Colonials Lock Up Spot in Atlantic 10 Championship
Siegel Tallies Personal-Best Five Points
Nov. 6, 2004
RICHMOND, VA - The GW men's soccer team (7-8-3, 6-3-2 Atlantic 10) clinched a berth in next week's conference championship with a 4-0 shutout of Richmond (3-13-2, 2-8-1 Atlantic 10) on Saturday, Nov. 6 at First Market Stadium. The bid is the third straight for the Colonials, who won the 2002 Atlantic 10 Championship.
The Colonials will be the third or fourth seed when the tournament begins on Thursday, Nov. 11 at GW's Mount Vernon Athletic Complex, depending on the outcome of the Temple/Saint Joseph's match on Sunday, Nov. 7.
The victory was the third straight shutout for GW, which extended its winning streak to six. Junior goalkeeper Derek Biss played all 90 minutes for the Colonials between the posts to earn the shutout. He did not make a save.
Sophomore Joseph Sigel scored twice in the first eight minutes of the match to give GW a commanding 2-0 lead at 7:49. The Colonials maintained their two-goal advantage until 76:27, when junior Frank Ambrosio took a cross from Siegel and found the back of the net to put GW ahead, 3-0. Freshman Wade Gerhardt notched his first career goal 9:14 later to close the game's scoring.
Siegel finished with a career-best five points, while Ambrosio contributed three points for the Colonials. Freshman Thomas Stuber assisted on GW's final tally to record the second helper of his career.
Colin Vint led the Richmond offense with three shots, while Eric Sciocchetti and P. J. Rohall combined to make six saves in goal for the Spiders.
The Colonials dominated the pace of play from the outset and outshot Richmond, 22-8, in the contest, and held 15-3 margin in shots after the first stanza.
If Colonials receive the third seed they will take on La Salle in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Championship on Thursday, Nov. 11. If GW is seeded fourth it will square of against Rhode Island.
