WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team dropped its fifth straight game with a 14-4 loss at sixth-ranked Georgetown on Wednesday at Kehoe Field. Junior goalkeeper Tara Durkin had 19 saves, while freshmen Angela Dixon came off the bench to score two goals and assist on another for the Irish, who fall to 3-5 with the loss. Junior All-American Sheehan Stanwick lead the Hoyas with four goals. Notre Dame returns to action with a pair of road games at Connecticut and Boston College this weekend.

Georgetown built a 5-0 lead before Dixon netted her first goal at 1:19 on a transition feed from freshman Danielle Shearer. Durkin helped hold Georgetown to just five goals at halftime 10 saves, including seven in the first 14 minutes when the Hoyas led 1-0.

The Hoyas scored four goals in the first 6:04 of the second half to take a 9-1 lead. Sophomore Alissa Moser and Dixon scored back-to-back goals in 21 seconds to pull the Irish within 9-3. The Hoyas then scored five consecutive goals to lead 14-3 with 1:40 left in the game. Junior Kathryn Perrella closed out the scoring with a goal with 17 second left for the 14-4 final score.

The 14 goals are the most the Irish have allowed this season, while the four-goal output marks the fifth consecutive game Notre Dame has been held to under 10 goals. Georgetown held a 13-7 advantage in draw controls and 37-12 in total shots.
