Men's Soccer Blasts Hawks, 5-1
Johannsson Scores Two to Lead Colonials
Oct. 18, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC -Junior forward Arnar Johannsson (Reykjavik, Iceland/C.C. of Iceland) scored two goals, including the game-winner to lead the Colonials past the visiting Saint Joseph's Hawks, 5-1 as George Washington extended its season high win-streak to three games.
SJU (7-6-0, 2-4-0) got on the scoreboard first with an early goal just one minute into regulation. The Hawks' Kevin Schmidt scored his first goal of the season when teammate Adam Duffy made a pinpoint pass into the box off a free kick.
GW (7-6-0, 3-2-0) recovered quickly, scoring in the15th minute when freshman midfielder Steve Brown (Stony Point, NY/North Rockland) led senior Michael Goldman (Chevy Chase, MD/Bethesda-Chevy Chase) with a pass that Goldman took through the defense, blasting a shot past SJU's keeper, Kevin Dougher, for the tying score.
Johannsson's first goal of the match would prove to be the game-winner, when Brown placed a cross from the right wing through the box, which senior captain Matthew Osborne (Bingham, Notts, England/Toothill Comprehensive) redirected to Johannsson who put it between the pipes for the 2-1 lead at the 24:44 mark.
Johannsson added another score in the 42nd minute off a rebound from an Osborne shot on goal. Dougher denied Osborne's first shot with a diving save, but the rebound landed at Johannsson feet for the easy score.
Osborne recorded his third assist of the day when he made a beautiful pass in traffic to junior forward Fabio Andrade (Stoughton, MA/Xaverian Brothers) who in turn, faked out his defender, and placed his shot in the back of the net.
GW's fifth goal was scored by junior midfielder Jeremy Catlin (Clarksville, MD/Oakland Mills) when freshmen Trevor Martin (Chevy Chase, MD/Bethesda-Chevy Chase) and Adam Smith (Pueblo, CO/East HS) made a pair of passes through the box to Catlin, who put a shot into the left corner past SJU's keeper.
GW has won the first three home matches in their four-game home stand, which comes to a conclusion on Sunday, October 20, when they host Temple in a 1:00 p.m. match at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
