Three Goals Not Enough as Georgetown Field Hockey Drops League Game at Villanova

Oct. 10, 2007

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University field hockey team pulled within one goal, but it was not enough as No. 20 Villanova tallied two goals in a two-minute span in the second half to win the game, 6-3. The Hoyas drop to 2-11 overall on the season and remain winless in BIG EAST Conference action. The Wildcats improve to 10-3 with a 3-1 slate in league action.

As Wildcats led, 5-2, forward Micaela O'Toole (Arlington, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) continued her successful freshman season finding the back of the cage for the fourth time this season as she took a shot from the right side on an unassisted breakaway. VU's Ally Smith gave the Wildcats the three-goal cushion when she scored with less than five minutes in regulation.

The Hoyas pulled within one goal when sophomore Lindsay Moramarco (Andover, Mass./Phillips Academy) tallied her third goal of the season on a dish from junior Maggie Farrand (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) as the Hoyas trailed, 3-2. Two Wildcat goals within one minute gave Villanova a 5-2 lead, prompting a Georgetown timeout.

Farrand connected on a penalty corner as she was the first to put the Hoyas on the board just before the break. Sophomore Willemijn Wijsman (Hilversum, The Netherlands/International School Hilversum) flicked the corner with senior Lauren Sheets (Lutherville, Md./Garrison Forest) on the setup. Prior to the goal, Villanova held a comfortable 3-0 lead as three different Wildcats scored goals in the first frame.

Georgetown goalkeeper Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) tallied seven saves on the day and allowed six goals as she played the entire game.



Villanova's Maura McCormick spent 70 minutes in goal tallying four saves and allowing three goals.

Georgetown returns to action on Sunday, October 14 when they travel to Easton, Pa. to take on Lafayette at 1 p.m. The Hoyas trail 2-1 in the all-time series against Leopards but won a 2-1 home decision during the 2006 campaign.
