GW Men's Soccer, James Madison Play to 1-1 Draw in Preseason Finale
Sophomore Garrett Heine Scores for Colonials
Aug. 23, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team played James Madison to a 1-1 draw in the final exhibition match of the preseason for both teams on Saturday evening at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Josh Grant and Tom Fouhy teamed up to give JMU an early 1-0 lead when Fouhy sent a cross from the far end line into the top of the box and Grant curled it inside the right post in the fifth minute.
It took the Colonials less than seven minutes to tie it up, as sophomore Garrett Heine headed the ball under the crossbar following a corner kick for the equalizer in the 12th minute.
Neither team found the back of the net again, and the game ended in a 1-1 tie after 90 minutes as the teams agreed to no overtime prior to the game due to a 105-minute delay.
The Dukes outshot the Colonials, 9-6, but GW held a 6-5 advantage in corner kicks. Junior goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe made two saves in the game, while Kyle Morton and Bill Groben each played 45 minutes for the Dukes, with Groben making his team's lone save in the second half.
The Colonials open the regular season next weekend at the Kuykenstrong D.C. College Cup hosted by American University. GW will take on the host Eagles on Friday at 5 p.m.
