Women's Lacrosse Buffalos Bison, 19-5
Lee, Baldwin and Bower Record Four Points Each to Lead Colonials
April 9, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington balanced outstanding offense with suffocating defense, exploding for 19 goals and holding Howard to just a single score in the second half, to top the hosts 19-5 at Greene Stadium on the Bison's campus.
GW (6-4) matched a team record for goals scored in one match with the 19 goals, tying the mark that was set earlier this season when they topped visiting Stony Brook 19-6. The 14-goal margin of victory over HU (2-6) was also the largest in program history.
After falling behind 1-0 to open the match, the Colonials scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead with 18:30 remaining in the half. The Bison would respond with a pair of scores of their own to knot the match at 3-3 with ten minutes on the clock, but GW would respond by outscoring HU 5-1 to close out the half and take an 8-4 lead into the break. Freshmen Colleen Schmidt and Megan Baldwin led the charge in the first half, tallying two goals each.
The Colonials put the match away early in the second half, scoring five unanswered goals over the first 15 minutes, and holding the Bison to a single score for the remainder of the match. Sophomore Jamie Lee would score three times in the second half to record four goal for the match, and Baldwin found the back of the net two more times to match Lee's output.
Junior goalkeeper Rachel Abdulla had her best match of the season, limiting the Bison to just five scores while facing 31 shots and recording a career-high 13 saves. Freshman Lauren Bower continued her strong play this season scoring three goals and adding an assist to bring her point total for the season to 24, ranking her second on the team in points and first in total goals with 19.
The Colonials travel to Philadelphia, PA to take on La Salle on April 11, 2003 at 3:30 p.m. in an Atlantic 10 match.
