GW Lacrosse Edged by Delaware, 10-8
Colonials Outscore Blue Hens, 6-2, in Second Half
March 22, 2014
WASHINGTON – George Washington lacrosse outscored Delaware, 6-2, in the second half, but it was not enough to overcome the halftime deficit as the Colonials were edged, 10-8, on Saturday afternoon at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Down 8-2 at the break, GW (4-4) erupted with a four-goal run in the opening 12:27 of the second half to pull within two of Delaware (7-3), but the Blue Hens scored twice more to narrowly top the Colonials. Senior Lindsey DiAntonio, freshman Michaela Lynch and junior Rachel Mia netted two goals apiece and juniors Jamie Bumgardner and Jenn Seitz each chipped in a goal to round out the Buff and Blue’s attack.
Delaware took a 2-0 lead at the 4:20 mark but DiAntonio put GW on the scoreboard just over two minutes later with an unassisted goal. The Blue Hens added three more tallies over the next 1:38, but Seitz broke up the run when she picked up a ground ball following a Delaware turnover and found the back of the net for her second career goal. The Blue Hens closed the final three minutes of the period with three scores and took a six-goal advantage into halftime.
GW came out of the break with consecutive unassisted goals from Lynch and Mia just 12 seconds apart to cut the deficit to four. Bumgardner then found her way around Delaware goalkeeper Tori Zorovich at the 2:57 mark and Lynch scored her second goal 9:30 later.
Delaware scored twice more to take a 10-6 lead with 12:13 to play for its final goals of the game. Mia and DiAntonio both added unassisted goals for the Colonials to wrap action at 18:52 and 28:39.
Freshman Erin Long and junior Mackenzie Jones split time in goal between the halves, as Long made three saves and Jones set aside six shots. GW caused 10 of Delaware’s 16 turnovers, five of which were caused by sophomore Cara Dellavecchia.
GW returns to action on Friday, March 28, at Denver. First draw is slated for 7 p.m. MT (9 p.m. ET).
