Men's Soccer Blanks Temple, 3-0
Lund Records Third Shutout of the Season
Oct. 20, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - Junior goalkeeper Eric Lund (Wasilla, AK/Bradenton Academy (FL)) made six saves on 12 Temple shots, as the Colonials won their fourth match in a row, 3-0 over the Owls.
GW (8-6-0, 4-2-0) combined solid defense and relentless offensive pressure to shut down TU (5-10-0, 2-5-0) as the Colonials displayed a strong team effort that resulted in eight separate players contributing on the three scores.
The Colonials got on the board just five minutes into the match when freshman Steve Brown (Stony Point, NY/North Rockland) launched a corner kick across TU's box to junior back Trent Wilee (Chesapeake, VA/Great Bridge) sent a pass into the mouth of the goal where senior midfielder Matthew Osborne (Bingham, Notts, Eng./Toothill Comprehensive) one-timed a shot past the Owls' keeper Pat Hannigan for the 1-0 lead.
GW held the one-goal lead deep into the second half as the two teams traded shots through the majority of the period. Senior Kirk Lewis (Beltsville, MD/St. John's) finally broke the scoring drought in the 77th minute with a nifty move in the box that shook his defender and allowed him to score from point-blank range. Lewis received the pass from freshman midfielder Frank Ambrosio (Orlando, FL/Bishop Moore) who beat his defender on the left wing after junior back Justin Evans (Worthington, OH/Thomas Worthington) fed him with a long lead pass.
The Colonials tacked on the third goal of the day in the 82nd minute when junior forward Arnar Johannsson (Reykjavik, Iceland/C.C. of Iceland) touched a pass forward to Lewis who hit the streaking Michael Goldman (Bethesda, MD/Bethesda-Chevy Chase) in the box. The senior midfielder ripped a shot past the keeper into the lower right corner of the goal.
The Colonials swept all four teams on this homestand, and now hit the road to take on Fordham on Friday, October 25, in a 7:00 p.m. match.
