GW Loses Opening Match at Eastern Championship
No. 10 Indiana 11, George Washington 4
April 30, 2005
BLOOMINGTON, IN - George Washington (13-15) lost its opening match of the 2005 CWPA Eastern Championship on Saturday, April 30. The eighth-seeded Colonials fell, 11-4, to the tournament's top seed, No. 10 Indiana (23-9), at the Counsilman-Billingsley Aquatic Center. The defeat eliminates any chance GW had of winning the Eastern Championship and earning its automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The nationally-ranked Hoosiers used a six-goal run to take control of the match after GW sophomore Morgan Hooker gave the Colonials a 1-0 lead with her team-leading 43rd goal of the season with 5:35 to play in the opening period. Indiana scored three times in the first quarter, including consecutive tallies by Clare Meadows to grab a 3-1 advantage after one quarter. Janice Pardy and Kandace Waldthaler notched second-period goals at 4:36 and 1:57, respectively, to put Indiana in front, 5-1, at the half.
Waldthaler scored again to open the third period before goals by freshman Soleil Roberts and senior captain Kendra Shanley cut the Colonials' deficit to three, 6-3. That's as close as GW would get as Indiana reeled off five of the game's final six scores to produce the winning margin.
Hooker finished with two goals in the match, while GW junior Amy Heinemann and freshman Julie Jacoby combined to make seven saves in the cage. Sophomore Jenna Burnett registered two assists in the contest.
Waldthaler paced the Hoosiers with three scores, while Meadows and Bridget McKeon each scored twice. Jessica Goldner made four saves for Indiana.
The Colonials will meet the loser of the Hartwick/Harvard match at 4:00 CST on Saturday.
