GW Women's Soccer Nips Quinnipiac 1-0
Sarah Sample's late goal lifts the Colonials for first win of the year
Sept. 3, 2004
WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Washington (1-1) sophomore Sarah Sample's (Annapolis, MD / St. Mary's) goal with 3:36 remaining in regulation broke a scoreless tie and gave the Colonials a 1-0 victory over Quinnipiac University (1-2) Friday in the Hoya Classic hosted by Georgetown University at North Kehoe Field.
GW junior Ina Kain's (Irvine, VA / Woodbridge) pass on a corner kick found Sample about 15-yards in front of the Bobcat net to set her up for the game winning goal.
Quinnipiac freshman Kirsten van de Ven came inches of scoring on two different occasions during the game but was denied both times on terrific athletic efforts from the Colonials' junior goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula).
Handzlik recorded five saves en route to her first shutout of the season.
"I think today's win displayed a lot of maturity," GW head soccer coach Tanya Vogel said. "We had to be a strong team to put this one together."
Quinnipiac goalie sophomore Heather Zaccone also posted a solid performance as she stopped eight shots and allowed just the one goal.
GW out shot the Bobcats 14-5 in the second half after both teams recorded six shots in the game's first 45-minutes.
The Colonials are back in action Sunday when they face Dartmouth College in the second and final game of the Hoya Classic. Game time is 12:00 p.m.
