Hoyas Use Five Goal Run in Second Half to Defeat Loyola in BIG EAST Semifinals
The Georgetown University women's lacrosse team (13-4; 6-2) hosted Loyola (Md.) (10-8) in the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship and after seeing a halftime lead slip away GU scored five straight during a six minute stretch late in the second half and secured a 16-14 victory.

Georgetown had three players post two goals apiece as senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor), senior midfielder Courtney Caputo (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) and senior midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) all tallied a pair.

The game was evenly matched as the Hoyas outshot the Blue Jays (26-17), had more draw controls (13-12) and went 3-for7 on free position shots. Freshman goalkeeper Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) took the loss in the cage in her first-career start with six saves to her credit.

Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City), sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) and Freedman are all tied for the team lead in points with 16 apiece. Freedman and Tarzian both have 13 goals and three assists, while Etchison has tallied 12 goals and a team-best four assists.



Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) has pulled in a squad-best 26 draw controls, while junior defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) has posted 11 caused turnovers.

Fisher has tallied 21 saves in seven games played.

Loyola allowed just two goals in each half, en route to a 12-4 win over Lehigh in the program's first-ever Patriot League game to be played at Ridley Athletic Complex last Saturday. Senior Marlee Paton and juniors Kara Burke, Annie Thomas and Taryn VanThof all scored two goals in the game, while VanThof won a game-high seven draw controls. Burke finished with a team-best three ground balls.

Georgetown is 9-6 all-time against Loyola and has won five of the last six meetings. Last season, GU won both meetings in the Greyhounds final year in the BIG EAST Conference. The Hoyas won, 14-11, during the regular season and 16-14 in the semifinals of the BIG EAST Championship. Georgetown is 5-3 at home in the series.

The opening draw is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Multi-Sport Field. Live stats and a new and improved webcast will be available through
