Box Score

WASHINGTON, DC - The Saint Joseph's women's soccer team fell to Georgetown, 5-1, Friday afternoon at North Kehoe Field.

Despite being out shot 11-1 in the opening stanza, the Hawks were able to stay even with the Hoyas thanks to the performance of sophomore goalkeeper Megan Bastianelli. Bastianelli made four of her game-high eight saves to keep SJU even.

Unfortunately for Saint Joseph's, Georgetown's offense began to click in the second half, scoring five-straight goals to open a 5-0 advantage. The Hoyas' Sara Jordan opened the scoring as she dribbled past Bastianlli and beat the Hawks' keeper to put her team up 1-0 at 52:23. Georgetown's Tonie Marie Hudson added the first of her two goals nearly three minutes later, while teammates Ingrid Wells and Caitlin Durkee each added a goal.

Trailing by five, Saint Joseph's continued to fight, and got on the board at 86:53 as sophomore Sarah O'Malley headed in a corner by teammate Ashley Bugnar .

Cutting the deficit to four, there wasn't enough time remaining to cut it any further as Georgetown held on for the win.

For the game, the Hoyas out shot the Hawks 26-3. With the loss, the Hawks fall to 2-3 on the season, while Georgetown improves to 6-1.

Saint Joseph's returns to action next Friday, September 21, at Lehigh. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
