WASHINGTON - The No. 13 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad lost a close one to the No. 12 Princeton University Tigers (4-3) Sunday afternoon at Princeton Stadium. The Hoyas had a big second half run, but couldn't stop the Tiger counter attack to fall, 12-11. GU is now 2-5 on the season after playing five ranked opponents.
A five-goal run to start the second half looked to have the Hoyas on the right track as Georgetown took a 9-5 lead. In a six-minute span, GU managed five goals including two from sophomore Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis), two from senior Jacqueline Giles (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) and a score by sophomore Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep).
However, Princeton combated the lead with a 7-0 run of its own spanning 19 minutes of the second half.
Georgetown trailed by three with 3:38 remaining, but came close to forcing an extra period as seniors Kathleen Dwyer (Winnetka, Ill./Loyola Acaedemy) and Jordy Kirr (Baltimore, Md./Bryn Mawr School) scored in the final minute making the score 12-11.
Princeton jumped out to an early lead scoring a pair of goals in the first ten minutes. The Blue & Gray had a number of chances, but just couldn't convert as the Tigers made it 3-0.
Midway through the half, Dwyer connected on a free position shot to notch GU's first score of the game. Freshman Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) added one of her own a few minutes later to pull the Hoyas within one.
Princeton answered with a goal, but sophomore Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) once again pulled the Blue & Gray within a goal at 6:19. Dwyer evened the score with her second free position of the afternoon, but once again the Tigers had an answer to make it 5-4 at the break.
Dwyer led the way with three goals while Jackson added two goals and an assist. The Hoyas outshot the Tigers, 28-22, and picked up one more groundball as well as holding a 14-9 advantage in draw controls. Freshman Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the loss in the net with four saves on the afternoon.
Georgetown will be back in action on Friday at Connecticut. The opening draw is scheduled for 4 p.m. Live stats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
