The Georgetown field hockey team (2-17, 0-6 Big East) lost, 7-0, to No. 11 Lafayette on Saturday to end what’s turned out to be a largely forgettable season.
On a chilly afternoon, the Blue and Gray put up a decent fight in the second half after having been completely dominated in the first. Senior goalkeeper Briana Pereira finished the game with 14 saves, while senior midfielders Caitlin Hickey and Katy Wingo attempted two shots apiece for the Hoyas.
The Leopards came into the game shooting and, remarkably, recorded 20 shots in the first half while the Hoyas could not get off a single one. Thanks in part to Pereira’s goalkeeping, Lafayette could not score until the game’s 15th minute. However, the floodgates quickly opened after that, as goals from Deanna Dicroce, Kristin Heaney and Jenna Seybert allowed the Leopards to take a commanding 3-0 lead into halftime.
In the second half, the Hoyas turned much of the momentum, attempting the same number of shots as Lafayette in the period. This shift was not reflected in the score, though, as the hosts scored four goals in the first 20 minutes of the second half, including two in the 51st minute. Although GU threatened to score in the final minutes, they were ultimately shut out for the fourth time this season.
The loss marked the final game for 10 Georgetown seniors.
