  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – Eighth-ranked Georgetown defeated the Rutgers women’s lacrosse team, 15-10, Saturday afternoon at the Rutgers Stadium Complex in Piscataway, NJ. The loss snaps the Scarlet Knights’ three-game winning streak. RU falls to 3-3 on the season and 1-1 in the BIG EAST, while Georgetown moves to 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the league.

    Rutgers jumped out to an early 2-0 lead on the Hoyas with a free-position goal by sophomore Katie Batiuk (Jackson, NJ) in the first minute of the contest and an unassisted score by sophomore Sarah Soden (Monroe Twp., NJ) nine minutes into the game. The Scarlet Knights held Georgetown scores for the first 10:34 of the game.

    GU’s Catherine Elbe took a pass from Paige Andrews to put the Hoyas on the board with 19.26 remaining in the first half. The score opened a five-goal run for the Hoyas to put them up 5-2 midway through the first half. Georgetown’s leading scorer, Coco Stanwick scored three goals, while Lauryn Bernier scored her lone goal of the afternoon during the run.

    Batiuk sandwiched a pair of unassisted goals around a Stanwick free-position score, making it 6-4 in favor of the Hoyas. Georgetown scored the final three goals of the first half and the first four goals of the second half to build a 13-4 lead eight minutes into the second half.

    However, Rutgers stormed right back with four consecutive goals. Senior Lindsay Rising (Malvern, PA) scored an unassisted goal with 20:45 to play, then, five minutes later, assisted junior Kathleen Holley’s (Pottstown, PA) goal. Four minutes past before Batiuk found an open Soden in front of the net and Soden put home the second of her three goals on the afternoon. A minute later, Batiuk round out her four-goal afternoon with her final score to pull Rutgers within five goals (13-8) with just under 15 minutes remaining in the contest.

    Saturday marked the third-straight game Batiuk scored four goals. She leads the Rutgers offense with 19 goals and five assists this season. Batiuk has scored at least one goal in every game this season and has multiple goals in five of RU’s six games in 2005.

    The Scarlet Knight defense contributed to Rutgers’ comeback, holding Georgetown scoreless for more than 14 minutes. Senior defender Andrea Leininger (Bridgewater, NJ) finished the game with three ground balls and a caused turnover.

    Georgetown’s Lucy Poole ended the Hoya’s scoring drought with an unassisted goal with 8:21 to play, but Rutgers immediately responded with a Soden goal just 12 seconds later.

    GU’s Hollis Pica scored with 5:36 remaining to make it 15-9 in favor of the Hoyas.

    Holley scored her second goal of the game for RU off an assist from freshman Kate Shomo (Medford Lakes, NJ) with 3:39 to play, but the Scarlet Knights wouldn’t get any closer, dropping the 15-10 decision to the Hoyas.

    Georgetown outshot Rutgers, 39-29, while each team had 10 ground balls. Rutgers senior goalie Lyndsey Feldman (Ft. Myers, FL) continued her streak of six double-figure saves with 13 against the Hoyas, playing the entire game. Sarah Robinson and Maggie Koch split time in goal for Georgetown with Robinson logging the bulk of the minutes. Robinson made 12 stops and allowed nine goals in 54:24 of action, while Koch recorded two saves, allowing one goal in the final 5:36 of the contest.

    Rutgers will wrap up its three-game homestand on Monday, welcoming Old Dominion to Piscataway for a 3 p.m. match. The game will be played at either the Rutgers Stadium Complex or Yurcak Soccer/Lacrosse Stadium depending on the weather. As soon as a venue is determined, it will be announced on www.scarletknights.com
