WASHINGTON -

The Georgetown University field hockey team (2-15) lost an away game against American (8-7) 3-0 on Sunday afternoon. The Hoyas tallied three defensive saves from Kalli Krumpos (Antioch, Ill./ Antioch Community), Ai Nishino (Rye, N.Y.), and Katy Wingo (Great Falls, Va./Longley).

Georgetown had only registered four defensive saves in four separate games this season, prior to the contest against American. Senior Kalli Krumpos recorded her first career defensive save. It marked the 2nd for Wingo and the 3rd for Nishino this season.

The Hoyas played to a tough 3-0 loss against BIG EAST rival Villanova on Friday, and looked to rebound against the Eagles on Sunday. The American defense kept Georgetown's leading scorers Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) and Annie Wilson (Darien Conn./Darien) from firing any shots. The Eagles had 34 shots on American's senior day, which doubled their season average of 16.8 per game.

Goalies Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) and Kelly Mosser (Fairfield, N.J./West Essex) had five saves each for the Blue & Gray.

The Georgetown field hockey team travels to Providence, R.I. for its final regular-season contest of 2011 against Providence (4-13, 1-4 BIG EAST) on Saturday, October 29 at 1 p.m.
