No. 11/8 Georgetown Comeback Falls Short Against No. 6/5 Duke
With just seconds left to play, the No. 11/8 Georgetown University women's lacrosse team (4-1) had an opportunity to tie the game against No. 6/5 Duke University (6-1) on Saturday at Multi-Sport Field. The last shot was saved as the Hoyas fell, 11-10, for the team's first loss of the season after a late comeback.

The squad needed overtime, but managed to pull out the 17-16 victory over the No. 19/18 Princeton University Tigers Saturday afternoon at Sherrerd Field in Princeton, N.J. Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) scored the game winner at 4:58 to improve the Hoyas to 2-1 overall.

Farrell and sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) both had hat tricks, while senior Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School), sophomore Natalie Miller (Wayne, Pa./Radnor) and senior Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) both tallied two goals and one assist for the game. Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) had five draw controls and a goal in the contest.



Senior defender Maggie Brown (Woodside, Calif./Menlo School) was a key on defense coming up with a big draw control late. Senior goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) took the win with one save, and freshman Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) added four saves in the cage.

Down 9-5 at halftime, the Blue Devils opened the second period with two wins at the draw that resulted in a pair of quick goals. However Maryland answered with a 6-0 scoring run and tacked on four more inside the final seven minutes to put the game out of reach, 19-10, on Saturday. Sophomore Maddy Acton and juniors Kerrin Maurer and Erin Tenneson registered two markers each to pace the Duke attack.

Georgetown is 7-14 all-time against the Blue Devils and 3-7 on the road. Last year, GU fell to Duke at home, 11-10. The Hoyas came back from trailing by three with three minutes remaining, but couldn't find the tying tally. Tarzian and Freedman each had a pair of goals in the loss.

The opening draw is scheduled for 5 p.m., at Koskinen Stadium. The game will be available live on ESPN3. Live stats will be available on Duke's athletic website.
