PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – The George Washington lacrosse team took a 6-4 lead into halftime, but Temple used an 8-3 second-half run to defeat the Colonials, 12-9, on Friday afternoon at the Owls’ Geasey Field.
Senior Nicole Lacey and sophomore Rachel Mia each recorded a hat trick for GW (8-7, 3-3 A-10), while sophomore Jamie Bumgardner added three points with a goal and two assists. The three tallies move Lacey into fifth on GW’s all-time goals list with 102 as she became the fifth-ever Colonials’ player to reach 100 career goals.
Temple (9-6, 4-2 A-10) got on the scoreboard first at 2:41 into the contest, but Lacey found the back of the net just over two minutes later off of a pass from junior Jordy Bathras. The Owls took a 2-1 lead at the 7:09 mark before the Colonials closed the half on a 5-2 run.
Bumgardner found an open Mia to knot the score a 2-2, and Mia put GW up one with a free position goal. Freshman Olivia Boudreau extended the Colonials' lead mid-way through the frame, then assisted a Bumgardner goal one minute later as GW took a 5-2 lead. Temple interrupted the Buff and Blue’s run with a free position goal, but Lacey answered with 3:18 showing on the clock for the visitor's final score of the half. Temple cut the deficit to two 1:14 before the halftime break for a 6-4 score.
The Owls opened the second frame on a 5-0 run to take a 9-6 lead and never looked back. Lacey broke up the run with a free position goal at 15:31 to cut Temple’s lead to 9-7, but the Owls responded one minute later for a 10-7 score.
The hosts closed the game with three goals while GW added two of its own, but the Colonials could not close the gap. Bumgardner assisted junior Lindsey DiAntonio’s goal at 17:01 for a 10-8 score and Mia added the Colonials’ final score on a free position shot with 8:28 remaining on the clock. Temple scored the final goal at 24:25 and maintained possession for the remainder of play.
GW travels to Saint Joseph’s (8-7, 2-4 A-10) on Sunday for its regular-season finale looking to earn a spot in next week's four-team Atlantic 10 Championship. First draw is slated for 1 p.m.
