GW Loses Conference Opener to La Salle, 2-1
Freshman Greg McKay Tallies First Career Goal
Oct. 1, 2004
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Freshman Greg McKay netted his first collegiate goal, but it wasn't enough as the GW men's soccer team (1-6-1, 0-1-0 Atlantic 10) lost its Atlantic 10 opener to La Salle, 2-1, on Friday, Oct. 1 at McCarthy Stadium.
McKay made his second career start in the contest and paced the George Washington offense with five shots.
With no score in the match, GW freshman Matt Davis got the ball to junior Steve Brown who sent a cross into the box that McKay drilled home to give the Colonials a 1-0 lead at 14:28. Brown recorded his third assist of season on the play and now has 15 for his career, tying him with Kenny Emson for 10th on GW's career assists chart.
The Colonials outshot the Explorers, 8-3, in the first half and maintained a one-goal edge until La Salle's Andrew Perez knotted the match, 1-1, off a corner kick at the 47:24 mark. After a defensive stop in the 66th minute, La Salle's Kevin Coleman served a ball over the GW defense to Josh France, who beat junior goalkeeper Derek Biss for the game-winner at 66:46.
GW outshot La Salle, 15-10, while the Explorers (5-2-1, 1-0-0 Atlantic 10) held a 7-5 advantage in corner kicks.
Biss finished with three saves for the Colonials, while Stash Graham made nine stops in goal for the Explorers.
The Colonials will be back in action on Sunday, Oct. 3 when they play at league rival Fordham at 1:00 p.m.
