Lacrosse Conquers Mount St. Mary's, 16-6
Hostetler's Seven Goals Breaks School Record
April 25, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington's freshman sensation Laura Hostetler (Ellicott City, MD/River Hill) broke her own school record by scoring seven goals in GW's 16-6 drubbing of visiting Mount St. Mary's Sunday afternoon at Mount Vernon Field in northwest Washington. Hostetler had established the previous single-game mark of six goals on March 26 against Howard University. She nearly equalled that feat in the first half alone on Sunday. The Senior Day game marked the final home appearance for GW's lone senior, Maria Druke (Oshkosh, WI/Lourdes).
GW (8-8, 3-3 A-10) opened the scoring when Hostetler scored an unassisted goal less than two minutes into the contest. GW junior Jenny Heisler (Shaker Heights, OH/Shaker Heights) added a second goal less than two minutes later followed by a Jamie Lee (Berkeley, CA/Berkeley) goal two minutes after that. Hostetler then added two more goals to give the Colonials a commanding 5-0 lead barely 10 minutes into the game.
Mount St. Mary's (12-4) got on the scoreboard when Kim Keene scored on a free position shot at the 13:48 mark followed by two more unassisted Hostetler goals. GW sophomore Katie Kearns (Glennside, PA/Cheltenham) then got into the act with a goal at the 5:18 mark followed by a Heisler goal and a score from sophomore Colleen Schmidt (Wantagh, NY/ Wantagh) to send the teams to halftime with the Colonials owning a 10-1 advantage.
The Mount came out of the break determined to close the gap and scored the first three goals of the second period. The first by Erin LaMotte on a pass from Katie Mason followed by a pair of goals by Mason herself to cut the deficit to 10-4.
The scoring barrage seemed to wake up the Colonials who responded with the next six goals for a 16-4 lead to put the game away. MSM's LaMotte added a pair of goals in the final five minutes for the final margin.
GW freshman goalkeeper Emily Fortunato (Farmingdale, NY/Farmingdale) faced 17 shots and saved seven while Mount St. Mary's goalie Naomi Campano saved 10 shots before being replaced late in the game by Jacqui Ricca.
GW closes out the regular season at Saint Joseph's on April 30 with a 5:00 p.m. game in Philadelphia. The Colonials need a victory over the Hawks to secure their first-ever postseason berth in the Atlantic 10 Tournament, May 7-8.
