GW Lacrosse Falls to No. 17/14 Johns Hopkins, 17-3
Colonials Continue Homestand on Wednesday Against Mount St. Mary's
March 8, 2014
WASHINGTON – Facing its second nationally ranked opponent in as many games, George Washington lacrosse fell to No. 17/14 Johns Hopkins, 17-3, on Saturday afternoon at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Sophomore Olivia Boudreau, junior Allie Rash and freshman Michaela Lynch registered goals for GW while junior Jamie Bumgardner dished out two assists on the afternoon. The Colonials (3-3) outshot the undefeated Blue Jays (7-0), 13-12, in the second half and forced five turnovers throughout the contest.
Johns Hopkins – which leads the nation in scoring defense – recorded nine straight goals over a 27:10 span in the first half before GW broke up the run. Following a shot from rookie Cassidy Shollenberger, Lynch picked up the ground ball to maintain possession and Boudreau found the back of the net on an unassisted shot with just under two minutes to play in the half to put the Colonials on the scoreboard.
The Blue Jays tacked on two more goals to close the half and they took an 11-1 lead into the break.
Rash and Lynch tallied back-to-back goals for the Buff and Blue in the opening 4:01 of the second frame, both of which were assisted by Bumgardner, but they would be the final scores of the contest for GW. JHU added six more goals over the final 25:23 to solidify the decision.
GW continues its three-game homestand on Wednesday, March 12 when it welcomes Mount St. Mary’s for a 4 p.m. game.
