No. 20 Georgetown Knocks off No. 13 Syracuse

The Orange opened the second half with two consecutive goals to take its largest lead of the game at 8-5 with 25:34 to play. Holden netted the first goal off a pass from Tumolo as she was cutting to the goal. Webster followed that goal with her second of the day on a hard shot on a pass from Rodriguez. That would be Syracuse's final goal of the day as Georgetown recorded seven consecutive goals for the 12-8 final.

Murray led the Orange with four points on two goals and two assists, while Holden had two goals. Tumolo dished out two assists, giving her 60 in her career. With her next assist, Tumolo will move into a tie for sixth place on SU's all-time leader list with Jill DePetris (2004-07). Webster added a pair of goals, while Rodriguez and Ladouceur each finished with a goal and an assist. Dina Jackson led Georgetown with five points on three goals and two assists.

The Hoyas outshot the Orange, 26-17, and picked up 18 ground balls to five for SU. The Orange won 12 of 21 draw controls. Hogan finished with nine saves, while Black had five for Georgetown.

The Orange returns to the Carrier Dome for a pair of games next week. Syracuse hosts Louisville on Thursday, Apr. 16 at 5:00 p.m. and Cincinnati on Saturday, April 23 at noon. Admission is free of charge.
