Georgetown improves to 2-0

If the results of its first two games are an indication, it appears as if Yale will face a much improved Georgetown team in the Sept. 18 season opener.

Georgetown improved to 2-0 by rallying from a 14-point deficit for a 28-24 win over Lafayette on Saturday.

Former Hillhouse stars Keerome Lawrence and Jeremy Moore played major roles in the victory. Lawrence caught six passes for 54 yards including a 6-yard touchdowns while Moore had nine tackles for the Hoyas, who won despite being outgained 509-265 and only having the ball for 19:47 in the game.

The Hoyas, who lost to Lafayette 28-3 in 2009 to head into Yale with an 0-2 record, opened the 2010 season with a 20-10 victory over Davidson to snap a 12-game losing streak.

Georgetown will travel to the Yale Bowl for a noon game on Sept. 18. Besides Lawrence and Moore, Georgetown has another connection to the New Haven area as former University of New Haven football coach Dave Patenaude was named the Hoyas' offensive coordinator in April. Patenaude was the head coach of the Chargers in 2002 and 2003 before the program folded (only to be restarted last season). He had three-year stints at Holy Cross and Hofstra before coming to Georgetown.
