Men's Soccer Drops Home Opener
Colonials score first but lose to William & Mary
WASHINGTON - Oscar Haynes Brown's first career goal wasn't enough for George Washington men's soccer in a 2-1 loss to William & Mary on Tuesday afternoon at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
The Colonials (1-3) went ahead in the 70th minute on the freshman from England's breakaway goal from Drini Redzepi, but the Tribe (2-1-1) hit back with scores from William Eskay and Ryder Bell in the final 17 minutes to spoil GW's home opener.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
- 70th Minute -- Both teams had a handful of promising chances before GW finally broke through. Redzepi threaded a beautiful pass to Haynes Brown, who took a touch around the goalkeeper and fired a shot into the open net. (GW 1, William & Mary 0)
- 74th Minute -- William & Mary quickly found the equalizer with Eskay pounding home Marcel Berry's cross from close range. (GW 1, William & Mary 1)
- 82nd Minute -- The Tribe converted GW's turnover into the go-ahead goal. Antonio Bustamante picked off a pass and found Bell with space near the top of the 18-yard box. The junior forward managed to get off his shot just before the defense recovered.
