Oct. 13, 2013
WASHINGTON - No. 6 Georgetown surrendered two first half goals and No. 18 Marquette added two more in the second half en route to a 4-0 loss on Sunday afternoon at the Valley Fields in Milwaukee, Wis.
The loss ends a 13-game unbeaten streak to start the season as the Hoyas fall to 11-1-2 overall and 3-1-1 in the BIG EAST Conference, while Marquette improves to 12-3-0 and 5-0-0 in the league.
"You tip your hat to Marquette, they were clearly the better team today," Georgetown Head Coach Dave Nolan said. "It was one of those games where they scored at times when we felt we had a chance to get back into it. I'm not disappointed with our effort, but they showed why they they are atop the league right now."
Taylor Madigan put MU on the board first after she took a pass from Vanessa Legault-Cordisco and Maegan Kelly from the right side and found the back of the net, putting the Golden Eagles in front, 1-0, in the 11th minute.
The Hoyas had chances to tie the game in the interim, but a shot from junior midfielder Daphne Corboz (Green Brook, N.J./Watchung Hills) went wide and one from senior forward Kaitlin Brenn (Branchburg, N.J./Somerville) was saved.
Ashley Handwork ran up the middle of the field after a pass from sophomore Jacie Jermier and shot past the junior goalkeeper Emma Newins (Glen Allen, Va./Deep Run) from the 18-yard box, which extended Marquette's lead to 2-0 in the 37th minute.
The Golden Eagles' 2-0 lead held throughout halftime as MU held a slight 6-4 edge on shots.
Looking to cut the lead in half as the second half started, Georgetown could not get going and Marquette added a goal to push the lead to 3-0. Madigan sent a pass to Kelly from the right side and the shot sailed to the far post for a 3-0 lead in the 50th minute of play.
In the 56th minute senior Cara Jacobson split defenders and ran down the middle with a shot to the far post, which gave the Golden Eagles a 4-0 advantage. It was her third this season and came unassisted.
Georgetown returns home on Thursday, Oct. 17, hosting BIG EAST rival St. John's. Kickoff at Shaw Field is slated for 3 p.m.
