Men's Soccer Downed by Owls, 2-0
Colonials Lose in First Round of Championship
Nov. 13, 2003
RICHMOND, VA - George Washington made a late-season push to qualify for the Atlantic 10 Championship, but was unable to defend their 2002 title, falling to the Temple Owls in the opening round, 2-0 at First Market Stadium on the University of Richmond campus.
GW (7-11-2) could not overcome an early score by TU (12-5-2) despite controlling the pace of the match for much of the game. The Colonials were unable to convert on numerous chances, including having a goal waived off after the official ruled a GW foul occurred prior to the shot.
The Owls got on the board in the ninth minute of the match when TU's Ryan Heins served the ball through GW's box to Nate Webb who found the back of the net to give Temple the 1-0 lead.
The Colonials turned up the pressure, attacking the Owls to the tune of nine first half shots. However, TU's defense, ranked second in the conference in the regular season, held off GW and took the one-goal lead into the half.
The Colonials and Owls battled through the majority of the second half with neither team scoring until TU broke through with eight minutes remaining in the match. Webb scored his second goal of the game after beating a defender on the left wing and lifting a shot over the charging keeper.
The 2-0 lead would prove to insurmountable in the closing minutes of the match, as an apparent score by GW just two minutes following TU's second score was disallowed due to a GW foul prior to the shot by Colonial freshman Joseph Siegel.
