Georgetown (0-0-2) enters the weekend off a pair of ties at the Navy Tournament in Annapolis, Md.

Senior Chrissy Skogen (San Marino, Calif./San Marino) scored the lone goal against the Wildcats, moving her into a tie for ninth place in Georgetown history with 41 points. Junior Karen Waskewich (Laytonsville, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) assisted all three Hoya goals this weekend.
George Mason has won both contests against the Hoyas, a 2-1 decision in 2003 and a 3-1 score in 2004. Duquesne and Georgetown will meet for the first time. The Hoyas are 8-5 all-time in their home opener.
