Lacrosse Buries Bucknell, 16-9
Colonials improve to 4-1
WASHINGTON – After playing two consecutive games on the road, the George Washington lacrosse team made its return to the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus with a dominant 16-9 victory over Bucknell on Saturday afternoon. Jocelyn Donohue led the Colonials with five goals, Camaryn Kerns registered her fourth-straight hat trick, and freshman keeper Jenna Oler made 14 saves between the pipes to cement the GW victory.
HOW IT HAPPENED
For the fourth time this season, it was the Buff and Blue that found the back of the net first, with Jocelyn Donohue giving GW an early edge at the 23:24 mark. Bucknell responded with a goal of its own, but the rest of the half was all GW. The Colonials dominated on the offensive end, ending the first half on a 6-0 run. In that span, Donohue completed a hat trick, Kerns added a pair of goals, and Caroline Kiernan and Katie Quinn netted one apiece.
After the break, Quinn struck once again, this time just twenty seconds into the second half off of a feed from Morgan McDonnell. GW scored once more before Bucknell went on a 3-0 run of its own. The two teams continued to trade goals to make it 11-7 with 12:16 to play, but the Colonials held their ground and found the back of the net five more times, while the Bison only scored twice more, to take the 16-9 victory.
LOOK AHEAD: The lacrosse squad will make the short trip to take on local rival American on Wednesday at 3 p.m.
