Tarzian's goal leads No. 16 Georgetown past No. 6 Duke

WASHINGTON -- Georgetown (3-1) upset No. 6 Duke (3-3) 11-10 on Wednesday afternoon at Koskinen Stadium. Junior attacker Caroline Tarzian scored the game winner with five seconds remaining to improve the Blue & Gray to 3-1 on the season.

“The biggest thing for us is that they dominated draw controls and we were able to find other ways to win instead of simply outscoring people which we’ve done in previous games,” Georgetown head coach Ricky Fried said.  “A game like this helps us get better and, with our schedule, it helps us stay focused which will make a difference down the road.”

Georgetown had four different players hit two goals apiece for balanced scoring. The Hoyas were outshot and had fewer draw controls, however the defense forced 11 Blue Devil turnovers which made the difference. 

Senior goalkeeper Barb Black had two saves in the cage.
