WASHINGTON - The No. 14/14 Georgetown University women's lacrosse team downed the University of Louisville Cardinals (3-8, 1-3 BIG EAST), 19-11, Saturday the U of L Lacrosse Stadium. Junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Luthervile, Md./Maryvale Prep) led the squad with five goals as the Hoyas improved to 8-4 overall and 4-1 in BIG EAST play.
"It's always nice to get two important BIG EAST road wins at this point of the season," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried. "I was happy to see so many people continue to contribute."
The Hoyas started strong opening the game with a 4-0 run. Junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) started it off and just 23 seconds later graduate student attacker Kristen Coleman (Potomac, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) made it 2-0. Jackson connected on her second of the game and freshman midfielder Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) rounded out the run at 23:19.
After early GU Scores, the Cardinals answered with 4-0 run of their own spanning more than eight minutes to tie it at 14:24.
Thomas ended the spurt and sparked one of her own at 13:13. Sophomore attacker Jody Cumberpatch (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) added two scores in the run and junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) included one of her own to make it 8-4 with eight minutes to go in the half.
The Cards found the back of the cage, but Bozel and Thomas scored before the half to make it 10-5 at the break.
The second half started like the first as the Blue & Gray opened with a 4-0 run. Sophomore midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) began it just a minute in, and Coleman then hit two more. Thomas' hat trick completed the run to make the score 14-5.
Louisville answered with a pair of scores, but the Hoyas continued to build the advantage as freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and Thomas both found the back of the cage.
The Cardinals attempted to stage rallies, but it was not enough as Georgetown continued to score.
Sophomore attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) finished it off with a goal at 2:47 and U of L added one more to make the final 19-11.
Thomas led the way with five goals and one assist, while Coleman added three goals and an assist. Senior attacker Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) posted a team-best five draw controls and senior defender Carly Napora (Columbia, Md./McDonogh School) had three caused turnovers.
