Colonials Tie Radford, 1-1, in Two Overtimes
Junior Jon Allen Notches His Second Goal of the Year
Sept. 11, 2004
RADFORD, VA - The George Washington men's soccer team (1-1-1) tied Radford, 1-1, in double overtime on Saturday, September 11, at Cupp Memorial Stadium. Junior Jon Allen tallied GW's only goal of the match, his second score of the season.
The Colonials got on the scoreboard first when freshman Matt Davis delivered a pass to junior Frank Ambrosio in the box. Ambrosio sent a cross towards the Radford net, which Allen headed past Highlander goalkeeper Omar Zinoveev at the 19:38 mark to give the GW a 1-0 lead. Davis recorded an assist on the play for his first collegiate point.
The score remained 1-0 until the second half, when the Highlanders (1-0-2) knotted the score on a Patrick Colas tally at 50:09.
Both teams had chances the rest of the way, but neither squad was able to score the game-winner. The Colonials outshot Radford, 3-1, in the two overtime periods, but to no avail.
Junior Derek Biss played all 120 minutes in goal for GW and made seven saves. Zinoveev finished with four stops for Radford.
Junior Trevor Martin picked up his second yellow card at 42:46, forcing the Colonials to play a man down for the rest of the contest.
Radford held a 10-9 advantage in shots, while the Colonials edged the Highlanders, 9-7, in corner kicks.
The game marked the first tie for GW since it battled Richmond to a 1-1 stalemate in the 2003 regular-season finale.
The Colonials will meet cross-town rival American on Wednesday, September 15 at 3:00 p.m. at Reeves Field.
