Oct. 28, 2012
ST. LOUIS - The George Washington men's soccer team suffered a 5-0 loss to No. 20 Saint Louis on Sunday afternoon in Atlantic 10 Conference action at the Billikens' Robert R. Hermann Stadium.
Jon Roeckle opened the scoring for Saint Louis in the 11th minute on a corner kick. David Graydon sent the ball to Marco Heskamp, who found Roeckle outside the top of the box. Roeckle sent a drive through traffic and it found the back of the net in the bottom right corner.
Nick Maglasang made it 2-0 in the 17th minute on a buildup on the right side. Robbie Kristo gave it to Heskamp, who fed Maglasang, and his shot snuck just inside the near post. Kristo tallied the Billikens' third goal of the half in the 33rd minute, as he took possession on a turnover in the center circle, outraced a GW defender and fired past GW redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe for a 3-0 advantage.
The score remained the same until the 82nd minute, when Adnan Gabeljic raced up the left flank on a pass from Christian Briggs and shot toward the far post for a 4-0 Saint Louis lead. Then, with just 81 seconds left, Gabeljic sent a pass in from the right side, and Jonathan Svigos' touch eluded van der Merwe for the 5-0 final.
The Billikens (12-4-0, 6-2-0 A-10) outshot the Colonials (5-12-0, 2-6-0 A-10) 18-5 in the match and held a 7-0 advantage on corner kicks. Junior Tyler Ranalli took four of GW's five shots, but freshman Philip McQuitty had the only attempt on target, which SLU goalie Nick Shackleford saved in the 21st minute. Van der Merwe recorded four saves for GW.
The Colonials conclude the 2012 season on Saturday, when they visit No. 22 Charlotte for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
