Two Late Goals Lift GW Men's Soccer Past Montgomery College, 2-1
McQuitty, Valencia Record Tallies in Exhibition Win
Aug 20, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team scored twice in the second half to rally for a 2-1 comeback victory over Montgomery College in an exhibition match on Tuesday afternoon at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
After a scoreless opening half, the Raptors got on the board first early in the second half when Nick Castro sent a free kick into the box that Mohammad Oulare headed into the lower-left corner in the 48th minute.
GW tied it up on a bang-bang play in the 70th minute when sophomore Jonny Forrest's free kick found the head of freshman Tobi Adewole in front of the net. The ball ricocheted to McQuitty, who headed it into the goal to knot the score at 1-1.
The Colonials appeared poised to take the lead about seven minutes later when they were awarded a free kick just outside the box. Senior Abdul Shaban blasted a shot that went just wide of the far upper corner.
With five minutes left in regulation, senior Tyler Ranalli's pass found classmate Bailey Hinners in front of the net. Hinners' shot was saved by MC goalie Bogdan Svitin, but the rebound found freshman Angel Valencia, who fired it past Svitin from the far side for the game-winner.
Sophomore goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe recorded one save in 90 minutes, while Svitin stopped four shots for the Raptors.
GW outshot MC, 18-7, including 11-4 in the second half, and held a 4-0 advantage on corner kicks.
The Colonials conclude their preseason slate on Saturday, when they visit James Madison for an exhibition at 5 p.m.
