Aug. 31, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team scored four unanswered goals in the second half, including three in 10 minutes, to earn its first victory of the season, 4-1, over District rival Howard on the second day of the Kuykenstrong D.C. College Cup at American University's Reeves Field.
The Bison (0-2-0) got on the scoreboard first when Emmanuel Iledare found Austin Williams in the box, and Williams finished from 10 yards out in the 27th minute.
Howard took its 1-0 lead into halftime, but junior Jonny Forrest and sophomore Spiros Tsakos teamed up to begin the Colonials' scoring barrage in the 64th minute, as Forrest's header in the box from 10 yards out found the inside of the left post for the equalizer.
Sophomore Garrett Heine gave GW the lead less than four minutes later when he buried a rebound from four yards out for his first career goal. Freshman Christian Lawal was credited with the assist on the original shot, his first collegiate point.
GW (1-1-0) continued its offensive outburst in the 74th minute as junior Ross Higgins' shot was blocked, but senior Farhan Khan scored off the rebound for a 3-1 lead. Higgins and Heine were each credited with assists on the play.
Sophomore Angel Valencia concluded the scoring in the 88th minute as he ran behind the defense and finished a pass from Heine from eight yards out for the 4-1 win.
Heine finished the day with four points on a goal and two assists and was named to the Kuykenstrong D.C. College Cup All-Tournament Team along with Forrest.
Junior goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe stopped two shots in the win, while Eric Hamilton made seven saves for the Bison. GW outshot Howard, 20-10, including 14-4 in the second half, and held a 9-5 advantage on corner kicks.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday, Sept. 7, when they host Harvard at 1 p.m. in their home opener at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
