Feb. 28, 2014
WASHINGTON - George Washington lacrosse will face its second straight Big South opponent on Saturday when it welcomes Davidson to the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus for a 1 p.m. contest.
The Colonials look to improve to 3-0 at Mount Vernon after defeating Liberty, 21-10, on Wednesday afternoon for their second home win of the young season. GW (2-1) eclipsed the 20-goal plateau for the second time this season and was paced by junior Jamie Bumgardner's program-record 12-point game on six goals and single-game record six assists. The Hatfield, Pa., native and classmates Rachel Mia (5g) and Allie Rash (4g) combined for 15 of the Colonials' 21 goals.
Bumgardner (11g, 13a) leads the Buff and Blue in scoring with 24 points on the season, and she has moved into fourth all-time at GW with 53 career assists. Rash (7g, 2a) has combined for nine points through three games while Mia (8g) has tallied eight points. Junior defender Jenn Seitz has won a team-high 15 draw controls on the year and sophomore Julia Lawson paces the Buff and Blue with eight ground balls and six caused turnovers. Junior goalkeeper Mackenzie Jones has set aside 15 shots and owns a 9.60 goals-against average.
Davidson (0-2), which will join the Atlantic 10 Conference for the 2014-15 academic year, has opened the season with back-to-back losses. The Wildcats fell to San Diego State, 11-10, in their season opener then dropped a 14-5 decision at No. 19 Navy on Sunday. Leading the Davidson offense is Emily Rademacher (5g, 1a) with six points while Emily Cooke (1g, 3a) has recorded four points on the year. Goalkeeper Katy Boyle has made 20 saves and owns a 12.50 goals-against average.
GW is a 5-0 all-time against its future conference rival, with the last meeting between the two programs coming during the 2007 season when the Colonials defeated the Wildcats, 11-9, on the road.
