A Rainy Day for the Georgetown Women's Soccer Team

Oct. 7, 2005

Box Score

Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown women's soccer team (10-3-1, 3-21 BIG EAST) lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to the Louisville Cardinals on North Kehoe Field as the rain poured down. This was the first loss at home for the Hoyas as well as the first time Georgetown has lost two consecutive games in 2005.

The first half saw a dominant Georgetown squad as they outshot Louisville 11-3 and took four corner kicks to Louisville's zero. The Hoyas were aggressive and shooting but Cardinal goalkeeper Deana Waintraub stopped three Hoya shots in the period for a scoreless first half.

With the rain in the first half, the tempo had decreased considerably. Both teams struggled with ball handling and agility as the rain created difficult footing.

The Cardinals scored quickly in the first half when Jamie Craft shot past GU goalkeeper Jade Higgins (Island Park, N.Y.) to put Louisville (9-4-0, 4-2-0 BE) up 1-0. Georgetown junior forward Chrissy Skogen (San Marino, Calif.) scored the equalizing goal for the Hoyas on a penalty kick at 63:08. This was Skogen's eighth goal of the season. With the score tied, and just over a minute to play, Louisville's Jen Avila scored the game-winning goal after a Cardinal corner kick was bobbled in the goal box.

Georgetown returns to BIG EAST action this Sunday, Oct. 9 when they host the Cincinnati Bearcats at 1 p.m. on North Kehoe Field.
