Yale Falls at No. 17 Georgetown

WASHINGTON, D.C. - No. 17 Georgetown broke a 2-2 tie with a 13-goal run, ending with a 16-3 victory over Yale Sunday afternoon at Multi-Sport Field. Freshman attacker Jen DeVito had two goals for the Bulldogs.

Coming off their second win of the season, the Bulldogs fell behind 2-0 but rallied back with a pair of goals from DeVito to tie the score six minutes into the game. But the Hoyas then reeled off 13 in a row, including nine straight to end the first half. Yale (2-8) was hurt by 18 turnovers in the first half, when Georgetown (4-5) had a 15-8 advantage in ground balls.

Freshman Erin McMullan came on to play goal in the second half and made eight saves. Junior attacker Caroline Crow scored Yale's other goal.

Senior defender Fielding Kidd led Yale with four caused turnovers, while senior midfielder Logan Greer added three ground balls and three draw controls.

Yale returns to action next Saturday, hosting Princeton as part of a doubleheader with the Yale men's lacrosse team for the dedication of Reese Stadium.
