Against Redlands, GW fell behind 1-0 in the first quarter, but the Colonials answered with a goal of their own to tie the score, 1-1, at the half. The Bulldogs took control of the match in the third stanza, scoring four times and tacking on another goal in the fourth quarter to clinch a 6-3 triumph.
