WASHINGTON - The No. 12/16 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (3-2) will travel to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (8-0) on Saturday for a 1 p.m., matinee at Francis E. Henry Stadium against the No. 1/1 Tar Heels. The Hoyas are facing their fifth ranked opponent just six games into the 2014 campaign.
Georgetown led by as many as six goals in the second half, but No. 19/RV Stanford rallied, scoring six unanswered tallies to send the game to overtime, before the Hoyas allowed the game-winner midway through the second overtime in an 11-10 loss at Multi-Sport Field on Sunday afternoon.
Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) and senior attacker Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) each scored three goals to lead the Hoyas, while four other players scored goals for the Blue & Gray.
Freshman goalkeeper Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) took the loss for GU with three saves to her credit.
Tarzian was named to the BIG EAST Honor Roll on Tuesday after leading the Hoyas to a 1-1 week against a pair of ranked opponents. She scored the game winner in an exciting 11-10 decision over No. 6/6 Duke on Wednesday. It was the fifth-career BIG EAST weekly award for Tarzian and the fourth for the Blue & Gray this season.
Tarzian leads the team with 13 points on 11 goals and two assists, while sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) also has 13 points with 10 goals and three assists. Senior midfielders Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) and Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) both have 12 points on the year, while Farrell has 11.
Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) has pulled in a squad-best 19 draw controls, while junior defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) has posted five caused turnovers.
Fisher has tallied 12 saves in five games played.
Carolina beat Elon, 20-5, in a midweek tilt on Wednesday afternoon in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels have already scored 20 or more goals a school-record four times this season. The Tar Heels' 12-game winning streak is tied as the longest in program history.
Georgetown is 10-9 all-time against the Tar Heels, but 3-6 on the road. Last season, GU fell 17-11 in Chapel Hill. Farrell led the way with a career-best three goals.
The opening draw is scheduled for 1 p.m., at Francis E. Henry Stadium. Live stats and a webcast will be available on North Carolina's athletic website.
