Final Stats


WASHINGTON -- The George Washington lacrosse team continued its undefeated hot streak at home on Saturday afternoon, rolling past Mount St. Mary's, 10-7, at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. With the victory, the Colonials earned their fourth straight win for the first time since 2013 and etch their 6-1 record into the record book as the best start to a season in program history.

HOW IT HAPPENED

For the fifth time this season, GW found the back of the net first, with Jocelyn Donohue opening the scoring off of an assist from Morgan McDonnell just three minutes into the game. The Colonials continued to go on a 3-0 run, with goals from Camaryn Kerns and Caroline Kiernan, before Mount St. Mary's responded with a goal at the 13:07 mark. The Buff and Blue recorded two additional tallies and held the Mountaineers to two goals in the half, to go into the break with a 5-2 advantage.

The Colonials were the first to strike in the second half, with Katie Quinn finding the back of the net with a free position goal at the 25:17 mark. Eighteen seconds later, Mount St. Mary's rebounded with back-to-back goals, but GW continued to push on the attack with three consecutive tallies over a five minute span. The Mountaineers began to apply offensive pressure and attempted to come back, but Quinn gave the Colonials their 10th goal of the game by finding the back of the net once again from the free position. Mount St. Mary's scored two more times, but it wasn't enough, as GW took the 10-7 decision to remain undefeated at home.
