Charlotte Tierney (Rye, N.Y./Holy Child) had two goals, while Kimberly Keating (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy), Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy), and Laura Thistle (Glenside, Pa./Mount Saint Joseph Academy), all had one goal apiece. Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) had two assists in the victory.

The Hoyas enter the contest following two losses against Davidson (1-0) and LaSalle (1-0).  Georgetown has averaged 14 shots per game, compared to their opponents with 15.5 shots per game.  They have also inserted more penalty corners, with 22, compared to their opponents with ten.

Shugrue has one goal for the 2011 season. Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) has ten saves.
