Colonial of the Week - Nicole Lacey
Freshman Scores Game-Winner to Keep Colonials in Playoff Contention
April 12, 2010
Name: Nicole Lacey
Lacey's second goal of the game with 1:49 left in triple overtime not only gave GW a 7-6 victory at La Salle, but also kept the Colonials in contention for an A-10 Championship berth. She also won eight draws against the Explorers, the second time in three games she's been a draw shy of the program's single-game record of nine. Lacey added two goals and six draws in an 11-9 victory over Saint Joseph's in GW's home finale Friday. For the week, Lacey totaled four goals on eight attempts, 14 draws and two ground balls as the Colonials snapped a seven-game losing skid with back-to-back victories. Lacey leads GW and ranks second in the A-10 with 40 draws and paces the team's rookie class with 10 goals and 12 points. Her 40 draws are second only to Katie Lilly's record of 50 set in 2009.
