Final Stats

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University field hockey team (6-8, 1-2 BIG EAST) lost a close one to the Fairfield University Stags (8-6) ,3-2, on Sunday afternoon at the University Field in Fairfield, Conn. Sophomore forwards Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) and Charlotte Tierney (Rye, N.Y./Holy Child) each had a goal apiece for the Hoyas.

The Stags struck first within thirty seconds of the game when Amanda Sullivan received a cross from Marit Westenberg and hit it into the back of the goal.

Shugrue struck for the Blue & Gray at the 24:17 mark converting on the penalty corner assisted by Annika Bannon (Hopkinton, Mass./Notre Dame Academy) and Sophia Pifer (Coopersburg, Pa./Southern Lehigh) tying the game.

Less than five minutes later, Fairfield took the lead once again at 28:20 when Westenburg scored an unassisted goal on the breakaway to take a 2-1 advantage into halftime.

Fairfield opened the second half with a goal from Christy Sarsinic with the cross from Jill Keeney.

Tierney scored her eighth goal of the season at 65:17 after Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) dribbled through traffic and delivered Tierney the cross. Tierney's goal cut the deficit to 3-2, but it was too late as the Stags held off the Hoyas comeback to win by that score.

Georgetown will return home this week as it will take on No. 9 Syracuse on Saturday Oct. 16 at 1 p.m. and conclude the weekend with Towson on Sunday Oct. 17 at 1 p.m. Both games will be played at the William I. Jacobs Recreational Complex on the campus of American University. Live stats will be available for both games on www.guhoyas.com.
