WASHINGTON - The No. 7 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad dropped its season opener to the No. 2 Northwestern University Wildcats (5-0) Saturday afternoon at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas stayed with the 2010 national runners-up in the first, but couldn't find the scoring in the second half to drop to 0-1 on the year.

Northwestern scored first, but Georgetown came back with a pair of goals by Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) and Kathleen Dwyer (Winnetka, Ill./Loyola Academy). That would be GU's only lead as NU scored two more. Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) tied it at 17:32, but again, the Wildcats answered. A 9-2 run closed out the half as Georgetown went from leading to down by six at the half, 11-5.

Things didn't improve for the Blue & Gray in the second as Northwestern opened the half with a pair of scores. Jacqueline Giles answered for Georgetown and back-to-back goals from Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) made the score 14-8 just five minutes in.

Despite working to get back into the game, the Hoyas couldn't handle the hot-shooting Wildcats who eventually won, 24-15.

Jackson and Dwyer led the squad with three goals each, while four other players added two goals apiece. Jordy Kirr (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr School) managed five assists in the game.

GU was outshot 32-38 and had just two saves to Northwestern's 11. The Wildcats picked up 34 ground balls to Georgetown's 14. The veteran Hoya defense caused 16 NU turnovers.

The Blue & Gray will be back in action on Wednesday as the squad heads to Gainesville, Fla., to face the University of Florida Gators. The opening draw is set for 6:30 p.m.
