WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (8-7, 5-1 BIG EAST) clinched the second seed in the BIG EAST Tournament with a 13-6 victory over the Temple Owls (6-9, 3-3 BIG EAST) Saturday afternoon on Senior Day at Multi-Sport Field. Additionally, Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried became the winningest coach in program history with 114 victories in ten seasons on the Hilltop.
"Despite the record, my proudest moment today was seeing all nine of our seniors start the game," said Fried. "They have all contributed so much through their careers and I'm so thankful for their dedication and commitment. They are the reason we've been able to maintain such a successful program."
Sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) led the way tying her career high with four goals and one assist. After scoring her first two goals of the season in the game prior, sophomore midfielder Kristen Bandos (Bryn Mawr, Pa./Academy of Notre Dame of Namur) doubled that with four goals on the afternoon.
Senior defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) led the defense with four caused turnovers and five ground balls, while sophomore midfielder Kelsey Perselay (Chatham, N.J./Chatham) had six draw controls in the contest.
Senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the win in the cage with three saves, while freshman Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) added five saves for the game.
Georgetown outshot Temple, 31-20, and had 13 draw controls to TU's eight.
The Owls opened the scoring early on, but Georgetown answered with a 3-0 run. Senior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) hit an unassisted tally at 24:32 and Bandos added her first of the game at 22:02. Etchison made it 3-1 at 15:56 before Temple could counter.
Despite TU's goal, the Blue & Gray once again staged a 3-0 run with senior attacker Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) starting it off and Etchison adding two more.
Temple stopped the momentum, but GU closed out the half with a 4-0 spurt over the final four minutes including the true hat trick from Bandos giving her four in the game. Franklin posted the 10th of the contest to make it 10-3 at the break.
"A lot of people are getting opportunities and we never know who will step up for us on any given day," said Fried. "Kristen Bandos made the most of her opportunity today and it's nice that opposing teams can't just focus on a few players when preparing for us."
The Owls opened the scoring in the second half, but Farrell found the back of the cage from junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) to spark a 2-0 run. Etchison powered her way into the crease for her fourth of the contest.
Temple scored at 21:35, but that would be it for either team until senior midfielder Courtney Caputo (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) hit a goal at 10:37 ending the 11-minute drought for both sides to make it 13-5.
As the minutes ticked away, Temple battled to come back with a goal at 5:08, however, it would not be enough as GU went on to win 13-6.
The victory gives the Blue & Gray the second seed in the BIG EAST Tournament and the Hoyas could still win a share of the BIG EAST regular season crown.
The Hoyas will be back in action on Saturday as the squad closes out the regular season at the University of Cincinnati in a 2 p.m., matchup. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
