Men's Soccer Loses to San Francisco, 3-1
Johannsson Scores Colonials' Lone Goal
Sept. 18, 2003
SANTA CLARA, CA - George Washington men's soccer dropped their first match at the Adidas Classic in Santa Clara, CA, falling 3-1 to the San Francisco Dons.
GW (1-5) was held scoreless for the majority of the match as the Dons (3-4) denied 10 of the Colonials' 11 shots for the game. GW's single score came with just three seconds left in the match when senior Arnar Johannsson converted a penalty kick off a San Francisco foul in the box.
While the Colonials fell to a 1-5 record, they have only lost by a single score in four of the five games. The 3-1 score is GW's first loss of the season by multiple goals.
The Dons scored one first half goal when a loose ball slipped by GW's Derek Biss to put San Francisco up 1-0 in the 32nd minute of play. The score was credited to USF's Ben Stuart with assists to Gabe Sturm and Chris Schwarze.
The Dons would add two more scores in the second half, extending their lead just four minutes into the second period when Kounalakis headed home a crss from Stacey Kodani.
The Dons would use their heads again to score in the 76th minute of play when Aaron Chandler headed a corner kick by Josh Hansen to Jonathan Povey, who in turn headed past Biss to give USF a 3-0 lead.
The Colonials take on host Santa Clara in their second match of the Adidas Classic on Saturday, September 20, at 10:00 p.m. EST.
