GW Lacrosse's Late Rally Falls Short in 10-9 Loss at Denver
Colonials Outscore Pioneers in Second Frame in Non-Conference Finale
March 29, 2014
DENVER – The George Washington lacrosse team fell just short of Denver in a 10-9 loss on Friday evening at the Pioneers’ Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
The Colonials (4-5) were down by three goals at halftime and outscored the Pioneers, 6-4, in the second frame, but they were just short of completing the comeback win on the road. The Colonials came within one at the 23:01 mark and forced a Denver timeout, but they were unable to find the back of the net in the final minutes.
GW and Denver (8-1) were knotted, 3-3, in the 20th minute of the first half, but the Pioneers took a 6-3 advantage into halftime. GW put up a vehement comeback attempt which included three late tallies in the last 8:40, but was edged by Denver – which is receiving votes in the IWLCA national poll – by just one goal.
GW was led in scoring by junior Rachel Mia with three goals and senior Jordy Bathras with two tallies. Sophomore Julia Lawson and junior Jamie Bumgardner each added a goal and an assist and junior Allie Rash and freshman Michaela Lynch chipped in one goal apiece.
Bathras netted back-to-back goals less than one minute apart and Mia added a tally to put GW up, 3-2, with 21:45 to play in the first half. Denver scored four unanswered to close the half and take a three-goal lead into the break.
Lynch opened the second frame with a goal for the Colonials just 44 seconds in but the Pioneers tallied two more to extend their lead to 8-4. Rash, Mia and Bumgardner found the back of the net in the half as GW outscored Denver, 6-4, and Lawson closed GW’s three-goal run over the final 8:40 with a free position goal with just 34 seconds showing on the clock. GW was unable to complete the comeback, however, and was edged in its non-conference finale. Junior Mackenzie Jones made a career-high 11 saves in the contest.
GW opens Atlantic 10 action with consecutive road games at Duquesne and St. Bonaventure on Friday and Sunday, April 4 and 6.
