Men's Soccer Shut Out By Towson, 4-0
Tigers' Three-Goal Second-Half Dooms Colonials
Sept. 26, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington men's soccer fell to Towson in a rain-soaked match that saw the Tigers score three second-half goals on the way to a 4-0 shutout of the Colonials.
After GW (4-4) and Towson (4-2-1) battled to a stalemate for the majority of the first half, TU senior Danny Skelton gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead late in the first half when he scored off a pass from fellow senior Machel Millwood with 7:35 left in the half.
The Colonials would fall behind by another goal in the second half when Millwood gave the Tigers a 2-0 lead at 57:03 as he scored on a fast break off a pass by senior Ade Elliott. Millwood, who was part of all four Tiger goals, assisted on a goal by TU senior Randy Tolson at 79:35 for a 3-0 lead.
Millwood scored his second goal of the match in the waning moments of the match, when he scored off a pass from freshman Shaun Bounds.
The Colonials lost despite placing 11 of their 13 shots on net, as Towson's keeper, Andy Hicks, recorded his third shutout of the season. GW returns to action on Friday, October 4 when they travel to Olean, NY to take on St. Bonaventure in their conference opener in a 3:00 p.m. match.
