Georgetown scored the first goal of the game less than forty seconds into the contest, and the Hoyas continued scoring from there, taking a 3-0 lead 5:15 into the match.

The Gators trailed 8-4 late in the first half, but a Grace Haus score moved the Gators to within three at half.

With momentum on their side, Florida scored three of the first four goals of the second half to get within one at 9-8. The two teams would take turns scoring until the Gators mounted a 7-0 run to finish the game.

Haus led Florida with four goals in the game while Shannon Kavanagh and Sydney Pirreca added a hat-trick each.

Florida is now 7-3 on the season and 2-0 in Big East play. The Gators have now won 24 straight conference games. The loss puts the Hoyas at 5-3 overall and 1-1 in conference play.
