Men's Soccer Falls in A-10 Quarterfinal
Colonials finish season 9-7-2
WASHINGTON - George Washington men's soccer closed its season Saturday, falling 1-0 to Rhode Island in an Atlantic 10 Championship quarterfinal at GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
The third-seeded Colonials fell behind in the 12th minute when Rhode Island's Tyler Dickson scored on a header off a corner kick. They pressured the sixth-seeded Rams for much of the second half but never produced the equalizer.
GW qualified for the A-10 Championship for the second time in three years and earned the chance to host its opener after winning six of its final seven regular season conference games. The Colonials finish the fall at 9-7-2 overall.
Rhode Island advances to play either No. 2 VCU or No. 7 St. Bonaventure in a semifinal at Dayton's Baujan Field next Friday.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Höfs finished the fall with a career-high 93 saves to lead the A-10. He started all 18 games for the Colonials and posted six clean sheets, including four in conference play.
GW put four more tries on net after halftime. The final one came in the closing seconds when Leifhelm snared Dylan Lightbourn's header off a long throw-in to seal the victory.
