WASHINGTON - The No. 14/15 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (3-5) allowed a late comeback in an 8-5 loss to the No. 15/14 Loyola (Md.) University Greyhounds (7-4) Wednesday evening at Multi-Sport Field. The game was originally scheduled for Tuesday evening, but inclement weather in the District postponed it to Wednesday.
"They packed it in and we shrunk the field to match them," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We didn't respond to that very well and when our best players aren't creating for us, we'll have a hard time at the end of the day."
Five different players scored for Georgetown as senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) led the way with a goal and an assist as well as four caused turnovers.
The game was close as the Hoyas outshot the Greyhounds (18-17), had more draw controls (8-7) and went 2-for6 on free position shots. Freshman goalkeeper Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) took the loss in the cage with five saves to her credit.
After a defensive battle to open the game, the Hoyas got on the board with back-to-back free position goals from junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and freshman attacker Colleen Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Wantagh). Loyola, however, tied it up less than ten minutes later on a pair of unassisted tallies.
At 12:53, the Blue & Gray had goals a minute apart. An interception by Freedman went to sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) for the score. A minute later, Freedman tallied one of her own jumping over the keeper to make it 4-2.
Following a Greyhound timeout, Loyola found the back of the cage to make it 4-3. That score would stand at the break.
Early in the second, senior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) hit an unassisted tally. However, that would be the end of the scoring for the Blue & Gray.
Loyola scored a goal on the ensuing draw control sparking a 5-0 run to take their first lead of the game. Georgetown struggled to find an answer and the final Greyhound tally with eight seconds on the clock made the final 8-5.
The Greyhounds were the Hoyas' seventh-consecutive ranked opponent in the squad's first eight games this season.
The Hoyas will be back in action hosting the University of Louisville on Saturday at Multi-Sport Field at 2 p.m. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
