Lee and Hostetler Combine for Nine Goals in Victory Over La Salle
GW Opens Conference Play with 13-7 Decision Versus Explorers
March 15, 2005
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Senior Jamie Lee scored five times and sophomore Laura Hostetler contributed four goals to lead GW (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic 10) past La Salle (1-3, 0-1 Atlantic 10), 13-7, on Tuesday, March 15 at McCarthy Stadium. Lee's five tallies represents the highest goals total by a Colonial so far this year and is tied for third on GW's single-game goals scored list.
The duo combined to score the Colonials' first four goals of the second half to help GW extend a 5-4 margin at the 30:15 mark to 9-4 advantage at 35:29. The Explorers scored three times over the next 7:30 to cut GW's lead to 9-7, but the Colonials reeled off the last four markers of the contest to produce the final score and give GW a victory in the league opener for both teams.
Hostetler also recorded two assists on the day to finish with a game-high six points. Senior captain Meghan McDonough also netted two goals in the win. Lee's five scores gives her seven on the season and she is the Colonials' career goals leader with 86 tallies. Sophomore Emily Fortunato made three saves in one half of play to record her second straight victory. Freshman Caitlin Garman played the second half between the pipes and stopped five shots. Senior captain Erin Berry anchored GW's defense with three ground balls and four caused turnovers.
Emily Bonczek paced La Salle, scoring four of its seven goals. Kristen Davis and Kate Henwood each tallied two points for the Explorers, while goalie Brittany Friedrich made 12 saves in the cage.
The Colonials took an early 2-0 lead on two unassisted scores by Lee. La Salle tied the match on goals by Bonczek and Becky Boudwin at 9:10 and 10:35, respectively. The Colonials rattled off the next three markers of the game before Bonczek found the net with four seconds to go in the first half to cut GW's lead to 5-3 at the intermission.
The Colonials continue their four-game road trip with a contest at Davidson on Friday, March 18 at 3:30 p.m.
