Rollings' two goals were his first-ever points in a GW uniform.
Seniors Trevor Martin (Chevy Chase, MD/Bethesda-Chevy Chase) and Jon Allen (Dobbs Ferry, NY/Ardsley/University of Rochester) both assisted on three goals while senior Frank Ambrosio (Windermere, FL/Bishop Moore Catholic) assisted on two.
GW took an early 1-0 lead at the 10:59 mark when sophomore Abimbola Pedro (Lagos, Nigeria/ King's College Lagos) scored (2) with an acrobatic bicycle kick from five-yards out.
A minute and a half later the Hawks' Mike McInaw scored (3) to tie the game 1-1 with an assist from sophomore Jim Slover.
