GW Snaps Losing Streak, Ties Fordham, 1-1
Junior Jon Allen Scores Team-Leading Third Goal
Oct. 3, 2004
BRONX, NY - The George Washington men's soccer team (1-6-2) snapped its five-match losing streak on Sunday, Oct. 3, tying Atlantic 10 rival Fordham, 1-1, in double overtime on Edwards' Parade.
Fordham (2-5-2) grabbed an early 1-0 lead on Sunday, when Shaun Moamem outmaneuvered two GW defenders and scored 7:50 into the contest. The Rams maintained their one-goal edge until the 52:45 mark, when junior Jon Allen headed a pass by junior Andre Chapman past Fordham keeper Stephen Faber to square the game, 1-1. Neither team was able to notch the golden goal in final 42:15 of regulation and both teams had scoring chances in the extra periods, but the match ended in a stalemate.
Allen's tally was his team-leading third goal of the year. Sophomore Arturo Pedroso also picked up an assist on the scoring play, his first in a Colonials uniform.
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss played all 110 minutes for GW and made his only save of the match in overtime. Faber made six stops in goal for the Rams.
GW controlled the pace of the match, outshooting Fordham, 11-4. The Colonials also held a 6-3 edge in corner kicks.
GW freshman John Jaszczyszyn saw his first career minutes in the contest and took one shot.
The Colonials are 4-1-1 against the Rams in the last six meetings between the two schools.
GW returns home for a clash with defending A-10 champion Rhode Island on Friday, Oct. 8 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The match is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
