WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The Pitt women's soccer team dropped a 4-2 decision to host Georgetown Sunday afternoon. The Panthers fall to 6-9-1 overall and 1-7-1 in Big East play, while the Hoyas improve to 11-5-0 overall and 4-4-0 in the Big East.
Within the first nine minutes of play, the Hoyas were able to score twice on the Panthers. In the fourth minute, Sara Jordan scored with a shot into the right corner of the net, and in the eighth minute, Stephanie Zare added another to put Georgetown up 2-0 over the Panthers.
Georgetown's Ingrid Wells assisted on both goals, and added to the Hoya's lead in the 26th minute with a goal of her own, giving Georgetown a 3-0 advantage.
The Panthers responded quickly in the 30th minute when freshman Liz Carroll (Alexandria, Va./Bishop O'Connell) beat Georgetown's goalkeeper with a shot just inside the post, moving the score to 3-1. Carroll has recorded three goals on the season.
In the 63rd minute, Carroll passed the ball to Jennifer Kritch (Northville, Mich./Northville), who flicked a shot past the Hoyas' goalkeeper and into the left corner of the net. The goal is Kritch's fourth goal of the season, giving her 10 career goals.
Daryn Towle scored Georgetown's final goal after beating Pitt's goalkeeper Morie Kephart (State College, Pa./State College) on the left side of the net. Kephart recorded four saves against the Hoyas.
The Panthers will return home this weekend for their last two regular season games. Pitt plays Marquette on Friday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. at Founders Field and South Florida on Sunday, Oct. 28, for Senior Recognition.
