GW Women's Soccer Game Versus W&M Canceled at Halftime
Colonials Held 2-0 Lead Prior to Lightning Delay
WASHINGTON – Despite holding a 2-0 lead over William & Mary at halftime, due to lightning in the Washington, D.C., area, the match was canceled after not reaching the 70th minute of play.
The Colonials (3-0) saw first-half goals from sophomore MacKenzie Cowley and rookie Brittany Cooper, but after a lightning and rain delay that extended past 7 p.m., the match was called. NCAA rules state that a game that does not reach the 70th minute of action is declared “no contest”.
The match will not be rescheduled.
Cowley struck first for the Colonials at the 18:27 mark when she chipped the ball over William & Mary (1-1) goalkeeper Caroline Casey’s head from eight yards out and her shot squeezed just under the crossbar. GW extended the lead to 2-0 at 29:55 as sophomore Kate Elson connected with Cooper, who buried a shot from the left wing.
GW returns to the pitch on Sunday, Sept. 7 with a 4 p.m. match at Liberty in Lynchburg, Virginia.
