Women's Soccer Posts Third Straight Victory
GW edges Saint Francis (Pa.) 2-1
WASHINGTON -- Freshman Alexis Williams netted her second goal of the season to lift the George Washington women's soccer squad to a 2-1 victory over Saint Francis (Pa.) on Sunday afternoon at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. The Colonials notch their third straight win and improve to 3-2-1 on the season.
Although the Red Flash got on the board in the first minute, the Colonials battled back to tie the game at the 14:08 mark in the first half with a goal from junior midfielder Sofia Pavon. The score stayed at a 1-1 deadlock for the remainder of the first half and for the majority of the second, but an offensive surge by the Colonials, which saw them outshoot Saint Francis 16-2, proved successful when Williams' shot slipped past the Red Flash goalkeeper with 10 minutes left on the clock. The GW back line held strong in the final minutes of play to cement the Colonials victory.
