GW Men's Soccer Shuts Down Howard, 2-0
Colonials Earn First Win of 2013 Behind Goals From Forrest, Ranalli
Sep 1, 2013
FAIRFAX, Va. - The George Washington men's soccer team scored a goal in each half while holding Howard without a shot on goal as the Colonials defeated the Bison, 2-0, to earn their first win of the season at the D.C. College Cup on Sunday evening at George Mason Stadium.
Sophomore Jonny Forrest and senior Tyler Ranalli each tallied a goal and an assist in the game, while freshman Garrett Heine recorded the first two points of his collegiate career with an assist on each score. Sophomore goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe earned his second career shutout and first since Sept. 9, 2012.
In the 21st minute, Heine sent a pass from the near corner to Ranalli, who relayed it to Forrest in front of the corner of the net, and Forrest punched it in from five yards out to give GW a 1-0 lead. The goal was the first of Forrest's career.
The trio teamed up again early in the second half. This time, Forrest passed the ball to Heine, who kicked it out to Ranalli, and Ranalli put the ball in the net from 10 yards out to make it 2-0 in the 48th minute.
The Colonials outshot the Bison, 11-3, including 7-0 in the first half, but corner kicks were even at five apiece. Howard goalie Eric Hamilton stopped two shots, while van der Merwe was not forced to make a save.
The Colonials return to action on Friday, when they visit LIU Brooklyn at 6 p.m.
