Karcsh's First Career Goal Lifts GW to Victory
Freshman Nets Game-Winning Tally at 45:53
March 13, 2005
GETTYSBURG, PA - Freshman Kristin Karsch scored the first goal of her career at the 45:53 mark to lift GW (2-1) to a 5-4 victory over Mount St. Mary's (1-3) on Sunday, March 13 at Clark Field on the campus of Gettysburg College. The Colonials rallied from a 4-3 halftime deficit and kept Mount St. Mary's off the scoreboard for the final 34 minutes of the game to earn the triumph.
The Colonials grabbed a 3-0 lead less than 10 minutes into the contest on goals by sophomore Laura Hostetler, junior Annie Howley and senior captain Jenny Heisler. The Mount rallied, notching four straight scores to take a 4-3 margin at the half.
Howley found the back of the net for her second goal of the day 1:17 into the second half to tie the score at four goals apiece. After more than 14 minutes of scoreless lacrosse, Hostetler fed Karsch for a score with 14:07 left on the clock. Karsch's goal held up as the game-winner as the Colonials' defense denied Mount St. Mary's the game-tying tally.
Hostetler paced the Colonials with three points and leads the team with 11. Howley's two goals were her third and fourth tallies of the year, moving her into a tie with Heisler for second on the squad with five points. Sophomore Emily Fortunato played all 60 minutes in the cage for GW and made eight saves to earn her first win of the year.
Casey Paris scored twice to lead Mount St. Mary's and Jenna Duffy contributed a goal and an aedssist. Mount goalie Naomi Campano Radio stopped a game-high 12 shots in net.
Sunday's match was moved to Clark Field at Gettysbury College due to unplayable field conditions at the Mount.
The Colonials will begin conference play on Tuesday, March 15 when they compete at La Salle. The opening draw is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.
