Lacrosse Edged at VCU
Colonials to host Massachusetts on Sunday
RICHMOND – After trailing by as many as four goals in the first half, the George Washington lacrosse team scored eight times in the game’s second stanza and was able to pull within one with 56 seconds left on the clock, but could not complete the comeback, falling to VCU, 13-12, at Cary Street Field on Friday evening.
HOW IT HAPPENED
The Rams were the first to find the back of the net, scoring their first tally at the 25:32 mark before going on a 3-0 run. The Colonials fought back and were able to stop the VCU surge when sophomore Posie Paoletta caused a turnover on the defensive end and passed the ball to classmate Katie Quinn to get GW on the board. VCU responded with back-to-back goals, but the Colonials battled back with three quick goals of their own in the final three minutes of the half. In that span, Quinn scored her second goal of the day and senior Camaryn Kerns made two tallies to bring the game within one (5-4) going into the break.
VCU came out hot in the second half, scoring consecutive goals in the opening two minutes of action, before Quinn once again stopped the Rams’ run and completed her hat track. The two teams began to trade goals, with freshman Ioanna Mantzouratos and senior co-captain Jocelyn Donohue bringing the Colonials within two with 19:12 to play. VCU bounced back with a 3-0 surge, but GW matched its A-10 oppoent with a 3-0 run of its own with goals from Quinn, Mantzouratos, and Donohue. The Rams added another tally to make it 13-10 at the 2:28 mark, but the Colonials didn’t let up and scored twice more to bring the game within one with 56 seconds on the clock. GW won the final draw of the game, but the Rams held strong to pull away with the 13-12 victory.
UP NEXT: The Colonials will welcome Massachusetts to the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus for a noon draw on Sunday.
