GW Lacrosse Downed by Drexel, 10-3, in Home Opener
Colonials Continue Five-Game Homestand Against Denver on Friday
Feb. 16, 2013
The Dragons (1-0) held a 4-2 advantage at halftime and used a six-goal second half to defeat the Colonials (1-1), who could only find the back of the net once after the break. Junior Jordy Bathras, senior Nicole Lacey and sophomore Allie Rash each tallied a goal for GW, and senior goalkeeper Jess Hicks matched her career-high with 10 stops between the pipes. Sophomore Jamie Bumgardner dished out two assists for the Colonials.
GW's defensive pressure proved effective, as the Buff and Blue caused 15 of Drexel's 19 turnovers, including a game-high four apiece from Rash and classmate Jenn Seitz. The Colonials' offense, however, struggled to connect as just seven of their 19 shots were on target.
Drexel scored first on a free-position shot 6:53 into the contest. GW evened the score at the 11:33 mark when Bumgardner found an open Bathras in the center of the circle, but the two clubs went on a scoring drought for next 15 minutes of play. The Dragons scored back-to-back goals over a 1:17 span to take a 3-1 lead with 2:10 left in the first half and never surrendered the lead from there out. Lacey cut the Colonials' deficit to 3-2 with a free-position goal at 29:14, but Drexel countered with a free-position goal of its own with 27 seconds remaining in the period and took the 4-2 advantage into the break.
The Dragons extended their lead with a goal 3:57 into the second, and GW answered when Bumgardner connected with Rash less than three minutes later for the Colonials' final score of the contest. Drexel then tallied the final five goals of the game for the 10-3 win.
Drexel's Kelli Joran and Alyse Maiden each scored a game-high three goals, and Maiden also added two assists.
GW continues its five-game homestand when the squad welcomes Denver on Friday, Feb. 22, for a 3:30 p.m. matchup. Fans can watch action live on RaiseHigh.tv or follow live stats via Gametracker.
