Feb. 23, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington lacrosse team dropped a 17-6 decision to Denver on Friday in non-conference action at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Sophomore Jamie Bumgardner recorded a team-high three points (2 g, 1 a) and sophomore Rachel Mia scored two goals for GW (1-2). Junior Lindsey DiAntonio scored a goal and added an assist and senior Nicole Lacey chipped in one goal.
Denver (2-0) jumped out to a 1-0 lead just 1:19 into action, but Mia answered to knot the score at 7:36. The Pioneers, however, took a 2-1 lead with 17:44 showing on the clock and never looked back as they closed the half with a 9-2 run.
Denver went up 9-1 with just under eight minutes to play in the first half when Lacey found the back of the net on an unassisted shot for the Colonials' second tally of the day. The Pioneers added two more goals to close the half and the squads took an 11-2 score into the break.
Bumgardner tallied a goal 1:28 into the second period to cut the Colonials' deficit to 11-3, but the visitors responded with a 4-0 run over a span of 10:49 to extend the lead to 15-3. The Buff and Blue then tallied back-to-back goals over 5:32 for a 15-5 score. Mia found the back of the net off of a pass from DiAntonio and Bumgardner scored on a free position shot.
The Pioneers responded with two more tallies over the final six minutes of play, and GW scored the final goal of the game when Bumgardner connected with an open DiAntonio with 1:12 showing on the game clock.
Sophomore Mackenzie Jones made two stops between the pipes in 35:44 of work and senior Jess Hicks made one save on the day.
The Colonials return to action when they host local foe George Mason on Wednesday, Feb. 27 for a 3:30 p.m. contest.
