Lacrosse Stumbles at Duquesne, 17-10
First A-10 Loss Snaps Five-Game Win Streak
April 16, 2004
PITTSBURGH, PA - The George Washington lacrosse team suffered its first Atlantic 10 Conference loss of the season and broke a program-best five-game winning streak with a 17-10 setback to Duquesne Friday afternoon in Pittsburgh. The loss also dropped GW into a tie for first place with Duquesne and Richmond, all at 3-1 in league play. Duquesne hosts Richmond Sunday while the Colonials travel to St. Bonaventure for a Sunday matinee at noon.
Duquesne (9-3 overall, 3-1 Atlantic 10) was led by freshman Courtney Tamasitis with a career-high six goals. DU juniors Laura App and Ginger Flocco added four goals each. Sarah Pacini went the distance in goal recording 13 saves on 25 shots. GW freshman goalkeeper Emily Fortunato (Farmingdale, NY/Farmingdale) faced 34 shots and saved nine.
The Colonials scored first in the 4th minute as Lee took a feed from Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights), but the Dukes answered with an unassisted score from App (12:04) and a Tamasitis goal from Meredith Williams (12:19) off a GW turnover for a 2-1 edge. Laura Hostetler (Ellicott City, MD/River Hill) notched her lone goal of the game at 18:42 to even the score, but Duquesne rattled off four unassisted goals to end the period and take a 5-2 edge at the break.
Duquesne upped its lead to 8-3 eight minutes into the second half before the
Colonials inched within a 6-9 reach at 13:39. Williams broke a five-minute
scoring drought for the Dukes with a goal from Jen Lorenze at 14:01 and
would finish the contest scoring two goals to each GW goal for the 17-10
GW has never defeated Duquesne in three meetings.
