April 27, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials ended their season with their second Atlantic 10 victory in the program's history, topping the visiting Saint Bonaventure Bonnies 15-8 on senior day at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
GW (7-8, 2-5) was led by sophomore Jamie Lee who scored three goals and added two assists as the Colonials scored six unanswered goals to open the second half and pull away from SBU (11-4, 3-4) for good.
The Bonnies struck first when Lauren Spaulding netted a goal just three minutes into the match. However, the 1-0 lead would be SBU's last, as GW responded with four scores over the next 15 minutes to take a 4-1 lead with 12:27 remaining in the half.
SBU would pull within two scores before the break, outscoring GW 3-2 as the half wound down. The two teams combined for four goals in the final two minutes and the Colonials took a 6-4 lead into the break.
GW put the match out of reach to open the second half, scoring six-straight goals to build a 12-4 lead with 12 minutes remaining in the match. The Colonials would add three more scores in the half and hold off the Bonnies for the 15-8 victory.
In addition to Lee's production, freshman Katie Kearns added four scores, while sophomores Meghan McDonough (two goals and one assist) and Jenny Heisler (one goal two assists) notched three points apiece. Goalkeeper Rachel Abdulla also had an outstanding match, recording 16 saves while facing 31 shots, 24 of which were on goal.
The Colonials finish the season with a 7-8 record overall, an improvement of three victories over last season's win total. GW also recorded the first two conference victories this season with wins over Saint Joseph's (3-23-03) and St. Bonaventure.
GW also bid farewell to three seniors who played their last match for the Colonials on Sunday. Andrea Ahn, Raffaella Ceriello and Varina Lin were members of the women's lacrosse club, and were integral members of the varsity squad in its first two seasons of play.
