April 11, 2014
WASHINGTON – The George Washington lacrosse team fell to No. 10/11 Massachusetts, 20-6, on Friday afternoon at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Juniors Rachel Mia (2g) and Allie Rash (2a) each recorded two points for GW (5-7, 1-2 A-10), but it was not enough to overcome nationally ranked UMass. Freshman Michaela Lynch won a game-high five draw controls and sophomore Gabbi Hull matched the game-high with three caused turnovers while picking up a pair of ground balls. Junior Mackenzie Jones made eight saves in goal for the Colonials.
UMass (12-1, 3-0 A-10) took a four-goal lead over the opening 6:24, but sophomore Olivia Boudreau broke up the run when she scored off a pass from Rash at the 8:01 mark to put GW on the scoreboard. The Minutewomen added three more tallies to extend their lead to 7-1 when Bathras found the back of the net on an unassisted goal at 12:35 to pull the Colonials within five.
UMass outscored GW, 5-1, the remainder of the half and took a 12-3 advantage into halftime. Mia broke up the Minutewomen run via an assist from Hull with 48 seconds showing on the clock.
The visitors scored a goal 1:15 into the second period, but GW responded just over a minute later when Rash found an open Vassallo in front of the net for the Colonials’ fourth goal of the afternoon. UMass added another score to take a 14-4 lead, but Bumgardner scored 7:16 later on an unassisted shot.
The Minutewomen added five more goals over the next 10 minutes and Mia scored GW’s final goal on a free position shot at 27:03. UMass netted the final goal of the game with 1:48 to play.
GW wraps road action on Sunday afternoon when it travels to take on Richmond. First draw at the Spiders’ Robins Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m.
