Final Stats


PITTSBURGH – In its last road contest of the regular season, the George Washington lacrosse team fell to Duquesne, 20-13, on Sunday afternoon at Rooney Field.

HOW IT HAPPENED
The Dukes were the first to strike and went on a 3-0 run to start the game before sophomore Katie Quinn put the Colonials on the board at the 21:49 mark. Duquesne responded with three straight goals, but senior co-captain Jocelyn Donohue halted the Dukes’ surge with a goal off of a feed from freshman Ioanna Mantzouratos. GW continued to push on attack and closed the half with four consecutive tallies to pull within one at the break, 6-5.

Duquesne continued its offensive momentum and found the back of the net 14 times in the game’s second stanza while holding GW to eight goals. Camaryn Kerns went on a tear and made three straight tallies, Donohue netted two, and Caitlin Concannon and Caroline Kiernan scored one apiece, but it wasn’t enough as the Dukes took the 20-13 decision.

NOTEWORTHY

  • Freshman keeper Jenna Oler made 12 saves between the pipes and now ranks first on GW’s single-season saves list with 212 saves. Oler surpasses Emily Fortunato, who previously held the record after stopping 162 shots in 2004.

  • Seven different Colonials found the back of the net in Pittsburgh. Dohonue paced the squad with four, Kerns registered her seventh hat trick of the season, Quinn tallied two and Concannon, Cage, Kiernan, and Mantzouratos netted one each.

  • Donohue, Kiernan, Cage and Abby Carlin all snagged a trio of draw controls. For Cage, the three draws matched her career high.
  • LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will wrap up their regular season on Saturday when they host Davidson at 1 p.m. for Senior Day at the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
