Lacrosse Edges Saint Joseph's, 7-6
Colonials Record First A-10 Victory in Program's History
March 23, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - GW freshman Colleen Schmidt (Wantagh, NY/Wantagh) scored the game-winning goal with 6:54 remaining to lift George Washington to its first-ever Atlantic 10 Conference victory, 7-6, over visiting Saint Joseph's Sunday at GW's Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The league victory was a miletone for the GW lacrosse program, now in its second season, after going winless in Atlantic 10 play last year.
Early on, it looked like Saint Joseph's might run away with the game after the Hawks jumped on GW for three goals to open the match. The first two by Kelly Butler within the first five minutes and a third by Kerry O'Connell just six minutes into the game. GW sophomore Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights) got the Colonials on the scoreboard with a goal at the 14:12 mark of the first half but Butler answered with her third goal just three minutes later.
The Colonials came out firing in the second half with a pair of quick strikes by sophomore Jamie Lee (Berkeley, CA/Berkeley) and Heisler's second tally in the first 2:50 of the period to put the Colonials ahead, 5-4.
Saint Joseph's (0-4, 0-1 Atlantic 10) responded with a pair of goals, one by junior Amie Schmoltze and a second by Kristen Teklinsky to recapture a 6-5 advantage.
Lee scored the equalizer at the 9:46 mark to set the stage for Schmidt's heroics.
GW (5-2, 1-1 Atlantic 10) next travels across town to play at Howard University Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.
