GW Men's Soccer Tallies Two Unanswered to Defeat Howard, 2-1
Hinners, Ranalli Named to D.C. College Cup All-Tournament Team
Sept. 1, 2012
WASHINGTON - Junior Bailey Hinners' first career goal proved to be the game-winner, as the George Washington men's soccer team scored two unanswered goals to defeat District rival Howard, 2-1, on the second day of the D.C. College Cup at American University's Reeves Field.
The Bison (0-4-0) struck first just 8:13 in, when Vincent Johnson's cross from the left found Frederick Todd III, who buried his shot in the left corner for a 1-0 lead.
But GW (2-1-0) tied it in the 24th minute, as sophomore Joe Holleran and junior Tyler Ranalli teamed up for the second time this season, with Ranalli putting the ball in the upper-right corner of the net following a breakaway down the left side.
The score remained knotted at 1-1 at halftime, but Hinners put the Colonials on top in the 69th minute, blasting a shot from 40 yards out into the top-right corner of the net for the eventual game-winner.
Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe made two saves in his first career start, while Howard keeper Eric Hamilton stopped four shots. GW outshot the Bison, 10-7, and held a 7-5 advantage on corner kicks.
Following the game, Hinners and Ranalli were both named to the D.C. College Cup All-Tournament Team.
The Colonials return to action next weekend, when they travel to Lexington, Va., for the Jay Sculley Memorial Tournament on the campus of VMI. GW will face the host Keydets on Friday at 4 p.m. and Liberty on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
