WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's women's field hockey team (2-12, 0-3) faces third ranked Connecticut this Saturday, October 13, at noon and then plays at Fairfield on Sunday, October 14, at 1 p.m. GU has played six of its previous eight games at home. Overall the Hoyas are 1-5 on the road.
Senior Annie Wilson (Darien, Conn./Darien) leads the Hoyas in every offensive category. She is tied for the lead in goals with Catherine Shugrue (Devon, Pa./Episcopal Academy) at four. Wilson tops the Hoyas in assists, recording five and is in the lead for points with 13. Two freshmen have been making an impact offensively as Emily Weinberg (Shaker Heights, Ohio/Lincoln Sudbury) and Meghan Murphy (Walpole, Mass./Walpole) have combined for three goals and an assist.
The Hoyas hosted Rutgers and Cornell this past weekend and lost both, 5-1 and 3-1, respectively. In each contest Georgetown controlled the first half but was unable to carry the momentum into the second period. Against the Scarlet Knights on Friday night GU jumped to a1-0 lead when Wilson netted her third of the season. The Hoyas then allowed five unanswered, including four in the second half. Georgetown celebrated senior day prior to the Cornell matchup and despite another strong first half, which included Wilson scoring again, GU lost 3-1.
Georgetown has fallen to UConn nine straight times leading into Saturday's game. Last year the Huskies defeated GU 10-0. Connecticut has won its first 13 games and is ranked third in the nation. The Huskies boast the current BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week in goalkeeper Sarah Mansfield, who owns six shutouts this year. The Huskies defeated Louisville, 2-1, in their last outing.
Fairfield boasts a 7-7 overall record as they head into weekend matchups with Albany and Georgetown. The Stags have lost four of their last five with the victory coming against Siena 8-0. Early in the season Fairfield strung together a five game winning streak, defeating Yale, Monmouth, Lehigh, St. Joseph's (Pa.) and St. Louis. The last time GU played Fairfield was in 2010. The Stags won 3-2 at home. Shugrue and Wilson tallied for the Hoyas.
