GW Women's Soccer Drops 3-1 Decision to Saint Francis
Senior Jane Wallis Nets First Career Goal
Sep 1, 2013
WASHINGTON – The George Washington women’s soccer team out-shot Saint Francis and took a 0-0 score into the halftime break, but the Red Flash tallied three second-half goals to defeat the Colonials, 3-1, on Sunday afternoon in the final game of the D.C. Invitational at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
GW (1-2) held an 18-10 shot advantage over SFU (1-2-1) for the match, including a 9-3 lead in the second frame, but the Colonials didn't find the back of the net until senior Jane Wallis scored her first career goal off of a pass from rookie Kate Elson with 42 seconds remaining in action.
Wallis and classmate Alex Neal each fired a team-high four shots and Elson added three attempts.
Following a scoreless first half in which the Colonials out-shot the Flash, 9-7, Saint Francis netted three straight goals in a span of 10:44 in the second period and GW could not find an answer. SFU’s Alecia McNiff scored first when she headed Tesa McKibben’s free kick into the top right corner of the goal at the 58:30 mark. McKibben – the active leading scorer in NCAA Division I – then added an unassisted goal in the 68th minute to give the Flash a 2-0 lead.
Saint Francis extended the lead to 3-0 two minutes later when Barbara Maros de Carvalho connected with McKibben, whose shot was just out of reach of GW goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick’s fingertips as she attempted a diving save.
Ulrick made four stops in goal on the day for GW, while the Colonials forced SFU goalkeeper Jessica Andrew to make eight saves.
GW returns to the pitch on Friday, Sept. 6 with a 7 p.m. match at Old Dominion.
