WASHINGTON - The No. 15/12 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad dropped a tough one to the No. 5/7 University of Florida Gator, 12-9, on Wednesday afternoon at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas were solid statistically, but struggled to find the back of the cage. It was Georgetown's first loss making the Blue & Gray 2-1 on the season.
"We played hard for 60 minutes, but we dug ourselves a hole early," said Head Coach Ricky Fried. "On the positive side, we gave ourselves a lot of opportunities, but we need to take advantage of what we generate."
It was a game of runs early on as Florida scored the first three goals of the contest to take a quick lead. However, GU answered back with four-consecutive scores of its own.
Graduate student attacker Kristen Coleman (Potomac, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) started it out at 22:20 as sophomore attacker Jody Cumberpatch (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) assisted on the play. Freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) made it 2-0 seven minutes later and Cumberpatch added her first goal of the game at 11:39 which was assisted by sophomore midfielder Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation). At 9:03, Farrell hit her first goal of the game to put the Hoyas ahead, 4-3, as Georgetown looked to be rolling.
Florida snapped the run with three of their own and Tarzian traded goals with Florida's Kitty Cullen late in the half making the score 7-5 at the break in favor of the Gators.
The teams went back and forth to open the second as Tarzian connected on her third of the contest and junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) scored at 16:33 to make it 9-7.
Two Gator goals in less than a minute put Florida ahead by four, 11-7, and the Hoyas had little time to come back.
Cumberpatch scored her second of the game at 10:18 to pull Georgetown within three, but once again Florida had an answer.
Coleman tried to spark one last run late, but GU couldn't find a way falling, 12-9.
Tarzian had three goals and an assist to lead the Hoyas, while Cumberpatch added two goals and an assist. Coleman rounded out the multiple scorers with two goals to her credit.
Sophomore midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) had the all-around line with five ground balls, three caused turnovers and one draw control on the afternoon. Sophomore Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the loss in goal with four saves.
Georgetown outshot Florida, 39-21, had six more ground balls, 26-20, and fewer turnovers.
Gabi Wiegand led the way for the Gators with five goals.
The game marked the first of six-consecutive ranked opponents for the Blue & Gray.
Georgetown will be back in action on Saturday as the squad travels to No. 4/3 Duke University on Saturday for a 1 p.m. matchup.
