Neal's Tally Lifts GW Women's Soccer Over Columbia in Home Opener
Coach Sarah Barnes Garners First Victory at the Helm of the Colonials
Sept. 1, 2012
The win at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus gives first-year head coach Sarah Barnes her first victory with the Buff and Blue as it improves to 1-2 on the year.
“I think we have a lot to be proud of today,” said Coach Barnes. “We played well and executed our game plan against a good team. We deserved this win.”
Neal and Wallis connected for the lone goal of the contest, which was the first-ever between the two programs, after 63 scoreless minutes and eight shot attempts. Freshman goalkeeper Nicole Fasano, who made her second career start between the pipes, picked up her first career shutout with four saves.
The Colonials held an 11-9 shot advantage over the Lions (0-1), including 6-3 in the second half, and saw several scoring opportunities narrowly miss the frame. Just over four minutes into the match, senior Adriana Moya headed a corner kick from fellow senior Molly Bruh that deflected off the right post. At the 26:59 mark, Neal ripped a shot that sailed just over the upper right corner of the net.
GW used solid passing and steady ball control to work its way around
The Colonials return to action on Monday, Sept. 3 with a 1 p.m. contest against Ivy League member Cornell. The Big Red fell to nearby
