Men's Soccer Drops 4-0 Decision at Navy
GW Will Host Rider Saturday During Alumni Weekend
Sept. 29, 2010
ANNAPOLIS, MD - George Washington men's soccer played regionally ranked Navy to a scoreless draw through 45 minutes, but the Colonials were reduced to 10 players and surrendered four goals in the second half en route to a 4-0 loss to the Midshipmen at Glenn Warner Soccer Facility Wednesday evening.
GW (1-7-0) will look to snap its five-match losing skid and break a 395-minute scoreless drought when it hosts Rider at Mount Vernon Field Saturday at 2:00 pm.
Both the Colonials men's and women's soccer teams will welcome back former players during their annual Alumni Weekend. The annual Alumni Game will be held at Mount Vernon Saturday from 10-11:30 am, followed by a Alumni and Varsity Players Reception at State Plaza Hotel (2117 E St. NW) from 6:30-8:30 pm.
Navy (6-1-0), which entered the match ranked second in the NSCAA/HendrickCars.com Middle Atlantic region poll, got goals from Dave Arnold in the 48th and 51st minutes, Alex Wilson in the 81st and Will Parker in the 85th to improve to 4-0-0 at home this season. The final three goals were scored after the Colonials were reduced to 10 men following sophomore Daniel Ripperger-Suhler's ejection for a second yellow card in the 50th minute.
GW controlled the run of play in the early going, outshooting Navy, 4-1, over the opening 15 minutes. The Mids reversed momentum midway through the period and outshot the Colonials, 6-1, the rest of the half, but neither team could break through.
The Mids dominated the second half, netting all four of their goals and holding an 18-5 edge in shots and 7-0 advantage in corner kicks. For the match, Navy held a 25-10 margin in shots (9-1 shots on goal) and 8-1 cushion in corners.
Senior goalkeeper Erik Haug made five saves in his second match since rejoining the team, while his counterpart Aaron Dupere was forced to make just one save - on sophomore Mattia Melillo's breakaway attempt in the 89th minute.
