WASHINGTON - The No. 13/12 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad dropped a tough one in overtime to the Loyola University (Md.) Greyhounds (5-3, 1-0 BIG EAST) on Saturday at Multi-Sport Field. The Hoyas came back in regulation, but eventually fell in overtime, 15-14. The Blue & Gray is now 4-4 overall and 1-1 in BIG EAST Conference play.
"Loyola played hard, but at the end of the day, we made too many mistakes to win the game," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We fought to come back, but with too many unforced turnovers and poor shooting decisions against a quality opponent, well the outcome speaks for itself."
Leading by one, 12-11, with 12 minutes to play the Hoyas were clinging to the slight advantage. The Greyhounds then gained momentum with a three-goal run spanning just 36 seconds to take a 14-12 lead with time ticking away.
Georgetown battled back to forced the extra period as junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) scored at 1:27 and junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) added the tying goal with 25 seconds remaining to knot it at 14.
In overtime, the Blue & Gray had chances but just couldn't find the back of the cage. With 37 seconds left in OT, Loyola struck as Anne Thomas hit the game winner to make the final 15-14.
Neither team could gain much of an advantage throughout the contest between two evenly matched squads. Georgetown sophomore midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) opened the game with a goal, but Loyola answered with two of its own.
GU staged a three-goal run with two scores from Thomas and one by junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep), but once again, the Greyhounds came back with two more to tie it at four.
Freedman added her second of the game at 15:37, and Loyola managed one before freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and Jackson both found the back of the cage to make it 7-5.
The Greyhounds tallied three goals over the next five minutes, and the rallies weren't done yet. Tarzian and senior attacker Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) gave GU a one-goal lead with seconds remaining before Loyola found a way for one more to tie it at nine at the half.
Tarzian and Thomas combined for the first two goals of the second in the opening seven minutes, but Loyola answered to tie it at 11. Tarzian hit her fourth of the afternoon at 11:41 to give Georgetown the one-goal lead going into the final stretch.
Thomas and Tarzian both had four goals for the game and the freshman added an assist as well. Freedman had two goals, three caused turnovers and three draw controls, while Bozel managed a goal, five draw controls and three ground balls.
GU outshot Loyola, 36-28, and held a 19-14 advantage in draw controls while forcing 14 Greyhound turnovers.
Sophomore goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the loss in the cage with seven saves to her credit.
Georgetown will host American University of Tuesday evening at 7 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field. Live stats and a webcast featuring Chuck Timanus will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
