March 7, 2014
WASHINGTON – The George Washington lacrosse team will face its second straight nationally ranked opponent when it welcomes No. 17/14 Johns Hopkins to the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus on Saturday for a 1 p.m. matchup.
GW (3-2) opens a three-game homestand on Saturday and looks to remain unbeaten on its own turf after topping Howard (24-7), Liberty (21-10) and Davidson (8-7) to open the season. The squad has outscored its opponents, 53-24, at the GW Lacrosse Field and has outshot its visitors on average, 34.0-18.7, while limiting them to a .429 shot percentage.
The Colonials look to rebound following a 14-8 loss at No. 20/13 Navy on Wednesday evening. GW was led in scoring against the Midshipmen by sophomore Olivia Boudreau, who registered a goal and two assists, in addition to a career-high two goals from sophomore Julia Lawson and two tallies from junior Allie Rash.
Reigning Atlantic 10 Player of the Week Jamie Bumgardner (11g, 17a) paces GW in scoring with 28 points on the season while Rash (9g, 2a) and classmate Rachel Mia (10g) follow with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Junior defender Jenn Seitz has won a team-high 19 draw controls this year while Lawson, the A-10 Defensive Player of the Week, has picked up a team-high 13 ground balls and recorded a team-best eight caused turnovers.
Johns Hopkins (6-0), ranked No. 17 in the IWLCA Coaches Poll and No. 14 in the Brine Media Poll, puts its unbeaten record on the line when it comes to the district on Saturday after defeating No. 11/15 Towson, 12-8, on Wednesday. Taylor D’Amore (20g, 15a, 18dc), Dene’ Dimartino (17g, 1a, 13dc) and Sammy Cermack (12g, 5a, 14dc) lead the Blue Jays’ offense with 35, 18 and 17 points, respectively. Goalkeeper KC Emerson owns a 5.54 goals-against average and has set aside 18 shots for a .439 save percentage.
