Women's Soccer Wins Season Opener Over Jacksonville, 2-1

Aug. 30, 2002

ORLANDO, FL - Junior Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) scored the second of two goals in the 83rd minute to lift the George Washington University women's soccer team over Jacksonville University, 2-1, in the opening round of the UCF Invitational Friday night at the UCF Soccer Field.

Warner recorded her first goal in the 29th minute of the match when she accepted a pass from freshman Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge) and took a shot from the top of the box that streaked past JU goalkeeper Stephanie Fowler.

After an attempt by Meghan Cracker (Lake Oswego, OR/Lakeridge) to put GW up 2-0 early in the second half, the Dolphins tied the score when Brooke Moore connected on a pass from Inge Heiremans in the 63rd minute.

Warner had an opportunity to put the Colonials ahead at the 76th minute. Fowler denied her first shot and a second attempt off the rebound was blocked by the JU defense. She would score on a header off a cornerkick by Kain to avoid the overtime.

Christine O'Malley (Davis, CA/Davis Senior) recorded six saves in the win for George Washington (1-0) while Fowler had seven for Jacksonville (0-1).

In the second game of the evening, Central Florida takes on Quinnipiac at 7 p.m. GW plays Central Florida Sunday at the UCF soccer field. That match begins at 3:00 p.m.
