WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Siena College Saints benefited from three extra-man goals and a five-meter penalty goal in the first quarter and never trailed in handing the George Washington University Colonials a 13-11 loss at Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
Trailing 9-6 in the second quarter, freshman Katherine Berry brought GW within 9-7 at intermission with a man-up tally just before halftime, then junior Allison Peotter scored and assisted senior Erin Delker to make it 9-9 with 1:06 left in the third quarter.
However, Siena (7-10), which got a game-high six goals from leading scorer Camille Norman, broke the deadlock on Devan Ragg's goal with 22 seconds left in the third period and Nicole Hagi's power-play clinching touch-in with 34 seconds remaining gave the Saints a 13-11 lead.
The Colonials called timeout in an effort to set up a play to close within a goal, but Saints goalkeeper Stephani Pouder made one of her seven saves and Siena ran off the final seconds for the victory. GW finished just 1-of-8 on extra-man opportunities, while Siena converted 5-of-10 chances.
Peotter scored in each quarter and added three assists for a team-high seven points. Junior Megan Walker and freshman Rachael Bentley scored twice, while Berry finished with two points on a goal and assist. Rookie Adina Zepfel added the Colonials' other goal. Senior goalkeeper Charlotte Schou made four saves and added two assists.
