GW Men's Soccer Stays Unbeaten in A-10 Play on Painter's Golden Goal
Sophomore Scores in Double Overtime at URI After Adewole's Last-Minute Equalizer
Oct. 25, 2013
KINGSTON, R.I. - Sophomore Eddie Painter's golden goal in the fifth minute of double overtime lifted the George Washington men's soccer team to dramatic a 2-1 victory over Atlantic 10 rival Rhode Island on a chilly Friday evening at the URI Soccer Complex.
With the win, GW remains unbeaten in Atlantic 10 play, improving to 5-6-2 overall and 2-0-2 against league opponents.
Rhode Island (2-9-0, 0-3-0 A-10) got on the board first just 10 minutes in when Matt Sykes set up Adam Camillo with a ball that Camillo rocketed into the upper right corner for a 1-0 lead that held up through halftime.
The Colonials controlled possession in the second half with a 9-3 shot advantage in the period, and with just 43 seconds left in regulation, senior Bailey Hinners - who has forced overtime twice this season with goals of his own - sent a ball through the box to freshman Tobi Adewole, who headed it home to knot the game at 1-1 with his first career goal.
Neither team had any significant chances in the first extra session. Then in the 105th minute Adewole caused a turnover in the midfield and played a long pass to Painter, who collected it on a bounce, faked out a URI defender and fired a shot off the underside of the crossbar from 10 yards out for the first goal of his career and the game-winner.
Junior goalkeeper Luke Farrell recorded four saves, while Thomas Spenser stopped nine shots for URI as GW matched its season high with 18 shots in the game.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday when they visit Atlantic 10 rival Massachusetts for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
