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.

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.
