WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad scored early and never looked back in an 11-6 victory over the Princeton University Tigers (1-1) Friday afternoon at Multi-Sport Field. The Blue & Gray never trailed to improve to 3-0 overall.
"We wanted to make sure that we were giving up the shots that we wanted to give up," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "It's difficult to stop people in women's lacrosse, so understanding what we want them to take and how we want to defend them is important."
After a long possession by the Tigers, it was Georgetown that got on the board first as senior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) hit a free position three minutes in. That was followed up by an unassisted tally from junior midfielder Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) on the right side of the cage and another from senior attacker Dina Jackson(Potomac, Md./Bullis) from almost the exact same spot.
Ten minutes in, Princeton got on the board with a goal but Georgetown had the answer as freshman attacker Corinne Etchison(Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) connected the free position shot.
The free positions continued to be key as play off of a FPS resulted in a goal by senior attacker Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) from graduate student Erin Lovett(Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) which gave the Blue & Gray the four-goal advantage.
The goals kept coming as junior midfielder Kelyn Freedman(Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) went to the corner on an open free position to make it 6-1.
Princeton stopped the bleeding at 8:02, but in the final two minutes Jackson hit another free position as the Hoyas went into the break leading 7-2.
A minute into the half, Corcoran found the back of the cage as the Blue & Gray started right where it left off.
A Princeton goal reaching over the keeper made it 8-3, but once again momentum was stopped as Freedman fired one in at 22:04. Senior midfielder Sophia Thomas(Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) got into the act at 16:14 bouncing in a score as Georgetown led comfortably by six.
A Jackson tally was sandwiched between two Tiger scores, but no Princeton comeback would come to fruition as Georgetown went on to win 11-6
Jackson led the way with the hat trick, while Corcoran and Freedman both managed two goals. Freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian(Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) tallied two assists in the contest. Bozel notched a goal and five draw controls to lead the team.
Georgetown outshot Princeton, 25-20, and had 11 draw controls to the Tigers' eight. The team was 4-of-9 on free position shots including 4-of-6 in the first half.
On the defensive end of the field, junior goalkeeper Barb Black(Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) had a big day with seven saves and holding the Tigers to just six goals.
The victory was Georgetown's first in the last four meetings with the Tigers.
The Hoyas will travel to Stanford University on Tuesday for a matchup with the Cardinal in Palo Alto, Calif. the game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET. Live stats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
