Field Hockey Loses Non-Conference Game Against Stanford

Oct. 20, 2007

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown University field hockey team lost a 10-2 decision to non-league opponent Stanford today at Trager Stadium in Louisville, Ky. The Hoyas are now 2-13 while the Cardinal is now 8-5. Stanford now leads the all-time series, 2-0.

Trailing 2-0, sophomore Willemijn Wijsman (Hilversum, The Netherlands/International School Hilversum) flicked a penalty corner to senior Lauren Sheets (Lutherville, Md./Garrison Forest) who drag-flicked the set to junior Maggie Farrand (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr) who found the back of the cage on the first shot. It was the seventh goal of the season for Farrand, as she surpasses her single-season goal record of six, set during the 2005 campaign.

Stanford led 4-2 after the first frame and tacked on three more before sophomore Lindsay Moramarco (Andover, Mass./Phillips Academy) fired a shot past Stanford goalkeeper Madison Bell on the left side of the cage on a dish from Farrand who was at the top of the circle. Stanford went on to score two more for the 10-2 final.

Junior goalkeeper Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park) put up a career-high 16 saves while allowing 10 goals in a full 70 minutes of play.

The Cardinal outshot the Hoyas 34-11 and produced nine penalty corner opportunities to Georgetown's five.

The Hoyas return to action tomorrow, October 21 when they again take the field at Trager Stadium, this time against the 13th-ranked Louisville squad for a 1 p.m. game. The Hoyas lost the only meeting with the Cardinals during the 2006 campaign when the Blue and Gray lost a 5-0 game at home.
