Lacrosse Falls to Massachusetts
Colonials to host Saint Joseph’s on Friday
WASHINGTON – On a cold and rainy afternoon on the Mount Vernon Campus, the George Washington lacrosse team dropped an Atlantic 10 matchup to the league’s top-ranked team, Massachusetts, by a score of 21-8.
HOW IT HAPPENED
Making the trip to the GW Lacrosse Field with an undefeated record in conference play, the Minutewomen opened the scoring with a 5-0 run before sophomore Christine Weber found Caitlin Concannon to get GW on the board. The Colonials continued to push offensively and scored three minutes later when freshman defender Cassie Scandalios caused a turnover midfield, drove the ball into the offensive end and passed to Christine Weber, who drew the UMass keeper out of the crease and shot the ball into the empty net. The Minutewomen responded one minute later with a goal of their own, but GW fought back with a goal from senior Camaryn Kerns. UMass rebounded with a 4-0 run, but sophomore Katie Quinn was able to stop the UMass surge when she ran behind the net to fake the keeper and scored with just 25 seconds left on the clock. UMass registered one more tally to lead 11-4 at the break.
The Colonials showed their resiliency to start the second half, with senior co-captain Jocelyn Donohue scoring back-to-back goals just four minutes apart. The Buff and Blue defense tried to contain UMass throughout the game’s second stanza, but the Minutewomen continued to push on attack and scored 10 more goals, while the Colonials were only able to tally four, to end the day with the 21-8 decision.
LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will continue their home stand on Friday when they host Saint Joseph’s at 3 p.m. at the GW Lacrosse Field.
