CINCINNATI – Julie Morrissey (Abington, Mass./Tabor Academy) scored her second goal in as many matches but the University of Cincinnati (7-6-1, 1-5 BIG EAST) lost, 3-1, to visiting Georgetown University (10-4, 4-2 BIG EAST) in a BIG EAST Conference match on Friday evening at Gettler Stadium.
Cincinnati was solid defensively to start the first half. Ashley Daniels (Cincinnati, Ohio/Indian Hill) made an amazing savein the eighth minute, jumping for the ball and holding it outside the goal line, despite her body being in the goal.

Morrissey dribbled into the box and shot past GU’s Jackie DesJardin in the 13th minute for the first goal of the match.
Georgetown turned up the offensive pressure late in the first half and connected on its first goal in the 42nd minute. Ingrid Wells tapped a pass to Caitlin Durkee who lined up a shot a fired from 23-yards away, hitting the top right corner of the goal.
Both teams had nine shots in the first half while Georgetown took five corner kicks.
The Hoyas came out a different team in the second half, taking 12 shots to UC’s two. Wells scored on a goal from AmySpeck in the 52nd minute and five minutes later, Camille Trujillo found the back of the net from Kailey Blain.
