Seven Different Colonials Score Two Goals Each
April 9, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington lacrosse team got a pair of goals from seven different players, including two from four-time A-10 Rookie of the Week, Laura Hostetler (Ellicott City, MD/River Hill) to breeze past visiting La Salle University, 14-7, Friday afternoon at Mount Vernon Field in northwest Washington. It marked GW's fourth straight victory equalling the longest streak in the program's three-year history.
GW (6-5, 2-0 A-10) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first five minutes on goals by Heidi Mayer (Havertown, PA/Haverford), Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights) and Lauren Bower (Moorestown, NJ/Moorestown).
La Salle (3-7, 0-2 A-10) got on the scoreboard at the 21:35 mark on a free position goal by Kristen Davis to make it 3-1. The Colonials scored the next four unanswered goals, including two by Hostetler, to take a 7-1 lead into halftime.
The teams traded the first six goals to begin the second half. La Salle struck first with Davis' second goal just 1:34 into the period on another free position shot. GW's Meghan McDonough (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis) answered with a goal of her own a minute later. Then La Salle's Kate Henwood added a goal at the 16:52 mark followed by a GW goal by Katie Kearns (Glennside, PA/Cheltenham) just 34 seconds later. Once again La Salle responded when Tracy Guenther took a pass from Davis and scored to cut the deficit to 9-4 with 14 minutes remaining.
Feeling the pressure, GW responded with a pair of goals by Jamie Lee (Berkeley, CA/Berkeley) for an 11-4 advantage. The Explorers weren't finished, however, and added two more goals, one each by Catie Borneman and Rebecca Boudwin to make it 11-6 with 10:34 showing.
GW then put the game away with three goals in a two-minute span, one each by Heisler, Mayer and Kearns.
GW freshman goalkeeper Emily Fortunato (Farmingdale, NY/Farmingdale) faced 23 shots and saved 11 while LU goalkeeper Brittany Friedrich faced 42 shots and recorded 15 saves.
GW's next game takes place this Sunday, April 11, when the Colonials host Massachusetts in an Atlantic 10 Conference game beginning at noon at the Mount Vernon Lacrosse Field. GW Lacrosse plays its home games at 2100 Foxhall Road in northwest Washington.
