Lacrosse Tops American, 14-11
Colonials continue hot streak with third straight victory
WASHINGTON – In the short trip across town to American on Wednesday afternoon, the George Washington lacrosse team pulled through with a 14-11 victory to edge its D.C. rival and record its third-straight victory for the first time since 2013.
HOW IT HAPPENED
American got on the board first, scoring two quick goals to give the Eagles an edge through the first 10 minutes of play. The Colonials responded with a goal of their own before Jocelyn Donohue tied it up with 15:50 on the clock off of a sleek feed from Caroline Kiernan. The Buff and Blue continued on a 4-0 run with back-to-back goals, just 30 seconds apart, from Morgan McDonnell but the Eagles answered back with a 3-0 run of their own to hold a one goal lead with 3:29 to play in the half. GW continued to push on the attack and scored twice more to go into the break with a one goal advantage.
The Colonials were the first to strike in the second half, with Brooke Sands finding the back of the net at the 23:28 mark after finding a pass from Ioanna Mantzouratos. American netted its own goal 23 seconds later, but McDonnell continued her hot streak with her fourth goal of the game to give GW an 8-6 lead. The Colonials picked up the pace on the offensive end and scored six more times to pull through with the 14-11 victory.
LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will be back at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus on Saturday to host Mount St. Mary’s at 1:00 p.m.
