Women's Soccer Falls to Furman, 4-3
WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 29, 2000) -- The Georgetown women's soccer team was defeated 4-3 on Tuesday afternoon at Harbin Field by Furman University. The Hoyas fell behind early, but made a comeback and proved they could compete with Furman, ranked 31st in the country and 8th in the Southeast region.
Furman scored first as Lauren Killey's shot was deflected by Emily Main (Allendale, N.J./Northern Highlands) , and then put into the net by Melissa Turner at 16.10. The Paladins scored again at 28.50, this time off a corner kick. The ball was put into play and banged around in front of the goal before Danielle Petro finally knocked it in. The Paladins led 2-0 at halftime.
The Hoyas settled down in the second half, looking more controlled. Karin Ostrander (Atherton, Calif./Menlo Atherton School) scored first for the Hoyas, dribbling past two defenders and beating the goalie for the shot. Alyson Smith (Parsippany, N.J./Morris Catholic) was next to score. Smith's shot from midfield deflected off a Furman defender and went over the keeper for an unexpected goal, tying the game at two.
The next three goals were under a minute apart. At 81.07 the Paladins struck again.
Emily Turgeon scored off an assist from Danielle Petro. Only 32 seconds later, at 81.39, the two reversed roles as Petro scored off an assist from Turgeon. Finally, at 82.01, the Hoyas scored the final goal of the game. Karin Ostrander scored her second goal of the afternoon by passing two defenders and taking a shot with her left foot, which was beautifully placed in the upper-left corner of the goal. The Georgetown women's soccer team will be in action again as they host William & Mary at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday at Harbin Field.
