Final Stats

WASHINGTON - Oscar Haynes Brown scored for the third straight game in George Washington men's soccer's 1-1 draw with UMBC on Saturday afternoon at GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.

The freshman from England put the Colonials (2-3-1) on top in the 19th minute, nodding home Christian Lawal's header off the post. After Gregg Hauck equalized for UMBC (4-1-1) in the 56th minute, both defenses held strong through the remainder of regulation and 20 minutes of scoreless overtime.

GW goalkeeper Thor Arne Höfs stayed busy, setting a career high with nine saves. Ciaran O'Loughlin made five stops for the Retrievers.

HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • 19th Minute -- Haynes Brown continues to show his knack for putting the ball in the goal. Lawal's header off Colin Anderson's long throw-in skipped off the left post and right to Haynes Brown, who used his head to pop it into the open net. (GW 1, UMBC 0)
  • 56th Minute -- UMBC's game-tying goal came off a similar set piece. Tom Paul's header off a Colin Weyant free kick found Hauck, who flicked it with his head past Höfs. (GW 1, UMBC 1)

NOTEWORTHY:

  • Höfs came up with several challenging saves to keep the game tied. In the 68th minute, the junior keeper tipped Kyle Saunderson's header off the crossbar and then got help from Joshua Yurasits to clear away the loose ball. He made two stops in overtime, including a sliding catch in the second extra frame to deny Matt Bailey's low drive.

  •  

     

  • UMBC outshot GW, 23-16, for the game, including 4-1 in overtime.
  • It was the first overtime game of the season for the Colonials, who went to the extra period in six of their 18 matches in 2016. Höfs, Yurasits, Ben Ogedegbe, Reese Moore and Simon Fitch played all 110 minutes.
  • Anderson was credited with his first career point for heaving the long throw into the box that created Haynes Brown's goal.
  • Lawal picked up an assist for the second game in a row. The senior now has 27 career points.
