Lacrosse Holds Off Le Moyne, 12-9
Jamie Lee Scores Three Goals to Power Colonials
March 22, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - GW sophomore Jamie Lee (Berkeley, CA/Berkeley) scored a pair of goals in the first half and added a third goal in the second half to propel George Washington past Le Moyne, 12-9, Saturday at GW's Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
GW freshmen Lauren Bower (Moorestown, NJ/Moorestown) and Katie Kearns (Glenside, PA/Cheltenham) each added a pair of goals including Kearns' first score barely three minutes into the match to set the tone.
The Colonials (4-2) scored the first four goals of the match before the Dolphins got on the scoreboard on a goal by Amanda Daniels with 9:42 remaining in the first half. Bower answered with a goal a minute later before Daniels scored again with 3:15 left in the first period. GW closed out the first half on goals by freshman Megan Baldwin (West Hartford, CT/Kingswood Oxford) and Lee's second goal just 18 seconds apart for an 8-4 advantage at the break.
Le Moyne (0-3) came out firing in the second half as Liz Hewitt and Tara Walberger tallied scores in the first 1:25 after intermission to close to within two at 8-6. Bower's second goal gave GW a little breathing room before Le Moyne's Daniels struck for two goals to make the score 9-8 in favor of the Colonials.
GW junior Jacqueii Arfaa (Bel Air, MD/John Carroll) scored with 8:48 left followed by Lee's third goal 25 seconds later to boost GW's lead to 11-8. GW sophomore Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights) added a goal with just four seconds left in the match to close out the scoring.
GW (4-2, 0-1 A-10) next hosts Saint Joseph's (0-3, 0-0 A-10) in an Atlantic 10 Conference match Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
