Temple Stops GW Lacrosse, 13-5
Colonials Outscored 10-2 in Second Half
April 23, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Temple's Tiffany Pulaski scored four goals to lead the visiting Owls past George Washington, 13-5, in an Atlantic 10 lacrosse game Friday afternoon at Mount Vernon Field in northwest Washington. The loss means GW will need help from other A-10 teams in order to gain a berth in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. GW has never made a postseason appearance in the program's three-year history.
GW (7-8, 3-3 A-10) got a pair of goals from junior Heidi Mayer (Havertown, PA/Haverford) but the Owls were relentless in the second half outscoring the Colonials 10-2 in the period.
Temple (8-7, 5-1) got on the board first when Corey Leader scored an unassisted goal less than two minutes into the contest. GW responded two minutes later when sophomore Lauren Bower (Moorestown, NJ/Moorestown) got free and tied the game at 1-1. Temple scored the next two goals before freshman Molly Gannon (Alexandria, VA/Bishop Ireton) took a feed from Mayer and deposited it in the net at the 12:30 mark. Then it was Mayer's turn three minutes later when she took a pass from Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights) to knot the game at 3-3 with more than nine minutes left. Neither team could score and the game remained tied going into halftime.
Temple came out of the break and took charge with four unanswered goals by four different players for a 7-3 lead after 12 minutes of the second period. GW's Colleen Schmidt (Wantagh, NY/ Wantagh) scored unassisted at the 13:05 mark to cut the lead to 7-4 but Temple's Pulaski scored her second goal 30 seconds later and TU's Casey Cech added another goal a the 9:47 mark.
Mayer then scored her second goal of the game to get within 9-5 before the Owls closed out the game with four more goals, two by Pulaski and a pair by Nicole Cataldo.
Temple goalie Megan McLouth faced 23 shots and saved six while GW freshman goalkeeper Emily Fortunato (Farmingdale, NY/Farmingdale) faced 30 shots and saved nine.
GW hosts Mount St. Mary's this Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Mount Vernon Field before closing out the regular season at Saint Joseph's on April 30 in Philadelphia. GW Lacrosse plays its home games at 2100 Foxhall Road in northwest Washington.
Temple (8-7, 5-1 A-10) 3 - 10 - 13
