GW Men's Soccer Looks to Bounce Back vs. NJIT on Wednesday

Sept. 25, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team concludes its three-game homestand on Wednesday, when it hosts NJIT at 3 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
GW Athletics will be collecting gently used clothing from other schools for the Salvation Army as part of the "Dirty Jersey Exchange." The first 20 fans to donate gear will receive a free GW T-shirt.
The Colonials (3-4-0) look to bounce back following a 2-1 loss to UMBC on Saturday. Senior forward Seth Rudolph gave GW an early lead, but the Retrievers responded with back-to-back goals in a five-minute span. Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe recorded a career-high 11 saves in the game.
Junior Tyler Ranalli leads the Colonials with seven points on three goals and an assist, while senior Seth Rudolph also has three goals this season, and sophomore Joe Holleran has dished out a team-best three helpers. Van der Merwe, who ranks third in the Atlantic 10 with 5.67 saves per game, boasts an .810 save percentage in his debut campaign.
NJIT (6-5-0) is coming off a 2-1 week that included wins over St. Peter's and San Jose State and a loss to Santa Clara. Franco Gamero leads the Highlanders with five goals and 11 points on the season, while Marko Drljic is tops with four assists. Goalkeeper Lars Maalen-Johansen has posted a 1.54 goals-against average and a .727 save percentage in nearly 900 minutes between the pipes.
Wednesday's contest marks the first-ever meeting between GW and NJIT.
