Denver Downs GW Lacrosse, 15-8
Pioneers Score Final Seven Goals of Game
March 25, 2012
DENVER - The host Denver Pioneers scored the final seven goals of the game to break an 8-8 tie and defeat the GW women's lacrosse team, 15-8, on Sunday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
Senior Sarah Phillips led the Colonials (6-3) with four points on a goal and three assists. She now has 97 goals in her career, three shy of becoming the fourth Colonial ever to score 100 in her career. Senior Megan Seidman and sophomore Lindsey DiAntonio each scored a team-high two goals, and Seidman added an assist for three points.
Denver (6-1) scored the first four goals of the game and led 6-2 at halftime. A quick goal by midfielder Mikayla Clark made it 7-2 just 1:25 into the second period, but DiAntonio scored back-to-back tallies less than a minute apart to spark a 5-0 GW run that tied the game at 7-7 with 15:52 to play. Freshman Addi Bolin had the equalizer, converting a feed from Phillips.
Jill Remenapp broke the tie for the Pioneers 40 seconds later before Phillips found junior Nicole Lacey to again knot the score with 14:09 on the clock.
However, Denver dominated possession the rest of the way, outshooting GW, 12-1, and scoring seven straight to end the game.
Junior goalie Jess Hicks recorded nine saves between the pipes, while Ashley Harman stopped three shots for Denver. The Pioneers outshot the Colonials, 34-15, in the game, including 18-5 in the first half.
Midfielder Melissa Maier led Denver with four goals, while attack Kara Secora tallied a game-high five points on two goals and three assists.
The Colonials return to action on Friday, when they open Atlantic 10 Conference play against Saint Joseph's at 4 p.m. at Mount Vernon Field.
