PHILADELPHIA, PA - The George Washington women's lacrosse team held a four-goal advantage in the second half, but Drexel closed the game on a 6-1 run to deal the Colonials their third straight loss, 10-9, at Vidas Field Sunday.

Drexel (4-1) answered with four unanswered goals, three by Jessica Bill, to tie the game at 8-8 with 11:18 to play.
GW (0-3) senior Katelyn Honeyford scored on a feed from classmate Kristin Karcsh two minutes later to regain the lead. However, the Dragons got two goals in a span of 34 seconds, the game-winner with 6:05 left to knock off the Colonials for the second straight season.
Senior goalkeeper Caitlin Garman continued her solid play, finishing with 14 saves, her third consecutive double-digit save game. Garman is averaging 15.7 saves in GW's first three games. Drexel outshot GW, 33-17, and held an 18-7 edge in ground balls.
Karcsh had a goal and two assists to match Sampson's team-high three points. Breheny finished with two goals, while Karcsh and Honeyford paced the Colonials with two draws apiece. Junior Katie Lilly led the team with three ground balls and two caused turnovers.
