WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad opened the 2013 season with a 16-12 victory against the University of Delaware Blue Hens (0-1) Saturday afternoon in Newark, Del. The Hoyas led by one before a 6-0 second-half run secured the win to improve the Hoyas to 1-0 on the season.
"I'm happy with the outcome since it was our first game of the season," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We were tentative early, but we gave a consistent effort and really picked it up in the second half playing well on both ends of the field."
The teams traded goals throughout much of the first half. At 17:57, the Blue & Gray staged a 4-1 run that was sparked by a goal from freshman attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School). Junior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) and junior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) both found the back of the net before Etchison bookended the run to make it 6-3 at 11:39.
Delaware answered with a 3-1 run of its own, but Franklin and Freedman tallied scores in the final minute of the half to make the score 9-6 at the break.
The Blue Hens opened the second with two quick goals to pull within one, but that was the point when the Blue & Gray began to get a rhythm.
Senior attacker Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) started it off with a free position goal at 24:49. Freedman added one with the assist by Etchison before junior midfielder Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) hit a second free position. Bozel's second of the run was followed by back-to-back free position scores from freshman midfielder Kristen Bandos (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Academy of Notre Dame of Namur) to make it 15-8 at 6:21.
The Hoyas defense was on point during the run holding the Blue Hens scoreless for 21 minutes.
In the final four minutes, Delaware attempted a comeback, but it was too late.
A goal at 3:52 from senior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis School) made the final 16-12 at the final whistle.
Freedman led the way for the Hoyas with a hat trick and an assist, while Bozel had three goals on her own. Etchison had a big day in her first game as a Hoya with two goals and as many assists.
Georgetown outshot Delaware, 33-24, and managed 17 draw controls to the Blue Hens' 13.
On defense, the Hoyas posted eight caused turnovers and in the net, senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) had seven saves for the afternoon.
Georgetown will host the Towson University Tigers in its home opener next Saturday at 1 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
