Colonials Extend Winning Streak to Five
Oct. 31, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington men's soccer team (6-8-3, 5-3-2 Atlantic 10) extended its season-best winning streak to five games with a 2-0 shutout versus Saint Joseph's (3-13-1, 2-6-1 Atlantic 10) on Sunday, Oct. 31 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
GW dominated the pace of play the entire match, outshooting the Hawks, 22-6, including a 7-0 margin in the opening half. The Colonials finally broke through for a goal in the 69th minute when junior Frank Ambrosio headed a cross from sophomore Jeremiah Burke past Saint Joseph's keeper Trevor Lyman to take a 1-0 lead. It was Ambrosio's fouth tally of the season and the assist was Burke's first point of the year and the second of his career.
Junior Ben Mortimer tacked on an insurance goal for the Colonials when he converted a penalty kick chance at 79:28 after a Saint Joseph's foul in the box that resulted in a yellow card.
Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss made two saves to record his second straight shutout. Lyman kept the Hawks in the match by making seven stops.
Josh Simon paced the Hawks with four shots.
The Colonials will wrap up their regular season with a match at Richmond on Saturday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m.
