Stanford, Calif. - No. 17 Stanford women's lacrosse (4-1, 2-0 MPLL) was handed its first defeat of the 2003 season by third-ranked Georgetown (3-0, 1-0 Big East) this afternoon in the 2nd Annual East/West Challenge at Maloney Field. The Hoyas took an early lead and despite a strong effort by the Cardinal on both ends of the field and a 20-save performance by junior Christina Saikus, Georgetown earned the 15-7 win.

The Hoyas' Hilary Polk-Williams tabbed the first goal of the day 18 seconds into the game, but the quick score did not deter the Cardinal. Stanford posted its first goal just under the 11 minute mark as sophomore Kelsey Twist posted her 12th goal of the season. The Hoyas notched a quick score 30 seconds later, but then both teams were unable to find the net for the next ten minutes.

Georgetown broke the scoring drought with three goals at the end of the first half, but with less than 20 seconds to go, Stanford's Abbi Hills and Kim Cahill each tacked on a goal to bring the halftime margin to 7-3.

Georgetown opened the second half with four unanswered goals, but sophomore Nina Pantano scored two consecutive goals to keep Stanford in striking distance. Hills added Stanford's last two goals but the Hoyas pulled away with another four goals in the last ten minutes to earn the 15-7 victory.

Stanford will take a two-week break before its next game, when the Cardinal host Brown, Harvard, Duke and Maryland-Baltimore County during its spring break. Brown will be the first opponent to visit The Farm; game time is set for 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 23rd.
