Women's Soccer Battles VCU For A 1-0 Loss
After A Scoreless First Half, GW Gives Up A Lone Goal
Sept. 5, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials Women's Soccer team gave up a goal to VCU early in the second half after battling through a scoreless first frame. GW's loss came in the first game of the Eurosport Hoya Classic at Georgetown's North Kehoe Field. The Colonials drop to 1-1 after the loss while VCU improves to 2-0. GW plays tournament host Georgetown on Sunday, September 7 at 2:30 pm.
GW goalie Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Counsel) made seven saves but gave up a VCU goal at the 51:46 mark when Jen Parsons found the net after a Catherine Duchesne cross. Parsons was able to knee the ball past GW goalie Paolucci for her first goal allowed this season.
Fifteen minutes later, Paolucci made two big saves in a wild series in front of the net. Parsons received the ball on a chip from her VCU teammate. Paolucci stopped the shot but the ball kicked out for another VCU shot on goal.
Early in the game, Paolucci smothered a rebound off a shot from 10 feet out saving a near-goal. The shot slipped through her hands but was slowed enough that she could turn and cover-up the loose ball before it reached the goal-line. Paolucci was called on to make four saves in the first half as VCU took eight shots. She made seven saves all told as VCU out shot GW 17-4.
The best of GW's scoring chance came with just more than 20 minutes left in the match when Ashley Squires (Rochester, NY/ Our Lady of Mercy) settled a cross from Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbot College). Squires' shot was just within the grasp of VCU goalie Chrissy Lloyd who jumped to make the save.
VCU evened the all-time series against GW at 1-1 with the win. The Colonials are 0-3 against Georgetown all-time, their opponent on Sunday in the final match of the tournament.
