March 11, 2014
WASHINGTON – George Washington lacrosse continues its three-game homestand on Wednesday afternoon when it welcomes non-conference foe Mount St. Mary’s to the GW Lacrosse Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. First draw is scheduled for 4 p.m.
The Colonials (3-3) are coming off consecutive losses to nationally ranked opponents in No. 20 Navy (14-8) and No. 17 Johns Hopkins (17-3). Sophomore Olivia Boudreau paced the Colonials with two goals and two assists for four points in the pair of games, while junior Allie Rash contributed three goals and classmate Jamie Bumgardner dished out three assists.
Bumgardner, who leads GW with 30 points on the strength of 11 goals and 19 assists, is tied for 11th in NCAA Division I in total points and is tied for 12th with 5.0 points per game. She ranks third in the nation in assists and seventh in assists per game with 3.17. Rash (10g, 2a) is second on the team with 12 points and junior Rachel Mia (10g) has recorded 10 points.
Junior defender Jenn Seitz owns the team lead and is tied for 42nd in D-I with 22 draw controls on the year, while the Colonials are tied for 19th in the nation with 84 draws won and 14.0 draw controls per game. Junior goalkeeper Mackenzie Jones has set aside 24 shots and owns an 11.50 goals-against average in 267 minutes of work while rookie Erin Long has made 11 saves between the pipes during her first three games in Buff and Blue.
Mount St. Mary’s (1-4) comes to GW on a two-game skid after falling to American (11-9) and A-10 newcomer George Mason (13-5) at home last week. Lindsay Diaz (8g, 4a) leads the Mount’s offense with 12 points and Kelly Maloney (7g, 2a) and Hannah Gutcher (6g, 2a) have registered nine and eight points, respectively. The Mount have been outscored, 54-38, by their opponents this season and goalkeeper Steph Rurkowski owns a 10.80 goals-against average.
The Colonials lead the all-time series over the Mount, 9-3, and have won the last three meetings between the two squads. Last season GW rolled to a 16-7 win over Mount St. Mary’s on the road.
