Georgetown vaults in polls after big wins

  Georgetown handed Marquette its first loss of the season, winning 10-9.

Are the Hoyas back among lacrosse’s elite? Georgetown’s huge week vaulted it from unranked to No. 14 in this week’s Inside Lacrosse poll and into recognition.

Georgetown knocked off then-No. 14 Loyola Maryland and then-No. 9 Marquette in back-to-back contests. 

The Hoyas’ 13-12 win against Loyola Maryland was their first since 2007 and first against a ranked opponent since 2013. A five-goal run in the second half propelled Georgetown to victory. Senior attack Bo Stafford, the Big East Offensive Player of the Week, scored four goals and assisted two.

Marquette was one of three undefeated teams remaining in Division I men’s lacrosse until their 10-9 loss to Georgetown. The Hoyas jumped to an 8-2 halftime lead that was tied at 9-9 until freshman midfielder Craig Berge scored on extra-man opportunity with 3:45 to play.

Georgetown (6-3) visits No. 5 Denver (6-2) Saturday, March 28.

Honorable Mentions:

No. 1 Syracuse (7-0)

Kevin Rice and Dylan Donahue each had seven points as the Orange dominated then-No. 4 Duke 19-7 on Sunday.  The nation’s top-ranked team remains undefeated another week, at least until Saturday when they meet No. 2 Notre Dame.

No. 2 Notre Dame (5-1)

The Fighting Irish posted just their second shutout in team history, a 9-0 decision against No. 15 Ohio State. Shane Doss and Conor Kelly combined for 13 saves.

No. 10 Princeton (6-1)

Georgetown wasn’t the only team collecting a pair of one-goal wins last week. The Tigers outlasted Rutgers 12-11 and Yale 11-10 behind 19 combined points from Mike MacDonald and Kip Orban.
