March 1, 2014
WASHINGTON – The George Washington lacrosse team improved to 3-0 at home for the second time in program history after defeating Davidson, 8-7, on Saturday afternoon at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
GW (3-1) used a balanced scoring attack as junior Rachel Mia and freshman Michaela Lynch tallied two goals apiece and sophomores Olivia Boudreau and Ellie Glasgow each recorded a goal and an assist. Junior Lindsey DiAntonio and rookie Shea Cassidy chipped in a goal each, and junior Jamie Bumgardner dished out three assists to move into third all-time at GW with 56 career helpers.
GW fell behind Davidson (0-3), 2-0, less than five minutes into action, but Mia found the back of the net twice over a 9:09 span off of passes from Bumgardner and Glasgow to knot the score. Lynch and Boudreau lifted the Colonials to a 4-2 lead with 6:27 to play in the first half, but the Wildcats stopped the four-goal run at the 26:53 mark to pull within one.
Bumgardner connected with DiAntonio with 1:11 showing on the clock and GW carried the 5-3 lead into the halftime break.
Davidson opened the second half with three straight goals in the first seven minutes to take a 6-5 lead, but GW responded with two tallies to regain control at 7-6. Junior Jenn Seitz found Cassidy immediately after the Colonials caused a Wildcats turnover, and Glasgow registered an unassisted goal to give GW the lead.
The Wildcats knotted the score for the fourth time at 7-7 with a goal at 18:45, but Bumgardner and Lynch connected less than a minute later for the final goal of the contest to secure the win for the Colonials.
GW outshot Davidson, 23-18, including a 14-8 margin in the second half and caused 12 Wildcats' turnovers. Junior Mackenzie Jones set aside four shots between the pipes for the Colonials in 60 minutes of work.
GW returns to action on Wednesday at No. 20/11 Navy. First draw in Annapolis, Md., is slated for 4:30 p.m.
