No. 15/14 Hoyas Upset No. 2/2 North Carolina, 9-8
Following some tough losses to ranked opponents, the No. 15/14 Georgetown University women's lacrosse team (3-3) was in need of a win. The Blue & Gray managed to do just that on Saturday with a thrilling 9-8 comeback victory over the No. 2/2 University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Tar Heels (8-1) at Multi-Sport Field. The win improved Georgetown to 3-3 overall while handing the Tar Heels' their first loss of the season.

Six Hoyas have scored at least one point in all six of Georgetown's games this season. Freedman and Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) are tied for the Hoya lead in goals with 15 apiece. Tarzian, who was added to the Tewaaraton Watch List this week, is on a 16-game streak of recording at least one point and leads the team in points with 23. Freedman is second with 17. Fellow Hoyas who have scored at least one point in every game of 2013 are Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis), 13 points (9g-4a), Corinne Etchison (Eldersberg, Md./McDonogh School), 12 points (8g-4a), Rosie Corcoran (Point Lookout, N.Y./Sacred Heart Academy), 12 points (8g-4a) and Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation), 10 points (6g-4a).


The Hoya defense has held three of its past four opponents to eight goals or less and to 20 or fewer shots. GU has also led or tied its opponent in ground balls in every contest and has been more successful in clears in each game. On the year the Hoyas have 93 total ground balls, led by Adrianne Devine's (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) 10. GU has been successful on clears in .887 of its attempts compared to .682 for its opponents.

North Carolina is on a six game winning streak after falling in its season opener against Florida, 5-3. The Tar Heels have wins over Towson, Richmond, Northwestern, Penn, Virginia and High Point. This past Wednesday UNC earned a 15-6 win at High Point, opening a 10-1 lead at halftime. The Tar Heel defense has been stellar, limiting opponents to just over six goals and 17 shots a game. Goalie Lauren Maksym has a .538 save percentage and a 5.33 GAA. On offense five Tar Heels have 10 points or more, led by Kara Cannizzaro with 16 goals and two assists.

In the overall series between Georgetown and North Carolina the Hoyas own a 10-8 advantage but UNC has won four of the last five. Last season the Hoyas broke UNC's four game win streak against GU by winning a 9-8 game in Washington. UNC entered the game ranked second but GU's Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) had four scores and the Hoyas netted four straight to end the second half after falling behind 8-5.
