The Temple Owls Women’s Lacrosse team (1-0) opened their season with a no doubt about opening day win over George Washington (0-1).
An offensive showing with no less than ten goal scorers paced an opening day victory at Howarth Field on the campus of Temple University.
The Lady Owls stormed out to a 3-0 lead and never looked back.
GW tried to challenge but was overmatched by the offensive onslaught which led to a 10-5 halftime lead.
Temple ripped off a four-goal run thanks to Olivia Thompson (4g), Gabrielle Kirsch (2g), a second from Thompson and, finally, Maddie Gebert (3g) to push a 4-2 edge to an 8-2 advantage that was too much for the Colonials to counter.
GW was able it get it within striking range early in the second half with a 10-6 disadvantage before the home team pulled off another run, this one for five, fueled by Bridget Whitaker (2g,2a), Thompson, Meghan Hoffman (1g,3a), Gebert and Jackie Cericho (1g) to put it out of reach.
