WASHINGTON – Sophomore midfielder Taylor Craig (New Canaan, Conn./Choate Rosemary Hall) scored her first career goal as a member of the Blue & Gray, but Georgetown (2-14, 0-6 BIG EAST) fell 5-1 in Philadelphia, Pa. on Friday afternoon in the BIG EAST matchup against the No. 17 Temple Owls (13-4, 4-2 BIG EAST).
The goal for Georgetown came 12:32 into the second half to help the Hoyas pull within one of the Temple Owls.
The Owls got on top first when senior forward Lauren Hunt tipped a shot by sophomore forward Alyssa Delp in front of the cage a little over six minutes into the game first goal, giving them the early 1-0 lead.
Georgetown’s senior forward Katie Dempsey (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Country Day School of the Sacred Heart) looked to tie up the game 13 minutes in when she took a shot that was saved by Temple’s junior goalie Lizzy Millen. GU sophomore midfielder Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hathaway Brown), who leads the squad in 2013 with 25 shots, had a shot blocked 15:34 into the game.
Temple’s junior forward Amber Youtz went on to score her first goal of the game, assisted by freshman forward Katie Foran, to give the Owls a 2-0 lead going into halftime.
Right at the beginning of the second half, the Hoyas found themselves with a few scoring opportunities. Sophomore forward Sarah Butterfield (Bridgewater, N.J./Oak Knoll) led the team down the field in the first minute as she fired off a shot that was blocked. Georgetown then received its first penalty corner less than a minute later, but the Blue & Gray were not able to score on the opportunity.
Craig then scored her first goal of career 12:32 into the second half to put Georgetown on the board and within one in Philadelphia. The goal came on a rebound that was originally shot by Georgetown’s Weinberg and saved by Temple’s goalie Millen.
Georgetown was only within one goal for about two minutes when Temple tacked on their third goal, giving them the 3-1 when Youtz scored her second goal of the game on a rebound.
The Owls went on to score two more goals to win the BIG EAST Conference matchup by the eventual score of 5-1. Sophomore back Kayla Laughman scored her first goal of the season, assisted by Hunt, with about 11 minutes left in regulation. Temple’s Foran, who tallied an assist earlier in the match, scored 20 seconds after the Owl’s fourth goal. She was assisted by Youtz, who ended the day with five points.
Georgetown’s goalie Rosalie Nolen (West Chester, Pa./Reed Henderson) made her 16th consecutive start of her freshman campaign on Friday. She ended the day with 13 saves.
Temple was Georgetown’s third ranked opponent on the season, having already faced then-ranked No. 16 Louisville and then-ranked No. 2 Connecticut.
The Hoyas will play their final two games of the 2013 season at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md., first on the visiting bench while concluding their season on the home bench.
Georgetown faces the No. 1 Maryland Terrapins in the non-conference matchup at the University of Maryland’s Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in College Park, Md. on Sun., Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. The matchup against Maryland is the second to last game of the season for the Blue & Gray.
