PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women's soccer team was edged by ninth-ranked Georgetown, 2-1, in an afternoon match-up on Glay Field in Providence, R.I. The Friars move to 4-6-3 (1-3-0 BIG EAST).
The first 45 minutes of play were scoreless. Providence and Georgetown each witnessed one of their shots deflect off of its opponents crossbar. The game headed into the half even at 0-0.
Georgetown struck in the 46th minute when Kailey Blain finished a strike from the top of the 18 yard box to give the Hoyas a 1-0 lead. Georgetown increased its lead to 2-0 in the 66th minute when Daphne Corboz and Sarah Adams connected on a give-and-go in the Friars' box. Corboz found the back of the net for the 2-0 advantage.
Providence answered in the 71st minute when sophomore Catherine Zimmerman (Madison, N.J.) was fouled in Georgetown's box. Zimmerman was awarded a penalty shot which she buried to bring the Friars within one, 2-1. The Friars kept the offensive pressure on but that was as close as they would get.
