Freshman Goal Carries the Colonials to 1-0 Win
Kiki Colker's header hands GW victory over South Dakota State
Sept. 10, 2004
Omaha, NE - Freshman Kiki Colker's (Beverly Hills, CA / Beverly Hills) goal with just over five minutes to play in the first-half was all George Washington (2-1-1) needed to defeat South Dakota State University (0-4-0) Friday night as the Colonials came away with a 1-0 victory in the opening game of the Diadora Classic hosted by Creighton University.
Junior Ina Kain (Irvine, CA / Woodbridge) recorded her second assist of the season when her corner kick at the 39:50 mark was drilled into the Jack Rabbits' net courtesy of Colker's header.
Both Colker and Kain applied heavy pressure on SDSU's defense all game. Colker, who came off the bench, fired off five shots with three on goal and Kain got off six shots with four on goal.
All total, the Colonials outshot the Jack Rabbits 24-11 as SDSU could only convert two shots on goal for the contest.
GW's junior goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) stopped both scoring attempts she faced during the game to notch her second shutout of the young season.
Jack Rabbit sophomore goalie Jenn Davis recorded eight saves in the loss.
The Colonials next play Sunday afternoon at 3:30 P.M. Eastern when they face Creighton University.
