WASHINGTON - The No. 15/14 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (2-3) dropped a 16-12 decision to the John Hopkins University Blue Jays (5-2) on Wednesday night at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas made a comeback in the final four minutes, but couldn't overcome a sluggish start to fall to 2-3 on the season.
"We dug a big hole for ourselves in the beginning and I thought Hopkins came out more prepared and played with more energy and more emotion," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "I thought the last four minutes of the game we played the way we're capable of playing consistently, but can't play four minutes out of sixty and expect to beat a team of that caliber."
Hopkins caught fire early, scoring the first four goals of the contest before the Hoyas could get on the board. Junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) tallied a goal at 21:51, but it wasn't enough as JHU answered with three more to force the Hoyas into a 7-1 hole.
Freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) took the pass from Jackson to make it 7-2 at 14:16 and after another Blue Jay score, junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) gave the Hoyas one more.
Hopkins rallied netting a pair of goals in the final two minutes, but with one second remaining in the half, sophomore midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) found the back of the cage as Thomas assisted to make it 10-4 going into the break.
Georgetown pulled within five one minute into the second half as Jackson notched her second of the game, but the run was short lived as Hopkins answered at 25:40. Franklin managed her second of the evening at 24:32 to once again pull within five, but the Blue Jays had an answer rattling off three in a row to make the score 14-6 with 16:50 remaining.
In the final 15 minutes of the game, the Hoyas looked good outscoring JHU, 6-2, but it was too little, too late.
Thomas tallied her second of the evening at 14:51 and two minutes later, junior attacker Evan O'Neill (Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J./Northern Highlands Regional) found the back of the cage.
A goal by sophomore midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) was sandwiched between two Hopkins scores, but all was not lost as GU finished the game with a three-goal run.
Senior midfielder Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) scored at 3:28 and junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Vally, Md./Notre Dame Prep) added another a minute later. Tarzian rounded out the scoring to pull Georgetown within four with 1:49 remaining.
Despite the momentum, the Hoyas couldn't pull it out falling, 16-12.
For the third-consecutive game, GU outshot its opponent in a loss with the 36-26 advantage. The Hoyas also had 15 ground balls to Hopkins' 11 as well as forcing 15 Blue Jay turnovers.
GU struggled shooting the ball going 0-of-8 on free position shots.
Georgetown will be back in action on Saturday as the squad hosts the No. 2/2 University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Tar Heels. The opening draw is scheduled for 1 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field.
