COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Georgetown University's field hockey team (2-15, 0-5) lost 7-2 to the third ranked Syracuse Orange (14-1, 5-0) Friday afternoon at University of Maryland's Field Hockey Complex. Georgetown's leading scorer senior Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) set a new career high with her sixth goal of the season while fellow senior Caitlin Hickey (Milton, Mass./Milton Academy) posted her first of the year.
Syracuse did not take long in lighting up the scoreboard as the Orange scored one minute into the game. Two more goals from Syracuse, one off a set corner play and the other after a penalty stroke, gave the Orange an early 3-0 advantage.
Georgetown cut the lead to 3-1 when Hickey's set play corner shot was saved by SU goalkeeper Leann Stiver. With some early Halloween trickery the ball ricocheted off Stiver's pad and GU's Wilson was there to finish off the shot. Wilson now has a team high six goals and 17 points this season.
SU was able to add two goals from Lauren Brooks before halftime and entered the break up 5-1.
The second half saw the Hoyas put together a strong defensive effort, limiting the powerful Orange offense to two goals. Hoya goalkeeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) totaled 14 saves on the day including eight in the first stanza and six in the second. Pereira allowed six goals while fellow keeper Emma Hamstra (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor Pioneer) allowed one score on the penalty stroke.
Georgetown scored its second goal of the afternoon on a set corner play. From the left side of the goal senior Claire Mittermiller (La Jolla, Calif./La Jolla) passed directly into fellow senior Hickey, who ripped a shot past SU's second half keeper Jess Jecko.
The Hoyas close the season next weekend with a Friday night game at Villanova on October 26 and then travel to Lafayette on Sunday, October 28, for a 2 p.m. contest.
