WASHINGTON - The No. 14/15 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (3-6) will host the No. 12/13 University of Pennsylvania Quakers (5-2) on Tuesday evening in a neutral-site game at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Md., at 6:30 p.m. The contest also closes out non-conference play for the Blue & Gray.
Georgetown fell just short Saturday afternoon, 14-13, in the team's BIG EAST Conference opener against the University of Louisville Cardinals at Multi-Sport Field. After a back-and-forth battle, the Hoyas couldn't find the answer in the closing minutes.
Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) led the way with five goals, while senior midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) and senior attacker Meghan Farrell (Bethesda, Md./Georgetown Visitation) both had two goals and an assist each.
The Hoyas outshot the Cardinals (27-23) and forced 17 UofL turnovers, but lost the battle on draw controls, 19-10, and went just 2-of-8 on free position shots. Sophomore goalkeeper Megan McDonald (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) took the loss in the cage with one save to her credit.
Tarzian leads the squad in scoring with 22 points on 19 goals and three assists. Freedman is second, and sophomore attacker Corinne Etchison (Eldersburg, Md./McDonogh School) is third with 21 and 19 points, respectively. Freedman has 16 goals and a squad-high five assists, while Etchison has tallied 14 goals and a team-best five assists.
Senior attacker Reilly Woodman (Alexandria, Va./St. Stephen's and St. Agnes) has pulled in a squad-best 29 draw controls, while junior defender Adrianne Devine (Loudonville, N.Y./Shaker) has posted 15 caused turnovers.
Freshman Maddy Fisher (Ellicott City, Md./Mount Hebron) has tallied 27 saves in nine games played.
Penn held multiple leads on Vanderbilt in its first-ever trip to Nashville, but had to hold off a late Commodore run to stay atop the charts, staving off Vandy for an 11-10 win on Sunday. Nina Corcoran was the front woman for the Quakers, scoring three goals and adding two assists while Tory Bensen and Lindsey Smith each added two goals in supporting roles as Penn improved to 5-2 in 2014. Seven different players scored for the Quakers, with Sarah Barcia, Lely DeSimone, Courtney Tomchik and Iris Williamson each adding a goal.
Georgetown is 1-0 against the Quakers winning the lone meeting on March 21, 2012 by a score of 11-9. That game was played in Philadelphia, Pa., and Tuesday will mark the first neutral-site contest between the squads.
The opening draw is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Md. Live stats will be available through www.GUHoyas.com.
