The Buff and Blue are riding a three-game winning streak and are coming off an 11-9 win over Holy Cross on Thursday in the first meeting between the two programs. Senior Nicole Lacey led GW with a team-high four goals while junior Jordy Bathras added three goals an assist. Senior goalkeeper Jess Hicks matched her season-high with 10 stops on the afternoon.
