WASHINGTON - The No. 14/14 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad downed the University of Cincinnati Bearcast (3-8, 0-4 BIG EAST), 22-4, on Thursday afternoon at Nippert Stadium. The Hoyas were dominant the entire game, opening the three-game road trip with a victory. Georgetown is now 7-4 overall and 3-1 in BIG EAST Conference play.
"We played well on both ends of the field and in all facets of the game today," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "We had a lot of contributions from a lot of different people, and I was happy to get players real game experience."
With two goals in the first minute of the game, the Hoyas set the pace early. Georgetown opened the contest with an 8-0 run and allowed just two goals in the first half.
Junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) started it out just 17 second in, and the Hoyas never looked back. BIG EAST Honor Roll candidate Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) added another in the first minutes to keep GU rolling.
Jackson and graduate student Kristen Coleman (Potomac, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) traded goals over the next ten minutes to make it 6-0, before Bozel added another at 19:20. Freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) completed the run at 18:34 to give the Blue & Gray the eight-goal advantage.
Following UC's score, Tarzian and sophomore midfielder Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) both found the back of the cage before the Bearcats struck again at 3:22 to make it 10-2.
The Hoyas added three goals before the end of the half with sophomores Jody Cumberpatch (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis), Courtney Caputo (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) and Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) all scoring to make it 13-2 at the break.
The second half was much of the same as the Blue & Gray opened with a 7-0 run. Tarzian started it out just 16 seconds in and senior midfielder Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) added another to make it 15-2. Cumberpatch and Caputo both scored their second of the game, before junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) made it 18-2.
Sophomore attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) tallied two in a row prior to the Bearcats hitting their third of the contest at 10:55 to make the score 20-3.
After a six-minute scoring lull, the Hoyas continued to grow the lead as freshman midfielder Mollie Caputo (Manlius, N.Y./Fayetteville Manlius) found the back of the cage at 5:50 and junior attacker Evan O'Neill (Ho-Ho Kus, N.J./Northern Highlands Regional) scored at 4:27.
Cincinnati scored one more making the final 22-4. It marked the second-consecutive game with 20 or more goals and the Hoyas' highest point total of the season.
Tarzian and Jackson led the way with three goals and an assist apiece. GU had 11 assists on 22 goals and senior defender Kelly Barnes (St. David's, Pa./Radnor) posted a squad-best two helpers. The Blue & Gray had 13 different players score goals.
Freshman defender Megan Marinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) managed a team-high six ground balls and senior defender Carly Napora (Columbia, Md./McDonogh School) had three draw controls to her credit.
Georgetown will continue its road trip on Saturday at Louisville. The opening draw is scheduled for noon at the U of L Lacrosse Stadium. Live stats will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
