  • PISCATAWAY, NJ – The Rutgers women’s lacrosse team (5-2, 0-1 BIG EAST) kept the score close as No. 4 Georgetown scored a late goal to earn the BIG EAST victory, 6-5, on Yurcak Field Sunday, March 30.

    The Hoyas opened the scoring with a goal from Allison Chambers, who received the ball from Sarah Oliphant. Rutgers tied the score late in the first half when Jessica Mosey (Skaneateles, NY) scored off a pass from Cali Wojdyla (Liverpool, NY). With 2:15 remaining in the opening half, Chambers gave the Hoyas the lead with a free-position goal, making the score 2-1 in favor of Georgetown at the half.

    GU’s Anouk Peters extended the Hoyas’ lead the two, scoring a goal 30 seconds into the second half. RU’s Wojdyla then scored three consecutive goals to give the Knights their only lead of the afternoon, 4-3. Gloria Lozano tied the score for Georgetown (4-4) with a free-position goal, followed by Peters’ second goal of the game to put the Hoyas ahead, 5-4. Junior Maggie Bopp (Lindenhurst, NY) tied the score, 5-5, when she scored after a shot by senior Claire Grooms (Camillus, NY) ricocheted off of GU goalie Sarah Robinson. With less than three minutes to play, Wick Stanwick scored the final goal of the afternoon as the Hoyas won the BIG EAST match, 6-5.

    Rutgers goalie, sophomore Lyndsey Feldman (Ft. Myers, FL) made nine saves in the cage, while Robinson made seven for Georgetown. Showing the teams were evenly matched, the Hoyas only outshot RU by one, 21-20, while barely edging the Scarlet Knights in draws (7-6) and caused turnovers (11-10).

    Rutgers will head out on the road, facing Penn on Tuesday, April 1, at 7 p.m., and Syracuse on Saturday, April 5, at 4 p.m. The Scarlet Knights will then host a six-game homestand, beginning on Wednesday, April 9, with Yale at 3 p.m.
