COLLEGE PARK, MD. -Georgetown University's field hockey team (2-12) honored its 10 seniors prior to the start of its contest with Cornell (5-6) today at University of Maryland's Field Hockey Complex. All 10 seniors started the game for the Hoyas and battled hard but GU lost 3-1 during a wet and cool afternoon.
For the second straight contest the Hoyas controlled the action for the majority of the first half. The Hoya defense buckled 28 seconds into the game when Cornell's Brittany Thompson streaked down the middle for a quick strike. Then after settling down Georgetown went to work offensively at the six minute mark as seniors Molly McShea (Strafford, Pa./Villa Maria Academy) and Charlotte Tierney (Rye, N.Y./Holy Child) each peppered the Cornell net twice over a span of two minutes but neither player could convert.
After constant Hoya pressure a corner by senior Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) was passed into senior Katy Wingo (Great Falls, Va./Langley) at the 14-minute mark. Wingo ripped a shot from the top of the circle which was saved by Cornell keeper Carolyn Horner but the ball squirted out to the right side of the net where fellow senior Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) scored her team tying fourth of the year. With that the game was tied 1-1.
Just seven minutes until the break Cornell grabbed a 2-1 lead with a tally from Hannah Balleza. The one goal lead stood for the game's next 39 minutes until a Cornell corner produced a two-goal advantage.
The Hoyas ended the game with 11 shots compared to eight for Cornell and corners were relatively even with GU attempting five and Cornell six. GU goalkeeper senior Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) recorded four saves.
Georgetown hits the road for its next two affairs, starting with an Oct. 13 match up at No. 5 UConn at 12 noon. Then on Oct. 14 GU plays at Fairfield at 1 p.m.
