Colonials Snap 10-Game Winless Streak with Victory at St. Bonaventure
Allen Notches Personal-Best Goals Versus Bonnies
Oct. 17, 2004
ST. BONAVENTURE, NY - Junior Jon Allen tallied a career-high two goals as the GW men's soccer team (2-8-3, 1-3-2) broke its 10-game winless streak with a 3-1 triumph at A-10 rival St. Bonaventure (6-6-1, 2-4-0) on Sunday, Oct. 17 at McGraw-Jennings Field.
Allen scored in the 13th and 72nd minutes against the Bonnies, marking the first time in a Colonials' uniform he scored twice in a match. The tallies were his team-leading fourth and fifth goals of the season and he now has 14 total points for the campaign.
St. Bonaventure's Andy Garcia netted the Bonnies' only goal of game with 11 minutes to play, but that's as close as they would get as GW's defense clamped down for the remainder of the contest to record its first Atlantic 10 victory of the season.
Junior Ben Mortimer gave the Colonials a 1-0 edge when he converted a penalty kick at 10:48. With the momentum on their side, the Colonials took a 2-0 lead 2:49 later on Allen's first tally of the match. Senior co-captain Matt Miller recorded an assist on Allen's goal, his second of the season and the sixth of his career. In the second half, Allen received a pass from Andre Chapman and beat a St. Bonaventure defender to notch his second goal of the contest and put the game out of reach at 72:06
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss made three saves in the game to earn his second win of the season. Sean Eyde stopped four shots in goal for the Bonnies.
GW outshot the Bonnies, 13-9, in a physical game that had a combined total of 41 fouls and six cards issued.
The victory was the second straight for the Colonials against St. Bonaventure. GW defeated the Bonnies, 3-1, in 2003.
The Colonials begin a four-game homestand on Friday, Oct. 22 when they host A-10 foe Xavier at 3:00 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
