WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's No. 9/9 women's lacrosse team (8-2; 3-0) encountered another tough BIG EAST opponent at No. 15/15 Loyola (Md.) (5-6; 2-1) and came away victorious with a 14-11 win. In the game there were nine ties and seven lead changes.
"Loyola was really athletic and played very hard," commented Head Coach Ricky Fried. "As the game wore on we were able to dictate the tempo and started to win more draw controls."
Tewaaraton Trophy candidate Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) tallied a season high four goals, matching her output last year against the Greyhounds, to lead Georgetown. Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) had a four points off two goals and two assists.
With the victory the Hoyas stay undefeated in BIG EAST play and are riding a three-game winning streak.
The Hoyas were able to win the ground ball battle against the Greyhounds, 20-13, with Ashley Hunter (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) corralling four. Hunter also caused two of Georgetown's seven caused turnovers. GU outshot Loyola 29-19 and won 14-of-27 draw controls. The 14 goals by the Hoyas were right on average for the 10th ranked offense in the nation.
The first half saw both teams open up two goal leads and they entered halftime even at six. The Hoyas jumped on the Greyhounds early scoring twice in the game's first seven minutes. Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) opened the game's scoring off an assist from Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy). Thomas then notched her first of four on the day.
It was Loyola that made the next run, ripping off four unanswered and building a 4-2 lead. The Hoyas responded with a three goal spree of their own, leading off with a Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) from Corcoran tally. Back to back goals from Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and Freedman gave GU the lead, 5-4, with 7:44 remaining.
Loyola was able to tie the game at five before both teams traded goals to close the half, with GU's score coming off the stick of Thomas.
For the first 14 minutes of the second half both teams took turns with the lead. Loyola scored first before GU's Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and Corcoran teamed up to tie the contest. The Greyhounds scored again before Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) and Freedman evened it at eight.
Two more lead changes and ties ensued with GU's Corinne Etchison (Eldersberg, Md./McDonogh School) and Freedman along with Freedman and Tarzian each teaming up for scores and knotting the count at 10 with just over 20 minutes to go.
At the 16:29 mark Georgetown retook the lead for good, 11-10, when Thomas scored her third of the afternoon. The Hoyas never again relinquished the advantage, as Franklin, Tarzian and Thomas all closed out the Hoya scoring.
Georgetown continues league action next week with games at Marquette and at Notre Dame. GU faces Marquette on Friday, April 12, at 4 p.m. and then takes on the Irish on Sunday, April 14, at 1 p.m.
