Box Score

WASHINGTON - Georgetown's attempt at a late comeback fell just short Friday evening, falling to Florida International 4-3 in the second game of the FIU Tournament in Miami, Fla. for a 0-2 start on the season.

FIU started the scoring in the first inning with a 3-run homerun by Brie Rojas and tacked on an additional unearned run in the second after a throwing error to third base by Georgetown pitcher Megan Hyson (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake). Hyson would however make up for that run later in the game and would not allow any more runs to the Golden Panthers.

The Hoyas would cut into the 4-run lead by loading the bases in the fifth inning. After getting on base with a single Samantha Giovanniello (Floral Park, N.Y./Floral Park Memorial) scored Georgetown's first run of the game on wild pitch. Later in the inning Hyson would avenge her unearned run in the second inning with a fielder's choice groundout to second base, driving in Alexandria Anttila (Antioch, Ill./Antioch Community) and bringing the deficit to two. Hyson also pitched five innings, allowing three earned runs and striking out one.

The bases would be loaded once again for Georgetown just one inning later. Antilla would bring in pinch runner Cristina Fletcher (White Plains, N.Y./The Ursuline School) after getting hit by a pitch but that would be the last run of the day for the Hoyas, leaving the score at 4-3.

Georgetown starts the second day of the FIU Tournament on Saturday, Feb. 9 as they take on Kansas at 11 a.m. with an opponent to-be-determined on Sunday.
