Hoyas Control First Half but Can't Hold Off Rutgers
Georgetown University's field hockey team hosted Rutgers in a BIG EAST conference battle Friday night and lost 5-1. It was the Hoyas annual Stick-it-to-Cancer game. Georgetown raised over $11,000 to benefit the National Foundation for Cancer Research.

Georgetown is led by sophomore forward Sarah Butterfield (Bridgewater, N.J./Oak Knoll) who leads the team with 13 points on six goals and one assist.  Her six goals rank ninth among all players in the BIG EAST this year.  Butterfield has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll two times this season.  Seven different Hoyas have a goal on the season and eleven women have at least a goal or an assist.

Butterfield has 12 shot attempts this season, 10 of which are on goal for a .883 SOG%.  Sophomore midfielder Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Hathaway Brown) has 21 shots on the season to go along with her two goals and one assist; eight of her shots have been on goal this season.

GU freshman goalie Rosalie Nolen (West Chester, Pa./Reed Henderson) has started all 12 games in net for the Hoyas and leads the BIG EAST with 98 saves.

Every position player has seen action this season for the Hoyas.  Butterfield, Weinberg, Nolen, freshman midfielder Maria McDonald (Center Valley, Pa./Southern Lehigh), sophomore midfielder Louise Chakejian (Chester Springs, Pa./The Episcopal Academy), freshman back Hailey Vann (Yorktown, Va./Tabb) and junior back Elizabeth Mueller (St. Louis, Mo./MICDS) have started all 12 games for Georgetown this season.

The Hoyas are 2-3 in their last five games, but 0-5 on the road this season.

Rutgers has won their last four contests.  Their most recent win was a 4-3 overtime victory over Monmouth at home on Wed., Oct. 9; freshman forward Rachel Yaney scored the game-winning overtime goal, which was her second of the game and fourth goal of the season.
