WASHINGTON - The No. 11/10 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (2-0) will host the Princeton University Tigers (1-0) on Friday in a non-conference matchup at Multi-Sport Field. The opening draw is scheduled for 4 p.m.
Earlier this week, sophomore attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll after leading the Hoyas to a 1-0 week in the home opener. Tarzian had five goals and two assists for a team-best seven points in the 13-10 victory over No. 17/16 Towson on Saturday. The attacker went 5-for-5 on shots on goal for an impressive performance in the Blue & Gray's home opener. Tarzian also picked up two ground balls for the afternoon.
It marked Tarzian's second-career nod to the honor roll after earning Second Team All-BIG EAST a season ago.
In the 13-10 victory over No. 17/16 Towson, the Hoyas used a 5-0 run midway through the game to pick up the victory. Tarzian led all scorers with seven points on five goals and two assists. Junior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) and junior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) both tallied a pair of goals, while senior attacker Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) added one goal and two assists on the afternoon for three points. Senior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) had a solid performance on the field with four draw controls, two caused turnovers and two ground balls.
Senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the win in the cage with two saves to her credit.
Tarzian is currently leading the team in scoring with eight points on five goals and three assists, while Freedman and Franklin are second with six pointseach. Senior defender Ashley Hunter (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) has a squad-best three caused turnovers. Freedman has a team-high five draw controls as well this season. Black has a squad-best nine saves.
Princeton is coming off of a 10-5 win over Villanova on Saturday that kicked off the 2013 season. Freshman Alexndra Bruno led the team offensively with two goals and one assist. Freshmen Anya Gersoff and Stephanie Paloscio had two goals apiece, and senior Charlotte Davis had one goal and one assist. Senior defender Caroline Rehfuss was named the Ivy League Defensive Player of the Week after holding Nova's leading scorer without a goal. Rehfuss has one assist, four caused turnovers, three ground balls and one draw control.
Friday's game will be the 18th overall between the two schools in a series that has lasted 16-consecutive years. Princeton holds a 6-11 advantage in the series and has won the last three meetings. Last season, the Hoyas fell, 12-11, in New Jersey. In the last meeting at Multi-Sport Field, the Blue & Gray lost 15-14 in triple overtime.
The opening draw is scheduled for 4 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field.
