Bumgardner Sets GW Lacrosse Scoring Records in 21-10 Win Over Liberty
Junior Attacker Nets Six Goals and Dishes Out Six Assists for 12-Point Game
Feb. 26, 2014
WASHINGTON – Junior Jamie Bumgardner broke George Washington lacrosse’s single-game assists and points records as she helped the Colonials to a convincing 21-10 win over Liberty at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus on Wednesday afternoon.
Bumgardner recorded 12 points on six goals and six assists to surpass the previous single-game records of five helpers, which she tied in GW’s 2013 opener, and 10 points, a mark set during the 2004 and 2005 seasons. The Hatfield, Pa., product and classmates Rachel Mia (5g) and Allie Rash (4g) combined for 15 of the Buff and Blue’s 21 goals to help GW (2-1) improve to 2-0 at home and surpass the 20-goal plateau for the second time this season.
Mia netted an unassisted goal less than one minute into the contest and the Colonials took a 2-0 lead when Bumgardner found an open Rash and GW never looked back. Liberty (1-4) got on the scoreboard at 5:20 on a free position goal, but junior Lindsey DiAntonio immediately answered to push the Colonials’ lead to 3-1.
The two squads traded tallies over the next 6:11 before GW went on a 4-0 run to take an 8-3 lead at 20:57 on goals from the junior trio of Bumgardner, Mia and Rash. The Lady Flames netted consecutive goals to pull within 8-5 just over two minutes later, but it was the closest they would come for the remainder of the game as the Colonials closed the final 5:24 of the first half on a 2-1 run to take a 10-6 lead into the break.
DiAntonio found the back of the net 43 seconds into the second frame to ignite a 4-1 run as GW doubled the visitors’ score with a 14-7 lead at the 12:40 mark. Liberty scored twice and the Colonials scored once in the next two-minute span for a 15-9 score at 17:52, then GW registered four unanswered goals to extend its lead to 19-9 with just over two minutes to play.
GW outshot the visitors, 42-23, and held an 18-14 advantage in draw controls. Junior Jenn Seitz won a game- and career-high seven draw controls and sophomore Julia Lawson won three draws, picked up seven ground balls and caused four turnovers. Junior goalkeeper Mackenzie Jones made seven saves in 60 minutes of work.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday, March 1 when GW welcomes Davidson to the GW Lacrosse Field for a 1 p.m. contest.
