WASHINGTON - The No. 13/15 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (3-4) suffered a heartbreaking, 11-10, overtime loss to the No. 11/7 Johns Hopkins University Blue Jays (10-0) Friday evening at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas battled back from a deficit, but allowed a late goal to eventually fall.
"We wanted to open up the field, frankly I think we got a little bit tight and a little bit tentative and that showed near the end," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We still had 11 shots to their four, we dictated possession of the ball, we won the stat battle, but at the end of the day the only one that really matters is the scoreboard."
Georgetown had three players post two goals apiece as senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor), senior midfielder Courtney Caputo (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) and senior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) all tallied a pair.
The game was evenly matched as the Hoyas outshot the Blue Jays (26-17), had more draw controls (13-12) and went 3-for7 on free position shots. Freshman goalkeeper Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) took the loss in the cage in her first-career start with six saves to her credit.
The Blue Jays opened with a goal on the first draw control of the game sparking a 4-0 run as Georgetown struggled to gain possession. The Blue & Gray finally got on the board as senior defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) went coast to coast to score her first-career goal. Freedman then added another as the Hoyas gained momentum.
Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) made it 4-3, but JHU answered with a score at 23:27.
After a ten-minute drought, GU cut it to one on a free position goal from Franklin. However, the Blue Jays quickly answered making the score 6-4. It was then Caputo tallying her sixth goal of the season and sparking a 4-0 run to end the half.
Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) hit at 5:28 and Franklin tallied her second of the game off of the free position. Freshman attacker Colleen Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Wantagh) rounded out the scoring at 3:21.
Georgetown held Johns Hopkins scoreless for the final 12:49 of the half as the squads went into the break with GU leading 8-6.
The Hoyas kept the momentum in the second as Caputo opened the scoring at 27:22. With two Hoyas out with penalties, the Blue Jays found the back of the cage on two occasions to cut it to one, 9-8. Freedman hit her second of the game on a free position, but JHU quickly answered.
The Hoyas stalled through the final minutes of regulation, but a late turnover was the dagger allowing Hopkins to get the ball back for a final possession. The Blue Jays tied it up with 40 seconds left and GU's last shot was stopped sending the game into overtime tied at 10.
In the first half of overtime, Fisher came up with a big save. However, the ball bounced out and a Blue Jay picked it up sending it back in for the score.
Georgetown had a chance in the closing seconds, but the shot was saved resulting in the 11-10 overtime decision.
The game was the third for the Hoyas this season that has gone into overtime with GU holding a 1-2 record in extra time. The Blue Jays were also Georgetown's six-consecutive ranked opponent in the squad's first seven games this season.
The Hoyas will have a short turnaround hosting No. 16/16 Loyola-Maryland on Tuesday at Multi-Sport Field. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
