WASHINGTON - The No. 15/14 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (1-0) will host the Towson University Tigers (0-1) on Saturday in the home opener at Multi-Sport Field. The opening draw is scheduled for 1 p.m.

Earlier this week, junior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll after leading the Hoyas to a 1-0 week in the season opener. It was Freedman's and Georgetown's first weekly award so far this season as well as Freedman's first-career BIG EAST honor. Freedman registered four points, including three goals and an assist in a 16-12 win at Delaware on Saturday. She also had two draw controls to her credit.

In the 16-12 victory over Delaware, the Hoyas led by one before a 6-0 second-half run secured the win. Freedman led the way for the Hoyas with a hat trick and an assist, while senior attacker Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) had three goals on her own. Freshman attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) had a big day in her first game as a Hoya with two goals and as many assists. Georgetown outshot Delaware, 33-24, and managed 17 draw controls to the Blue Hens' 13.

On defense, the Hoyas posted eight caused turnovers and in the net, senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) had seven saves for the afternoon.

Freedman and Etchison are currently leading the team in scoring with four points each. Senior defender Ashley Hunter (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) and sophomore defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) both have a squad-best two caused turnovers. Senior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) and graduate student Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) has three draw controls each this season. Black has a squad-best seven saves.

 

 

The Tigers are coming off a tough 9-6 loss to No. 5 North Carolina in their season opener. Graduate student Jackie LaMonica and sophomore Sarah Maloof led the Tigers with two goals and one assist each. Senior Alexa Demski had four caused turnovers while sophomore Kelsea Donnelly tied her career high with eight saves.

Saturday's game will be the 16th overall between the two schools and first since the 2005 season. Georgetown holds a 9-7 advantage in the series and has won the last nine meetings. The last meeting was the first round of the 2005 NCAA Tournament where the Blue & Gray claimed a 15-14 victory.

The opening draw is scheduled for 1 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field.
