Oct. 26, 2007
College Park, Md. - On a water-logged field, the Georgetown University field hockey team lost an 8-2 decision to Rutgers as they celebrated Senior Day today at the University of Maryland Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex, honoring the accomplishments of the senior class - defenders Deirdre McShea (Strafford, Pa./Villa Maria Academy), Lauren Sheets (Lutherville, Md./Garrison Forest) and Kristin Twomey (Larchmont, N.Y./Mamaroneck). The Hoyas end the regular season with an overall record of 2-15 and remain winless in league play with this being the second season the Blue and Gray has competed as a full member. The Scarlet Knights are now 8-9 with a 1-5 mark in BIG EAST Conference play and will play Columbia on Sunday.
Georgetown was the first on the board today. Under the deluge of rain, sophomore Lindsay Moramarco (Andover, Mass./Phillips Academy) took a pass from classmate Kristen Volpe (Pennington, N.J./Hopewell Valley Central) and pushed it past Rutgers goalkeeper Leslie Kelly to give the Hoyas a 1-0 edge.
As the rain poured down, Rutgers scored the equalizer at the 12:01 mark when Jenna Bull scored an unassisted goal as she battled for the ball against a GU defender and sunk it past Hoya goalkeeper Deirdre Crovo (Millersville, Md./Severna Park). Amy Lewis tallied a hat trick for the Scarlet Knights as she reeled off three-consecutive goals to give Rutgers a commanding 4-1 lead.
Junior Katie Lachman (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) broke up the scoring frenzy when she scored her ninth goal of the year, a single-season high for Lachman. As she took on the goalkeeper, both players went down and Lachman found the back of the cage on the left side of the goal to cut the Hoya deficit to two.
Rutgers would go on to score four more goals to win the game 8-2. Lewis tallied an additional goal to give her four for the game.
Crovo played a full game with four saves and allowed eight. Rutgers' Leslie Kelly played the first half allowing two goals and posting zero saves.
The Hoyas were 2-for-2 with shots on goal, allowing no saves to the Rutgers goalkeepers.
