GW Wins Fourth Straight, Defeats Temple, 1-0
Junior Steve Brown Scores Game-Winner in 77th Minute
Oct. 29, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The GW men's soccer team (5-8-3, 4-3-2 Atlantic 10) won its fourth straight A-10 match, shutting out Temple, 1-0 on Friday, Oct. 29 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The victory gives GW 14 points in the league standings and ties the Colonials for fifth-place, pending the results of Friday's A-10 contests.
The Colonials are angling for one of six bids in the 2004 Atlantic 10 Championship Tournament, which they will host from Nov. 11-14.
Junior Steve Brown netted the only goal of Friday's match when he danced around an Owls' defender and bent a shot just inside the far post from 25 yards out at 77:20. The tally was his first of the season and the third of his career.
Temple (8-7-2, 5-2-2 Atlantic 10) scrambled to tally the equalizer, but GW's defense was able to keep the Owls off the scoreboard for the final 12:40 to record the victory.
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss made one save and played all 90 minutes for GW to earn the fifth shutout of his career and his second blanking this season. Goalkeeper Patrick Hannigan made two saves in the contest for the Owls.
The Owls' Ryan Heins, Nate Webb, and Stephen Bristow recorded two shots each, combining for six of Temple's eight shots attempts.
GW's four-game winning streak is the longest since the squad posted four consecutive triumphs in October of 2002.
The Colonials play their final home regular-season match on Sunday, Oct. 31 versus Saint Joseph's at 1:00 p.m.
