Lacrosse Falls to Monmouth, 14-8
Colonials to face another road test next Saturday
WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J. -- After starting the 2018 season with a perfect 2-0 record, the George Washington lacrosse team saw its streak snapped on Saturday afternoon, falling to Monmouth, 14-8, at Kessler Stadium.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Hawks established a 6-0 lead at the start of the game, striking first at the 24:02 mark and going on an early run. The Colonials were able to stop Monmouth's surge midway through the first half with a goal from senior co-captain Brooke Sands off of a free position shot. Fellow senior Camaryn Kerns scored four minutes later to reduce the Hawks' lead to four, but Monmouth responded with a 3-0 run to close the first half.
After the break, GW was first to find the back of the net, with Kerns netting her second goal of the game and seventh of the season. Monmouth matched Kern's goal to increase its score to 10, but Jocelyn Donohue gave the Colonials another tally at the 23:03 mark to bring the squad up to four and kick start a 4-0 run. Monmouth continued to apply the offensive pressure, leading 14-7 with 3:55 to play. Sands scored once more, but it wasn't enough as the Colonials fell 14-8.
LOOK AHEAD: GW will head back out on the road next Saturday to play Robert Morris at 11:30 a.m.
