ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The George Washington lacrosse team fell to No. 20/13 Navy, 14-8, at the Midshipmen’s Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Facing their first nationally ranked opponent of the season, the Colonials trailed 7-3 at halftime and registered five goals in the second half, but the Midshipmen used two seven-goal periods to stay undefeated and improve to 6-0 on the season. GW (3-2) was led in scoring by sophomore Olivia Boudreau with a goal and two assists, while classmate Julia Lawson recorded a career-high two goals and junior Allie Rash chipped in two tallies.
Navy took a 3-0 lead 2:34 into action but GW broke up the run when Boudreau found an open Rash in front of the net to put the Buff and Blue on the scoreboard. The Midshipmen extended their lead to 4-1 less than a minute later, but senior Lindsey DiAntonio cut the Navy lead to two off of a free position goal, and Lawson pulled GW within one at the 12:02 mark when she carried the ball up the field following a Navy turnover and found her way around goalkeeper Annie Foky. Lawson would record GW’s final goal of the half, but the Midshipmen tacked on three more scores to take a four-goal lead into the break.
Navy scored first to open the second frame before Boudreau and senior Terasa Vassallo netted consecutive goals in a 3:16 span to cut the deficit to 8-5. The squads traded tallies over the next 1:43 as Boudreau found Rash for the second time for a 9-6 score before Navy went on a five-goal run to take a 14-6 lead at 23:25.
Lawson registered her second goal of the contest to snap the Colonials’ scoring draught with 4:33 remaining on the clock and rookie Cassidy Shollenberger netted the final score of the game with 1:32 to play.
The Colonials face their second consecutive nationally ranked opponent when they welcome No. 17/14 Johns Hopkins to the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus on Saturday, March 8 at 1 p.m.
