Hostetler Ties Single-Game Scoring Record
Colonials Hammer Saint Joseph's, 17-5
April 15, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - Sophomore Laura Hostetler tied her own school record for points in a game with 10 in GW's, 17-5, victory over A-10 foe Saint Joseph's on Friday, April 15 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. Hostetler notched six goals and four assists in the contest, matching her 10-point performance versus Howard on March 26, 2004.
Hostetler has 60 points this season, two shy of tying her single-season mark established last year. Her four assists against the Hawks increased her season total to 17, tying the GW record set by Hostetler and senior Jenny Heisler in 2004. The midfielder's six goals gives her 43 on the season, two short of that single-season program standard. Hostetler also finished the game with two ground balls, two draw controls, and three caused turnovers.
Heisler contributed a hat trick against Saint Joseph's (4-5, 1-2 Atlantic 10) and added an assist for a season-high four points. Classmate Meghan McDonough also scored three times versus the Hawks. The pair is tied for the GW career lead in assists with 45.
The Colonials (10-3, 4-1 Atlantic 10) controlled the game from the outset, netting three goals in the first five minutes on their way out to a 7-0 lead at the 13:07 mark. The Hawks' Lindsey-Kate McCool got Saint Joseph's on the board with a free-position goal at 14:14, but McDonough registered an unassisted tally at 24:54 to reclaim a seven-goal cushion for the Colonials. Saint Joseph's Jenny Egan found the back of the cage with 39 seconds to go in the half to make the score 8-2 at the break.
The bulge reached eight as senior Jamie Lee and Heisler each scored on feeds by Hostetler to open the second half. Saint Joseph's cut the deficit to seven, 10-3, on a goal by Kristina Jaggers at 38:31, but that's as close as it would get. GW outscored the Hawks, 7-2, the remainder of the match to post the 12-goal win.
The triumph avenged last year's season-ending 14-13 loss versus the Hawks that ended GW's hopes of qualifying for the A-10 Championship.
Junior Colleen Schmidt tied her personal best with three points on Friday (1g, 2a), matching her three-goal performance the 2004 season finale. Freshman Caitlin Garman made six saves in the cage for GW and improved to 7-1 on the season.
Jaggers and McCool each scored two points to lead Saint Joseph's. Courtney Huff made 16 saves in the cage for the Hawks.
The Colonials dominated statistically, out-shooting Saint Joseph's, 40-14, and holding a 16-8 advantage in draw controls.
GW will host Patriot League opponent Colgate at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 17 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
