WASHINGTON - The No. 10/9 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (1-0) opened the season on a good note Saturday with a 19-11 victory over the University of Delaware Blue Hens (0-1) at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas picked up the first win gaining momentum for a tough three-game road stretch in the coming weeks.
"For a first game, we're pleased with where we are," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We did a lot of good things, but in the same vein, there are a lot of areas we can improve on. We responded well to the mistakes we did make, especially going into the second half, so overall we're pleased with the result."
Georgetown jumped out to a quick lead as sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersberg, Md./McDonogh School) and senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) both scored to make it 2-0. The Blue Hens answered at 23:47, but the Hoyas put together a 4-0 run sparked by an unassisted tally from freshman attacker Colleen Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Wantagh) to make it 6-1.
Over the next 12 minutes, Delaware went almost goal-for-goal against the Hoyas battling back and cutting it to three on three different occasions. The defense stood strong in the final minutes of the first half and Georgetown netted a pair of goals to go into the break leading, 13-8.
The Blue & Gray opened the second half with three-consecutive goals to get some breathing room. Freedman hit an unassisted tally at 27:37 and Etchison followed that with a score less than a minute later. Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) notched the final one at the 26:01 mark for a flurry of goals.
Despite the Blue Hens' score, Georgetown continued to pile them on with Lovett and junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) both getting into the act.
Senior Hannah Franklin's (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) fourth tally of the contest was sandwiched in between two late Delaware goals making the final 19-11 as the Hoyas cruised to victory.
Etchison and Franklin both had four goals and an assist on the afternoon for five points apiece. Lovett added the hat trick in her debut on the Hilltop, while Freedman and Tarzian both notched two goals and two assists each.
Georgetown held a huge 24-8 advantage in draw controls and outshot the Blue Hens, 39-20. GU was 3-of-5 on free position attempts as well. The defense caused 16 turnovers and senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) was awarded the win in the cage with two saves to her credit.
Georgetown will be back in action on Saturday at No. 19/19 Towson University in a 3 p.m., matchup at Unitas Stadium. Live stats and a webcast will be available through the Tigers' athletic website.
