Lousy Jerk Ranked Team: #8 Georgetown 13, Marquette 7

Seems like a bummer, but watch me drag some upside out of this.

Emily Donovan had her first career two goal game against the Hoyas on Saturday.

Good news: Marquette scored first, taking a 1-0 lead when Claire Costanza found Emily Donovan for Donovan's sixth goal of the season.

Bad news: Marquette couldn't stop Georgetown from going on runs. The Hoyas scored the next three before Elizabeth Goslee broke the streak with her first goal of the year, and then Georgetown scored the next four goals before Emma Kern tossed in her third goal of the year to make it 7-3 at intermission.

Good news: Marquette scored more goals in the second half than they did in the first half, going against the trend of Georgetown allowing fewer goals in the second half.

Bad news: Marquette allowed more goals in the second half than they scored. The Golden Eagles were able to cut the lead back down to 4 goals after Donovan and Nicole Gleason combined for Marquette's only goal streak of the game, but at that point, it was 10-6 with just 10 minutes remaining.

Good news: Marquette scored seven goals on just 10 shots. Not shots on goal, because they had seven goals and GU goalie Barb Black had just two saves. They had 10 total shots, nine of them found the net area, and seven of them went in. Next step: getting more shots off.

Good news: Marquette goalie Sarah Priem recorded double digit saves for the third time in the last four games, hitting 10 exactly in this one. Georgetown got off 35 shots in the game, but only 23 of them found the net area. Next step: denying shots.

Up Next: #20 Loyola (MD) on Sunday at noon. The Greyhounds pulled their record on the season to 6-6 after defeating #6 Notre Dame in sudden victory overtime yesterday.
