Senior Sarah Phillips Becomes All-Time Career Points Leader

Senior Sarah Phillips, who is already GW’s all-time career assists leader, tallied a game-high six points in the contest (4 g, 2 a) and surpassed Laura Hostetler’s all-time career points record of 211 set in 2006. Phillips has totaled 212 points in her four years at GW and 72 points on the year, and is currently ranked second in the Atlantic 10 and eighth in NCAA Division I.
Senior Megan Seidman tallied five points with four goals and one assist, and junior Nicole Lacey added two goals while also winning five draw controls. With the loss, the Colonials fall to 3-3 in conference play while the Dukes hold onto third place in the league standings. The top four teams in the final standings qualify for the 2012 A-10 Championship in
GW (9-6, 3-3) fell behind early when Duquesne’s Caitlin Prince scored an unassisted goal just 40 seconds into action, but the Colonials responded just over five minutes later when freshman Allie Rash and Lacey connected to knot the score.
The Dukes (11-5, 4-2 A-10) registered four of the next five goals to take a 5-2 lead at the 16:18 mark. Seidman scored on a pass from Phillips at 21:53 for GW’s second tally, and scored the third on an unassisted goal at 15:51 to break up a three-goal Duquesne run.
The Dukes scored four straight goals over the next 10 minutes to take a 9-3 lead, but Phillips stopped the run with an unassisted goal with 3:01 remaining in the half, then connected with Seidman again at 2:14 to cut the deficit to four. DU netted the final goal of the half with just 10 seconds showing on the clock to take a five-goal lead into the break.
Phillips opened the second half with a free position goal, but Duquesne answered with four straight goals to take a 14-6 advantage. The Colonials mimicked the Dukes with four straight of their own over a 12-minute span. Phillips scored an unassisted goal at 16:54, and senior Hilary Quinn found an open Seidman for a 14-8 score. Phillips netted her fourth unassisted goal at 12:24, followed by a goal by Lacey off a pass from Seidman.
Duquesne found the back of the net at 2:09 for the final goal of the game. The Dukes’ goalkeeper Liz Walker made 14 saves.
GW’s junior Jess Hicks made 10 stops between the pipes, including six in the first half.
The Colonials travel to St. Bonaventure on Sunday for their final contest of the regular-season. Action is set for 1 p.m.
