Oct. 14, 2007
Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University field hockey team lost a heartbreaking 3-2 decision in strokes today at Lafayette in Easton, Pa. The Hoyas drop to 2-12 on the season while the Leopards improve to 5-9. It is the fourth time this season the Hoyas have lost a nailbiter in overtime.
Two scoreless overtime periods prompted a strokes shootout between the Leopards and Hoyas. Lafayette's Laura Fabian was the first to net a goal in the second frame of the strokes period. Freshman Micaela O'Toole's (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) shot was saved by LC's Kelsey Anderson and the Leopards led, 1-0, after the second frame. Amanda Saber found the back of the cage in the third round of the shootout and junior Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) followed up with a goal of her own for the 2-1 Leopard lead. Lafayette took a 3-1 lead on Alison Schooch's goal but sophomore Lindsay Moramarco (Andover, Mass./Phillips Academy) kept the Hoyas in the game when she sunk one past the Lafayette goalkeeper. With a 3-2 lead and heading into the final frame, Meghan Cloonan's shot for Lafayette sailed wide and gave the Hoyas one shot to tie the game and send it to quadruple overtime with sophomore Chelsea Aiken (Hudson, Ohio/Western Reserve Academy) on deck. However, a crucial save from LC's Anderson ended the shootout and Lafayette took the game in strokes.
With just shy of 16 minutes left in the game and the Hoyas trailing 2-1, Lachman scored an unassisted goal to knot the game at two.
Lafayette entered the second half with a renewed energy and scored in the first three minutes when Maggie Condon sunk a goal past Crovo on a dish form Caitlin Titus for the 2-1 lead.
With the Hoyas up 1-0, Lafayette's Laura Fabian scored the equalizer with just over 10 minutes to go in the first frame. The goal was unassisted.
Georgetown was the first on the board with an unassisted goal credited to Moramarco to take a 1-0 lead at the 13:16 mark.
Crovo played the entire game and recorded two saves allowing two goals in regulation. During the shootout, three shots got past Crovo.
The Hoyas return to action next weekend when they travel to Louisville, Ky. for a non-league matchup against Stanford on Saturday at 2 p.m. and a 1 p.m. match at BIG EAST Conference opponent No. 14 Louisville on Sunday.
