The Georgetown men’s lacrosse team (2-2, 0-0 Big East) dropped a tough decision in overtime to Hofstra (2-2, 0-0 CAA) on Saturday, 9-8.
After striking first on a goal by freshman midfielder Devon Lewis, the Hoyas conceded six straight goals to the Pride to fall behind 6-1 with 10:47 left in the second quarter. Georgetown managed to chip away at the Hofstra lead a little before the half, and went into the break down 6-3. The Blue and Gray tacked on two more goals in the third quarter to head into the fourth down 7-5, and proceeded to score the next three goals of the game, taking an 8-7 lead with 7:40 left in the game. Unfortunately, the lead wouldn’t hold, as a goal from Hofstra’s Mike Malave tied the game with just over one minute remaining. The two teams battled it out in overtime until Torin Varn netted the winner on a fast break for the Pride.
Georgetown got two goals apiece from junior attackers Bo Stafford and Reilly O’Connor, along with two from Lewis, to lead its scoring attack. Freshman attacker Peter Conley and redshirt senior defender Tyler Knarr each contributed a goal as well.
Up next for Georgetown is a match-up against Harvard at home on Saturday, March 8th.
