April 18, 2004
OLEAN, NY - St. Bonaventure scored the first five goals of the game and never looked back in an 11-4 victory over George Washington Sunday afternoon in Olean, NY. Four different Colonials scored goals but GW was unable to avoid its second straight Atlantic 10 Conference loss. The Bonnies improved to 6-4 and tied George Washington, which entered this weekend?s with a 3-0 A-10 record and in sole possession of first place. GW is now 7-7 overall 3-2 in the A-10.
GW junior Jamie Lee (Berkeley, CA/Berkeley) scored George Washington's first goal of the game with 7:56 to go in the first half. St. Bonaventure sophomore Courtney Gibbons answered back with a goal less than three minutes later to put St. Bonaventure ahead 6-1 at halftime.
GW?s leading scorer, freshman Laura Hostetler (Ellicott City, MD/River Hill) was held scoreless for the first time this season.
SBU freshman goalie Eileen Gagnon made a career-high 18 saves. "We tightened up our defense and Eileen Gagnon was phenomenal. She had a career day," said Bonnies coach Tony Zostant. "We just came out fired up this weekend and played to our ability. We're right in the thick of things now in the A-10."
In the second half, freshman Katie Hurley continued the rally to make it 7-1. Colleen Schmidt (Wantagh, NY/Wantagh) and Meghan McDonough (Annapolis, MD/Annapolis) pulled GW within 7-3, but Bona freshman midfielder Megan Murphy answered at 6:36 to seal the win.
Hurley's three goals led the Bonnies' balanced attack while Gibbons added two scores. Murphy, senior Laura Spaulding, junior Kelly Chevez and sophomores Nicole Motondo, Alexis Spallone and Sarah Dressler added one goal apiece.
