GW Eliminated from A-10 Championship
Colonials Lose, 13-10, Versus Duquesne
May 6, 2005
RICHMOND, VA - The third-seeded Colonials were eliminated from the Atlantic 10 Championship on Friday, May 6, losing to #2 Duquesne in the semifinals, 13-10, at UR Stadium. GW still holds out hope for an at-large bid to the NCAA Championship and will learn its fate on Sunday, May 8 when the 16-team field is announced.
The Colonials (13-5) rallied back from a five-goal deficit against the Dukes to tie the match, 10-10, with 9:58 remaining, but Duquesne (13-3) registered the final three tallies of the game to advance to tomorrow's championship match versus Richmond. The host Spiders knocked off four-time defending champion Temple, 11-10, in the first semifinal.
Down 9-4 at the 22:54 mark, GW scored three times before the half to cut the Dukes' margin to two, 9-7, at the intermission. Duquesne's Laura App opened the second stanza with an unassisted goal to boost the Dukes' advantage to three, 10-7, at 33:48. GW reeled off the game's next three goals, including two by senior Jenny Heisler, to square the match at 50:02, but App scored twice in the final 6 minutes and 50 seconds and the Dukes' Ginger Flocco also added a goal in that stretch to produce the final score.
Junior Annie Howley led the Colonials with three goals. Senior Jamie Lee contributed one goal, moving her into a tie with sophomore Laura Hostetler for the most career goals at GW (99). Hostetler and senior captain Meghan McDonough each finished with two assists and Hostetler notched a game-high six draw controls.
Duquesne grabbed an early 2-0 lead on goals by App and Kelly Mulford and the Dukes led 5-1 at the 10:15 mark. Howley and sophomore Molly Gannon scored consecutive goals to make it a 5-3 game at 13:01, but the Dukes scored four of the game's next five goals to increase their margin to 9-4.
Flocco paced Duquesne with five points (4g, 1a). App tallied four goals in the contest and Courtney Tamasitis added two.
Freshman Caitlin Garman made seven saves in the cage for GW, while Duquesne's keeper, Sarah Pacini, stopped six shots.
The Colonials are 0-5 all-time against Duquesne.
