GW Women's Soccer Draws 1-1 With American in Exhibition Match
Junior Kyla Ridley Nets Goal for Colonials
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's soccer team returned to the pitch on Wednesday evening and battled nearby rival American to a 1-1 draw in exhibition action at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Playing three 30-minute periods, the Colonials found the back of the net toward the end of the first frame, while the Eagles scored the equalizer in the third. The Buff and Blue put on heavy offensive pressure, out-shooting AU, 8-6, for the game, including a 4-2 margin in the second period.
Junior Kyla Ridley scored to put GW up 1-0 in the first period when a long ball was deflected off American goalkeeper Charlene Belanger's fingertips. Positioned front and center of the goal, Ridley collected the deflection and blasted the ball into the top of the net to give the Colonials the lead.
GW held American scoreless until the third period, but the Eagles' Lindsay Muri nabbed a loose ball in front of the net and sent it into the left side to knot the score a 1-1.
Junior Brooke Bean and sophomore MacKenzie Cowley each took a game-high two shots for the Colonials. Goalkeepers redshirt freshman Miranda Horn, freshman Monica Thom and junior Ellen Conway all saw time between the posts, while Horn recorded two saves on the day.
GW travels to Delaware on Saturday, Aug. 16 for its final exhibition match of the season. Action against the Blue Hens is slated for 7 p.m.
