Box Score

EASTON, Pa. - Lafayette gave No. 19 Georgetown all it could handle and more for the majority of Saturday's non-conference game before falling 8-5 inside Fisher Stadium.

Sophomore goalkeeper Jake Hyatt totaled a career-high 15 saves, including four in a scoreless first 15 minutes of play. Freshman Brian Bock paced the Leopard attack, finding the back of the cage four times on the afternoon.

A scoreless first quarter was followed by the two squads combining for six goals in the second period. The Hoyas notched the game's first goal at the 13:51 mark of the second period.

Two more tallies within the next minute gave Georgetown a 3-0 advantage with 12:48 remaining until halftime.

However, the Leopards responded quickly. A Colin Serling goal with 9:29 left got Lafayette on the board before back-to-back tallies from Bock leveled the score a 3-3 with 4:24 before the intermission.

The two teams traded possessions for the remainder of the first half, with neither capitalizing and settled for a 3-3 score at halftime.

The third quarter proved to be the decisive portion of the game, with Georgetown outscoring Lafayette 4-0 in the 15-minute frame, the last coming with 29 seconds left in the quarter.

Again, the Leopards responded at the start of the fourth quarter, with two more goals from Bock to pull Lafayette back within two (7-5). Bock teamed up with classmate Sonny Round and then Serling with 9:57 left in regulation.

The goal turned out to be the final for Lafayette on the day, as the Hoyas found one more insurance goal to ensure its 8-5 win.

Hyatt also added four groundballs to his 15 saves. Each team won seven of the game's 14 face-offs.

The Leopards will now prepare for a Tuesday midweek game in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., taking on Marist at 7 p.m.
