals from Annie Wilson (Darien Conn./Darien), and Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla Calif./La Jolla). Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) had 16 saves for the Blue and Gray.

Wilson struck first after receiving the ball at the top of the circle, beating one defender, and sneaking the ball around the goalie. Mittermiller tallied her goal off of several rebounded shots by Wilson. Both scores were unassisted.

The Scarlet Knights fired back at the end of the first half, evening the score in just five minutes. Both Rutgers goals were a result of set corners. Rutgers battled back for the win in the last minute of the second half. Nicole Gentile scored the game winner for the Scarlet Knights.

The Hoyas fall to 0-2 in conference play, while Rutgers advances to 1-2 in the BIG EAST.

Georgetown University field hockey continues their road trip at Monmouth on Sunday, October 2 at noon.
