WASHINGTON - The No. 15/16 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (8-7, 4-3 BIG EAST) will close out the regular season against the Rutgers University Scarlet Knights (9-6, 4-3 BIG EAST) in a Saturday afternoon matchup at Multi-Sport Field at 1 p.m. The game will be televised live on CBS Sports Network and the winner will earn the fourth seed in the BIG EAST Tournament.
On Wednesday, Georgetown fell to the No. 5/5 University of Maryland, 19-10, at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. The Hoyas tied the Terps in the second half, 7-7, but struggled in the first to drop the decision. Junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) led the way with three goals, while sophomore midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) and senior midfielder Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) both added two. Georgetown had more ground balls, 11-8, and forced 13 UMD turnovers but had just eight draw controls to Maryland's 23.
Thomas and freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) are currently leading the team in scoring with 44 and 36 points, respectively. Junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) are third and fourth with 34 and 31 points on the year.
Senior defender Kelly Barnes (St. David's, Pa./Radnor) has 37 ground balls and freshman defender Megan Marinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) leads the squad with 23 caused turnovers. Bozel has notched 36 draw controls. Sophomore goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) has tallied a squad-best 91 saves.
The Scarlet Knights come to the nation's capital after dropping their upset bid at No. 14 Loyola, 15-11, last weekend. Senior midfielder Ali Steinberg notched four points on three goals and one assist in the loss, while sophomore midfielder Lauren Sbrilli recorded her seventh hat trick of the season.
On the season, junior midfielder Stephanie Anderson paces RU with 39 goals. In the cage, junior Lily Kalata owns a 9.80 goals against average with 105 saves for a .438 save percentage. The goalkeeper ranks second in the BIG EAST in GAA, as well as fourth in saves, save percentage and ground balls.
Georgetown is 18-3 all-time against Rutgers with a mark of 9-1 at home. The Hoyas have won the last 12 meetings including a 9-8 victory a season ago in New Jersey. Jackson, Thomas and then-freshman Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) scored two goals each in the win.
The opening draw is scheduled for 1 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field. The game will be televised live on CBS Sports Network with Todd Harris and GU alum Sheehan Stanwick Burch calling the action. Live stats will also be available at www.GUHoyas.com. Prior to game time, there will be a short ceremony honoring the Class of 2012.
