Chambers, Elbe and Stanwick Give Fried Proper Welcome
WASHINGTON, DC. – The Georgetown University women’s lacrosse team opened the 2005 season with an 18-3 win over Mount St. Mary’s on Wednesday, March 2, on Kehoe Field. Despite the extremely cold and windy conditions, three Hoyas scored hat tricks to secure the first career victory for first year Head Coach Ricky Fried.
Seniors Ali Chambers (Valley Cottage, N.Y./Nyack) and Catherine Elbe (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City), and sophomore Coco Stanwick (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) led the Hoyas with three goals apiece. Stanwick also tallied three assists on the afternoon, while Chambers and Elbe posted one each. Senior Erin LaMotte and juniors Kirby Day and Lauren Reymann scored the Mount’s three goals.
Georgetown reeled off four-straight goals, including two by Chambers, within the first 15-1/2 minutes of the first period. Reymann finally responded for Mount St. Mary’s at 21:08, but the Hoyas controlled the draw and the ball for the rest of the half. Five different Georgetown players scored goals to close out the first half 9-1. Lauryn Bernier (Sr., Strafford, Pa./Conestoga), Stanwick, Paige Andrews (Jr., Newton Square, Pa./Archbishop Carroll), Brittany Baschuk (Jr., Chevy Chase, Md./Stone Ridge) and Elbe each scored a goal during the run.
The second stanza opened much like the first, with Stanwick, Lauren Redler (Sr., Fairfield, Conn./Choate Rosemary Hall) and Chambers finding the back of the net before 10 minutes had ticked off the clock. Day posted Mount St. Mary’s second goal of the day to make the score 12-2 with 11:42 left. Once again, the Hoyas’ offensive took over, with Stanwick, Elbe, Pica and Baschuk stepping up with tallies. LaMotte put the Mount’s last goal of the game on the board 57:42 into the contest, but Elbe notched her third score just 10 seconds later to give the Hoyas a 17-3 advantage. Sophomore midfielder Sara Zorzi (Timonium, Md./Roland Park Country School) closed out the game with just two seconds left on the clock to give Georgetown the 18-3 victory.
All three Hoya goalkeepers saw time in the cage on the afternoon. Senior Sarah Robinson (Great Falls, Va./St. Mark’s School) started for GU and was credited with two saves while allowing one goal. Sophomores Maggie Koch (Philadelphia, Pa./Springside School) and Margaret Farland (Chapel Hill, N.C./St. Andrew’s School) also saw playing time, with each giving up one goal apiece. The Hoyas kept Mount St. Mary’s keeper, Naomi Campano Radio busy. Radio made 17 saves, but allowed all 18 of GU’s goals.
