GW Upends Dayton, 3-1
Colonials Rally for Three Second-Half Goals
Oct. 24, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials (4-8-3, 3-3-2 Atlantic 10) scored three times in the second half to overcome a one-goal deficit and upset Atlantic 10 leader Dayton, 3-1, on Sunday, Oct. 24 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The victory was the third straight conference win for GW, which now has 11 points and is squarely in the mix for a berth in the league's championship tournament.
Junior Frank Ambrosio notched his second and third goals of the season with tallies in the 64th and 73rd minutes and junior Ben Mortimer clinched the win when he converted on a penalty kick chance at 82:08.
GW controlled the pace of play in the second part of the first half, but the Flyers (8-6-1, 5-3-0 Atlantic 10) opened the game's scoring when Omar Jarun dove and sent a header into the Colonials' net off a free kick with 51 seconds left in the first stanza.
GW evened the match, 1-1, in the second half when Ambrosio headed one past Flyers' keeper Steve Ladislaw at 64:29. Junior Trevor Martin and freshman Thomas Stuber recorded assists on the play. The helper marked the first career point for Stuber.
Ambrosio put the Colonials in front 9:18 later when he booted one past Ladislaw at 73:47 after junior Jon Allen's shot was blocked by the Dayton defense. Mortimer sealed the triumph with his second penalty kick goal of the year at 82:08 after Ladislaw was ejected for a foul in the box.
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss made four saves to record the win, while Ladislaw made two stops for the Flyers.
GW's defense held Dayton to just seven shots in the match, while the Colonials took 13.
The Colonials will host a pair of critical A-10 matches next weekend. GW will take on Temple on Friday, Oct. 29 at 3:00 and meet Saint Joseph's on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 1:00 p.m.
