Men's Soccer Caps Regular Season at Saint Joseph's
GW looks to improve A-10 Tournament seeding
George Washington men's soccer closes the regular season Saturday at Saint Joseph's. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Sweeney Field in Philadelphia.
The Colonials (8-6-2, 5-2 A-10) have won three straight Atlantic 10 games to continue their climb up the conference standings. With 15 points, they've clinched a spot in the upcoming A-10 tournament and will earn a home game to start if they land a top-four seed.
LAST TIME OUT: GW has had off since its 1-0 win over Duquesne last Saturday. On Senior Day, Peirce Williams scored for the Colonials the 54th minute, and Thor Arne Höfs made seven saves to post the shutout. It was his fifth straight clean sheet at GW Soccer Field.
IN FOCUS: GW ranks fourth in A-10 play with 1.71 goals per game. The Colonials have scored multiple goals in four of seven conference games after doing it only once in nine nonconference games. Williams and Dylan Lightbourn lead the squad with seven points apiece against A-10 competition.
FUN FACT: GW has more wins over Saint Joseph's (18) than any other A-10 opponent. Georgetown (21) and Howard (19) are the only programs the Colonials have more wins against in their history.
SCOUTING SAINT JOSEPH'S: The Hawks (3-9-4, 1-4-1) fell, 3-0, to VCU last Saturday for their third straight A-10 loss. With four points and two games left, they remain in contention for a spot in the conference tournament.
Matt Crawford leads Saint Joseph's with six goals. Keeper Greg O'Connell is second in the A-10 behind Höfs (82) with 78 saves.
COMING UP: GW will have to wait for the rest of the A-10 to finish the regular season Wednesday before finding out its conference tournament assignment. The quarterfinals are set to be held at campus sites Nov. 4 and 5 before the semifinals and finals are hosted by Dayton the following weekend.
