GW Plays Rhode Island to 1-1 Stalemate
Chapman Notches Third Goal of the Season
Oct. 8, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington men's soccer team (1-6-3, 0-1-2 Atlantic 10) recorded its second consecutive tie, playing defending A-10 champion Rhode Island (6-4-1, 1-1-1 Atlantic 10) to a 1-1 double overtime stalemate on Friday, Oct. 8 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
Friday's match was the third tie for GW in 10 games, two shy of the school record of five stalemates set in 1984 and 1990.
Rhode Island controlled the tempo of the match in the beginning of the first half, but the tide turned midway through the period as the Colonials generated some scoring opportunities and GW outshot the Rams, 8-1, in the stanza.
GW took a 1-0 edge in the second half when freshman Greg McKay made a pass from the midfield to junior Jon Allen in the box. Allen's shot was stopped by Rhode Island goalkeeper Dean Ruddy, but junior Andre Chapman was there to knock home the rebound at 47:12.
GW's lead didn't last long as Rhode Island's Sasha Gotsmanov headed a Dawid Badecki free kick into the net 3:40 later to tie the match, 1-1, at 50:52. The Colonials had two chances to tally the golden goal in regulation, but Ruddy made a sprawling save on a shot by sophomore Arturo Pedroso with 11:27 remaining, and a header by junior Frank Ambrosio in the 81st minute just missed the net.
The Colonials also recorded the best scoring chance of either team in overtime when Allen received a pass in the box from Chapman with under a minute left in the second extra session, but couldn't get off a shot.
Chapman's tally was his third of the season, tying him with Allen for the team lead. McKay notched an assist on the play, the first helper of his career.
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss made two saves for GW, while Ruddy finished with four for the Rams.
The Colonials will host Atlantic 10 opponent Massachusetts at 1:00 on Sunday, Oct. 10 at Mount Vernon.
