No. 2 Syracuse Doubles Up No. 14 Georgetown for 10th Win

The Hoyas were in a hole early as the Orange jumped out to a 3-0 lead to start the contest. The Blue & Gray began climbing back at 23:33 as sophomore attacker Maggie Brown (Woodside, Calif./Menlo School) found the back of the cage to make it 3-1.

A free position goal and another in front of the net gave Syracuse the four-goal advantage, but Georgetown continued to battle as senior attacker Erin Lovett (Wantagh, N.Y./Kellenberg Memorial) scored at 20:10. However, the Orange quickly scored two off draw controls to make it 7-2.

A fast break gave freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) an opportunity to score taking the free position pass from freshman defender Megan Marinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) who set up the play on the break.

Cuse once again came back, but the Hoyas held the ball on the ensuing possession for just the right shot until junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) found the back of the net to make it 8-4.

Syracuse managed a 3-0 run, but off of the draw, junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) sprinted down for the goal. The Orange scored three more as a goal from sophomore midfielder Kelyn Freedman (Newtown Square, Pa./Radnor) wasn't enough to make it 14-6 at the break.

Georgetown opened the second half on a good note as Lovett scored her second of the game, but the Orange came right back on the other end adding three goals.

Thomas ended the run at 17:05 sliding the ball under the keeper's stick to make it 17-8, however, a four-goal run by Syracuse put the game out of reach.

Lovett tallied a goal at 7:26, junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) added one off of the free position and Bozel had one more on the day, but it was not enough making the final 22-11.

Lovett, Tarzian and Bozel all led the Hoyas with three points each. Georgetown was outshot, 32-30, but had 21 draw controls to Syracuse's 14 including 12 in the second half. The difference came in the net as the Orange tallied 14 saves to GU's eight.

The Orange continued a nine-game win streak as Michelle Tumolo led the way with five goals and three assists for eight points.

The Hoyas will be back in action on Saturday hosting the No. 8/7 University of Notre Dame Fighting Irish at 2:30 p.m., at Multi-Sport Field. The game will be televised live on CBS Sports Network and live stats as well as an audio-only broadcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
