SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad dropped a heartbreaker to the Syracuse University Orange (16-2) on Thursday evening in the BIG EAST Championship semifinal game at the Carrier Dome. The fourth-seeded Hoyas led early on and had chances to tie it late, but couldn't connect falling, 7-6, to the top-seeded Orange. Georgetown is now 9-8 on the season.
"Syracuse made some plays at the end, but I said to the team after the game that I'm really proud of their effort, proud of the execution and the belief that they played with for 60 minutes and we're going to walk out of here with our heads up even though we fell a little short," said Georgetown Head Coach Ricky Fried.
The Hoyas opened the game with a 3-0 run, looking solid on the defensive end and patient on offense. Freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) tallied the first two goals, connecting on a spin move at 22:45 and hitting on a fast break from junior attacker Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy). The second goal was started by a caused turnover from freshman defender Megan Marinelli (Northpoint, N.Y./Northpoint).
Junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) made it 3-0 with a score at 12:41, but the Orange answered to stop the run with free position goals at 8:03 and 6:36.
SU evened the score at 5:55, but once again the Hoyas took the lead as graduate student attacker Kristen Coleman (Potomac, Md./Holy Cross) fired in the free position at 2:51 to make it 4-3 which would stand at the half.
Syracuse opened the second half with its own 3-0 run to take its first lead of the game and go ahead by two, 6-4.
The Blue & Gray ended the scoring drought at 14:58 as junior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) connected to pull the Hoyas within one.
Syracuse gained possession and began to stall as the Hoyas allowed the high-power offense to sit back. After a six-minute Orange stall, junior defender Ashley Hunter (Fort Washington, Md./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) caused a turnover and raced down the field. However, the possession was short lived as Syracuse tallied a caused a turnover to take it back.
Syracuse moved ahead by two with a score at 2:59, but Georgetown didn't back down as junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) made it a one-goal game on a free position shot at 1:24.
In the final minute, the Hoyas had two solid looks at the cage. However, the Blue & Gray couldn't find the tying goal eventually falling, 7-6.
Tarzian led the way for Georgetown with two goals. On defense Hunter had a good game with four ground balls and a caused turnover.
In the cage, sophomore goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) posted six saves.
Georgetown is currently 9-8 overall and ranked in both national polls. The Hoyas will wait to see if the team receives an at-large NCAA Tournament bid. The selection is scheduled for Sunday evening at 9 p.m. It will be available on the NCAA website.
