WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's women's field hockey team (2-8, 0-2) plays host this weekend against Monmouth and Lock Haven. On Saturday, September 29, GU and Monmouth start at 1 p.m. and on Sunday, September 30, the Hoyas and Lady Eagles begin at 4 p.m. Both games will be contested in College Park, Md. at the University of Maryland's Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex.

Nine different Hoyas have netted goals this season. Two seniors Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) and Kimberly Keating (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Merion Mercy Academy) are joined by freshman Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hathaway Brown) as GU's multiple goal scorers.

Two Georgetown players are ranked in the top tier of the BIG EAST Conference. Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) is tied for sixth in assists per game averaging 0.50. Wilson has five assists this season and ranks second on the team in points with seven. Senior goalkeeper Briana Pereira (Medford, N.J./Shawnee) also is ranked high in the conference. Pereira is second in saves per game, averaging 6.0.

Last weekend GU lost two games on the road, losing 4-2 against league foe Louisville and 7-1 at Miami (Ohio). At Louisville the Hoyas built an early 2-0 lead but allowed four unanswered. At Miami the Red Hawks jumped out to a three goal first half lead before winning by six.

In 2011 Georgetown played both Monmouth and Lock Haven. In both games the Hoyas grabbed one goal leads early but were unable to hold onto the advantage. At Lock Haven on September 24, 2011 the Hoyas fell 3-1 as GU's Caitlin Hickey (Milton, Mass./Milton Academy) netted the Hoya goal. In early October of last season GU played at Monmouth and after a Shugrue goal the Hawks scored five straight for a 5-1 victory. Monmouth owns a 2-1 overall series record against GU.

 

 

Monmouth is 1-9 this season. The Hawks have lost four games by one goal. Monmouth picked up its first win at St. Joseph's (Pa.), 5-1. Michelle Pieczynski is the team leader in scoring with 14 points and six goals.
