Box Score

WASHINGTON - The third ranked Connecticut women's field hockey team (14-0, 5-0) built a four goal lead in the first half and defeated Georgetown (2-13, 0-4) in Storrs, Conn., 4-1. Georgetown senior Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) tallied her fifth goal of the year and is on a three game goal-scoring streak.

The Hoyas senior goalkeeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) made a career high 17 saves against the high powered UConn offense. Pereira held the Huskies scoreless in the second half and has 100 saves now this season.

The Huskies recorded 39 shots in the game compared to GU's three.

Georgetown fell behind by two goals less than six minutes into the game. The Huskies then tallied two more before halftime. Two of the Huskies scores came off corners as UConn took 17 total.

Wilson netted GU's only score with less than three minutes remaining in the game. Wilson leads Georgetown in goals scored with five this season and ranks first in points with 15.

The Hoyas will look to snap a nine game losing streak on Sunday, October 14, when they travel to Fairfield for a 1 p.m. game.
