GW Dominates Delaware State, 4-0
Colonials Play Strong From Beginning To Finish
Sept. 12, 2008
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington women's soccer team (2-4) scored four goals in the second half to defeat Delaware State University (0-5) 4-0 at Mount Vernon Field Sunday afternoon. Kristen Slack scored the game winning goal five minutes into the second half and GW never looked back.
The Colonials opened fast and shot the ball often peppering the Hornet goalkeeper with 20 shots in the first half. They were unable to find the net but knew the chances were coming.
The scoreless tie was broken when Slack, scoring her first goal of the season, put home a corner kick into the bottom corner of the net. Just three minutes later Erica Wright, who had assisted on Slack's goal, willed a shot into the back of the net just from inside the box.
At the 62:45 mark freshman Sierra Smidinger crossed the ball to the top of the box where Keara Mehlert scored shooting the ball into the top corner off the post and in. Rounding out the scoring with about five minutes remaining in the game, Brittany Eger passed the ball to Freshman Taryn Dietrich who blasted the ball into the left side of the net pulling the score to 4-0. The goal was the first for Dietrich in her Colonial career.
George Washington's defense did not surrender a shot on net the entire game. Senior Christy Mazzola and Junior Liz Hillin were constantly forcing Hornet players into mistakes and not allowing them to get anywhere near the GW net.
The GW women's soccer team will host Howard University Sunday, September 12 at 1 p.m. at Mount Vernon Field (2100 Foxhall Rd. NW).
