Men's Soccer Falls Short in Shootout, 4-3
Seniors Catlin and Andrade Tally Three Points Each in Loss
Oct. 12, 2003
WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Washington men's soccer was unable to complete a second half rally, falling to the visiting Duquesne Dukes 4-3 in a rematch of last season's Atlantic 10 Championship Final.
GW (4-8-0, 2-2-0) topped the Dukes in their last meeting to take the 2002 conference crown, but could not beat a hot DU team that improved to 8-1-2, 3-0-1 in the Atlantic 10.
Duquesne, who had only allowed four goals on the season entering the match, got on the board first when Jason Sourbeer put home a cross by Matt Mehler in the eighth minute of play. GW responded nine minutes later with an outstanding score from freshman Frank Ambrosio who headed in a cross from senior Fabio Andrade off a long serve to the wing from senior Justin Evans.
DU reclaimed the lead in the 26th minute, when Noah Salsi found the back of the net off a cross from Steve Mellor to give the Dukes the 2-1 edge. The visitors would take the lead into the break, as both DU's and GW's defenses held for the balance of the half.
The Dukes would extend their lead to 4-1 with a pair of early second half goals. Derek Freund beat GW's keeper Derek Biss off a cross from the right wing from Sourbeer to give DU the 3-1 edge. Sourbeer would add the next score himself, beating the defense and winning one-on-one versus Biss.
Catlin also would play a role in GW's third and final goal of the day less than five minutes later, when he and Andrade beat DU's defense on a give-and-go. Andrade netted his second score of the season when he beat the Duquesne keeper with a shot to the lower right corner of the goal.
GW travels to Ohio next week to take on Dayton on Friday, October 17, in a 7:30 pm match.
