Men's Soccer Topped in Tussle With Saint Francis, 2-1
Freshman Frank Ambrosio Scores First Collegiate Goal in Loss
Sept. 15, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington men's soccer lost a penalty-plagued match that saw a total of seven cards issued, to the visiting Saint Francis Red Flash, 2-1 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
The Colonials (2-3) fell behind in the 27th minute after SFU (3-3) scored on a cross by sophomore defender Gary Burke which fellow sophomore Ed Hayden placed past a GW's keeper, freshman Derek Biss.
The Colonials struck back in the 39th minute when senior forward Matt Osborne made a long pass into the box to freshman midfielder Mike Higgins who made a quick touch pass to freshman forward Frank Ambrosio who netted his first collegiate score.
After both teams headed into the break tied at 1-1, the Colonials and Red Flash fought a physical battle that culminated in two ejections and six total second-half cards.
SFU scored what would be the winning goal in the 65th minute when sophomore Sheu Fortunato made pinpoint cross into the mouth of the goal which freshman forward Omari Aldridge put into the back of the net.
The Colonials played the bulk of the game without their leading scorer, Arnar Johannsson who went down with an injury midway through the first half.
GW hits the road for a four-game stretch, beginning with a 2:00 p.m. match at Monmouth on Wednesday, September 18.
