March 16, 2013
BALTIMORE, Md. – The George Washington lacrosse team dropped a 16-6 decision to No. 12 Johns Hopkins on Saturday afternoon at Homewood Field.
The Colonials (5-3) saw their four-game winning streak snapped as they fell to their first nationally ranked opponent of the season in the 12th-ranked Blue Jays (5-2). Six different players scored for GW on the afternoon, including rookie Julia Lawson with her first collegiate tally. Junior Jordy Bathras led all scorers with a goal and two assists.
Hopkins netted the first seven goals of the game, opening with a free position goal 16 seconds into action. Bathras then connected with classmate Terasa Vassallo at the 22:23 mark to put GW on the scoreboard.
The Blue Jays added another goal to take an 8-1 lead when Bathras found the back of the net off of a pass from sophomore Jamie Bumgardner at 28:11. Hopkins added another with two seconds remaining in the opening frame to take a 9-2 lead into halftime.
GW doubled its goal production in the second half as the squad fired off 11 shots, compared to seven in the first. Junior Lindsey DiAntonio opened the stanza with a free position goal at 1:37, but Hopkins followed with consecutive goals to extend its lead to 11-3.
Lawson tallied her first collegiate goal at 5:38 for the Colonials’ fourth score, and the Blue Jays followed less than three minutes later. Bathras recorded her second helper of the day when she assisted sophomore Rachel Mia’s goal midway through the half.
JHU closed the contest on a 4-1 run over the final 14:20. Senior Nicole Lacey chipped in GW’s final goal at 20:26 on an unassisted shot. With 20 goals and two assists on the year, Lacey is now tied for 10th on the Colonials’ all-time points list with 110.
The Blue Jays’ Dene DiMartino and Sammy Cermack led all scores with three goals apiece. GW goalkeeper Jess Hicks made eight saves on the afternoon.
The Colonials kick off a three-game homestand when they welcome Navy to the GW Lacrosse Field on Wednesday, March 20 for a 4 p.m. contest.
