WASHINGTON - Georgetown University's No. 11/8 women's lacrosse team (4-0) plays host to No. 6/5 Duke University (5-1) on Saturday, March 9. The first draw is set for 2:30 p.m. at Georgetown's Multi-Sport Field.
Georgetown has won its first four games; matching the Hoyas best start since the 2008 season. Georgetown has won both of its previous home contests taking down Towson and Princeton. Duke will be the highest ranked opponent GU has faced this season.
Earlier this week on Tuesday afternoon Georgetown defeated the No. 18/rv Stanford Cardinal 15-8 in Palo Alto, Calif. The Hoyas' Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) posted her second five goal game of the season. Seven different Hoyas scored in the game with three other multiple goal scorers. Stanford jumped to a 4-2 lead but GU scored four unanswered and never allowed Stanford to retake the lead. In the middle of the second stanza GU again exploded offensively, netting five straight and opening a 15-7 advantage.
The Hoya defense limited its third straight opponent to 10 goals or less. Junior goalie Barb Black (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls), a BIG EAST Honor Roll member this past week, earned her fourth win in the cage by holding Stanford to eight goals and recording eight saves. GU is allowing only nine goals on average.
Georgetown is averaging 13.75 goals a contest and is taking over 28 shots a game. Tarzian leads the goal scorers with 10. Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) has eight goals while Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) and Corinne Etchison (Eldersberg, Md./McDonogh School) both have netted seven scores. Georgetown has also recorded 15 assists compared to its opponent's eight. Tarzian has five helpers to top the list and both Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy) and Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) each have four.
Five Hoyas have recorded four caused turnovers and Georgetown as a team has 33 total caused turnovers. Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation), Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep), Tewaaraton Trophy candidate Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep), Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) and Ashley Hunter (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's & St. Agnes) all top the caused turnover list. Freedman leads the way in draw controls with 10 as Georgetown has won 55-of-99 draws.
Duke has built a 5-1 record in 2013 with wins against Virginia Tech, Presbyterian, Richmond, William & Mary and Vanderbilt. All five of the Blue Devil victories came at home; their lone loss was a 15-6 contest at #2 Maryland. Duke is averaging over 15 goals a game and limiting opponents to just nine. Four Blue Devils have double digit goals, led by leading goal and assist producer, Kerrin Maurer, who has 16 goals and 14 assists. Taylor Virden leads the team in ground balls with 14 and is second in draw controls with 20.
Georgetown and Duke have faced each other for 17 straight seasons. In 12 of the 20 overall contests the final difference has been two goals or less. The Blue Devils own a 13-7 all-time record against the Hoyas and have won three straight along with eight of the last ten. GU's last win against Duke came in 2009 when the Hoyas won 12-11. Last season Duke won in Durham, N.C. 14-7. Six different Hoyas scored in the game, led by midfielder Bozel's two tallies.
