WASHINGTON - For the second consecutive game Georgetown University's women's field hockey team (2-10) found itself in a tightly contested match but was unable to come out on top, losing 2-1 to Lock Haven (9-4) Sunday afternoon. After falling behind 1-0 at the half GU's Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) tied the game eight minutes into the second half.
The first half was a defensive stalemate as the ball stayed in the middle of the field the majority of the half. Both teams were able to penetrate the circle few times with GU getting three shots and Lock Haven four. Lock Haven had a clear breakaway with 10 minutes to play in the half but Hoya Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hathaway Brown) dived to block a crossing pass and thwart the Lock Haven advance.
The Eagles finally broke through when Stephanie Ebersole found a streaking Emily Woods for the 1-0 Eagle lead.
GU seized momentum early in the second stanza as Wilson ripped a shot eight minutes in that Lock Haven's Elaina White saved. Wilson found the ball off the rebound and knocked the ball in to even the game. Less than four minutes later Lock Haven grabbed the lead again as Molly Urey beat Hoya keeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) with a shot in the left corner. Pereira finished the day with five saves.
Down one with 11 minutes to play it looked like the Hoyas had tied the game but after a discussion between officials the score was taken off the board due to a penalty. The final minutes were hotly contested but GU could not muster the game tying score.
Georgetown hosts Rutgers on Friday, October 5 at 7 p.m. The game will be played at University of Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md.
