WASHINGTON, DC. ? Nine Hoyas scored to lead the #5 Georgetown University women?s lacrosse team its third-consecutive BIG EAST Conference title with a 15-9 victory over Connecticut on Sunday, April 27, on North Kehoe Field. Senior attacker Wick Stanwick (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and junior attacker Anouk Peters (Ipswich, Mass./Millbrook School) led GU in scoring with three goals apiece. Stanwick also contributed three assists in the win. Sophomore attacker Tracy Mullaney led the Huskies with three goals and an assist. Georgetown improves to 12-3 overall and wraps up BIG EAST competition with a perfect 6-0 mark. Connecticut falls to 7-7 overall 1-4 in league play.
Georgetown?s offense dominated the first period, although the Connecticut did score the first goal of the day. Mullaney converted off a free position shot to give the Huskies their only lead of the game. The Hoyas responded with eight-straight goals to take an 8-1 lead with 4:54 to play in the first half. Senior midfielder Liz Ryan (Baltimore, Md./Roland Park Country School) began the run at 25:01 when she took a pass from senior attacker Tracy Weickel (Huntington, N.Y./Huntington) and fired it into the net. Stanwick tallied three goals during the period, with Peters, sophomore midfielder Ali Chambers (Valley Cottage, N.Y./Nyack), sophomore attacker Sarah Oliphant (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) and sophomore midfielder Lauryn Bernier (Strafford, Pa./Conestoga) each posting a goal apiece during the run. Mullaney broke Connecticut?s scoring drought with an unassisted goal at 4:13, then struck again at 2:01 with a goal off a free position shot, but the Hoyas would close out the first period with back-to-back goals. Junior defender Michi Ellers (Swarthmore, Pa./Strath Haven) scooped up a ground ball off a missed GU shot and shot it into the cage for the score with just 15.4 seconds left. Then, with only .5 seconds on the clock, Peters struck for her second goal of the day to give Georgetown a 9-3 lead at the intermission.
The second half opened with the two teams trading goals. Sophomore attacker Sarah Oliphant (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis) notched an unassisted goal just 1:30 into the second stanza; however, UConn?s Heather Levins answered a minute later on a free position to make the score 11-4. Junior midfielder Gloria Lozano (Pittsburgh, Pa./Sewickley) stepped up with a goal at 22:52, but Connecticut?s Tammy Michel and Karianne Lauri responded with two straight goals to cut the Hoya lead to 12-6. Lozano struck again at 18:05, followed by a goal from Peters at 15:03 to push the GU advantage to eight points (14-6). UConn refused to fold and bounced back with consecutive goals, the first from Heather Bliss and the second from Abby VanDeusen, to pull to within six at 14-8. Freshman midfielder Paige Andrews (Newton Square, Pa./Archbishop Carroll) scored the first goal of her collegiate career at 1:45 to make the score 15-8 in favor of the Hoyas, followed by the Huskies? Dana Stewart?s assisted goal at 1:22 to make the final score 15-9 in favor of the Hoyas.
Sophomore Sarah Robinson (Great Falls, Va./St. Mark?s School) and freshman Dosha Stright (West Chester, Pa./Westtown School) split time in goal again for the Hoyas. Stright started and played the first half, making three saves while allowing three goals. Robinson played the second half, turning away 11 UConn shots while allowing six goals. Senior April Pollack and sophomore Jennifer Wong shared goalkeeping duties for Connecticut. Pollack recorded 11 saves while giving up 12 goals. Wong rejected four GU shots and allowed three goals.
With today?s victory, Georgetown earns its sixth-consecutive trip to the NCAA Championships. The Hoyas will learn both their seed and opponent on Sunday, May 4, during the NCAA Division I Championship selection show at 8:00 p.m. EST.
