Drexel Downs GW Lacrosse, 15-10, with Big Second Half
Feb. 19, 2012
PHILADELPHIA - Senior Sarah Phillips notched her second hat trick in as many games, but Drexel outscored George Washington 10-2 in the second half and defeated the Colonials, 15-10, on Sunday afternoon at Vidas Field.
The Dragons scored the first two goals of the game and led 4-2 after 7:14 of play, but GW closed the first half with a 6-1 run to take an 8-5 lead at intermission. Phillips and senior Megan Seidman each tallied twice during the spurt.
But the second half was all Drexel, as Amanda Norcini found the back of the net less than two minutes after the draw, the first of six straight goals for the Dragons.
Junior Nicole Lacey briefly interrupted Drexel's run with her second goal of the game at the 13:27 mark, but the Dragons responded with four more in a row before Phillips tallied the final goal of the contest with 1:05 remaining.
Lacey matched her own program single-game record with 10 draw controls, as the Colonials won 17 of 27 draws in the game, including 12 of 14 in the first half.
Phillips led GW with four points on three goals and an assist, while Norcini and Alyse Maiden each scored four goals to lead Drexel.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday, when they host Long Island at 1 p.m. at Mount Vernon Field.
