GW Women's Soccer Wins Home Opener Over Wagner, 1-0 Molly Sunderdick's First Half Goal Wins it for the Colonials
WASHINGTON, DC -- Junior Defender Molly Sunderdick(Columbia, MD/Oakland Mills) scored her season's first to lift the George Washington Colonials over the Wagner College Seahawks. The decisive goal came in the first half with 30:30 left on the clock. The unassisted shot deflected off of a Wagner defender as it found its way to the net.
With the victory, GW improved to 2-1 while Wagner fell to 0-2-1 after taking its previous two games to double over time. The Colonials controlled the flow of the game getting off 17 shots 9 of which were on goal. This is not the first time that Seahawks Goalie Dana Honcharuk has been under fire as she had to make 45 saves in her first two games behind a young defense.
Sunderdick, Junior Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's), and freshman Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbot) all had two shots on goal for the Colonials. While Wagner's Midfielder Christine Statile recorded the only shot of the game for the visiting Seahawks.
Although the Colonials controlled the ball and the pace of the game, they could not capitalize on any other scoring chances . After taking 10 shots in the first half capped by Sunderdicks goal, the Colonials were slowed by a tighter Seahawks defense which played with passion. Great crowd support helped GW close out the win on a lovely afternoon at the GW - Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
