WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (1-1) suffered a tough 14-10 loss to the No. 20/19 Towson University Tigers (2-0) Saturday afternoon at Unitas Stadium. The Tigers took an early 6-0 lead and it was too much for the Hoyas to overcome.
"All the credit should go to Towson," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "They came out ready to play and it's difficult to dig yourself out of a 6-0 hole."
The Tigers came out fired up opening with a quick 6-0 run spanning the first seven minutes as the Hoyas were unable to counter. Sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) stopped the bleeding with a goal from freshman attacker Colleen Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Wantagh) at 18:43, but the Tigers answered with two more to make it 8-1 with 4:53 remaining in the half.
The Hoyas ended the first with a 3-0 run including goals from junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and two from senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) to make it 8-4 at the break.
Georgetown cut it to three to open the second as senior attacker Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) scored just two minutes in, but Towson answered with a 3-0 run to make it 11-5.
Tarzian hit a free position at 14:45, but once again the Tigers had an answer with two scores of their own.
Senior midfielder Courtney Caputo (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) and senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) hit goals as the minutes ticked away to pull the Blue & Gray within five, 13-8, but it wasn't enough.
Towson finished out the game with one more at 3:27. Despite a pair of late Hoya tallies, Towson was able to hold on for the 14-10 victory marking GU's first loss of the 2014 season.
Statistically, the Hoyas held the advantage with 13 more shots, 34-21, and a 13-12 advantage on draw controls. The defense also forced 15 Tiger turnovers.
Etchison, Tarzian and Freedman all had multiple goals for the Blue & Gray.
Georgetown will be back in action on Saturday, March 1 at No. 17/17 Princeton University. Live stats and a webcast will be available through the Tigers' athletic website. The opening draw is scheduled for 3 p.m.
