Lacrosse Edges Robert Morris, 9-7
Colonials pick up third victory of the season
MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. – After dropping its first match of the 2018 season last week, the George Washington lacrosse team bounced back with a 9-7 victory at Robert Morris on Saturday afternoon to improve to 3-1 on the season.
HOW IT HAPPENED
It was the visiting Colonials that found the back of the net first, with freshman Ioanna Mantzouratos making a quick strike into the Robert Morris cage in the opening 27 seconds of play. GW increased its lead to 3-0 with back-to-back goals from senior co-captain Jocelyn Donohue before Robert Morris was finally able to get in the scoring column at the 13:22 mark. The home team was able to tally one more goal, but senior Camaryn Kerns fired back with a goal of her own to give GW a 4-2 edge going into the half.
After the break, the Colonials continued to apply pressure and were able to find the back of the net once again with a goal from sophomore Katie Quinn. Robert Morris responded with a goal two minutes later, but the GW defense continued to hold its ground while the attack went on a 3-0 run. Robert Morris battled back with a 3-0 run of its own, but GW scored one more time to secure the 9-7 victory.
After back-to-back games on the road, GW will return home next Saturday, March 10 at 1:00p.m. to host Bucknell at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
