Rebounded shot serves as the Dukes lone goal
Sept. 16, 2004
HARRISONBURG, VA - James Madison University sophomore Natalie Ewell's second half goal provided the only scoring of the game in George Washington's 1-0 defeat by the Dukes (4-2-0) in women's soccer Thursday night at the JMU Soccer Complex.
Colonials' (2-2-2) junior goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) blocked JMU senior Christy Metzker's point-blank shot attempt at the 59th minute mark. Handzlik then chased down the loose ball and swatted it away from the goal line, but Ewell controlled the rebound and sent the ball into the net from three yards out to score what would be the game winning goal.
Handzlik stopped nine total shots in the contest as JMU outshot GW 28-13 for the game.
Dukes' junior goalie Jessica Hussey recorded seven saves, earning her second shutout of the season.
The loss ended the Colonials four game unbeaten streak.
GW's next match is Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 PM when they play their home opener at Mount Vernon Field against George Mason University.
