WASHINGTON, D.C. - Abby Rehfuss scored three goals, but Loyola lost its first BIG EAST Conference game of the season, 16-9, at 10th-ranked Georgetown on Saturday afternoon.
Ashby Kaestner scored five times, and Molly Ford added four goals, to lead the Hoyas (2-0, 1-0).
Ford scored two goals, bookending a Kaestner tally, in the first six minutes of the game to stake Georgetown to a 3-0 lead. Bunny O'Reilly added a goal at the 16:16 mark before Loyola got on the scoreboard at 15:27 on a Gavin score.
The Hoyas then reeled off nine unanswered goals to build a 13-1 advantage with just over 20 minutes remaining in the game.
Rehfuss' first goal of the game broke the run, and Loyola closed the game by scoring eight of the last 11 goals.
"The second half was the better half for us," Head Coach Kerri O'Day said. "They last several minutes were good, but we did not put together 60 minutes today. We started too slow, and we never caught up until it was too late."
The Greyhounds return to non-conference action on Tuesday, February 26, with a 7:30 p.m. game at UMBC.
