Women's Soccer Wins 2-1 Over Howard On Kim Warner's Two Goals
Colonials 4-1-1 Record Is One Of Program's Best Starts In History
Sept. 17, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - GW Women's Soccer defeated Howard courtesy of two Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) goals. Warner scored in the opening minutes of the first and second half to lift the Colonials to a strong 4-1-1 record. Warner now leads the Atlantic 10 in goals scored with six goals in GW's first six matches. GW Goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA/ Palos Verdes Peninsula/UC Boulder) had a shutout going until the 88th minute.
Warner opened the action with a goal in the second minute of the match. Freshman Sarah Sample (Annapolis, MD/St. Mary's) assisted on Warner's goal by playing a ball up to her down the right side. Warner beat the Howard defense to the ball and finished off the shot beating the keeper one-on-one. Warner's goal to start the second half also came two minutes into the action. This time, Meggan Eckert (Scottsdale, AZ/Desert Mountain) advanced the ball to Warner had slid a shot under the outstretched keeper. Warner had additional opportunities in the match taking nine shots on the day.
Late Bison substitute Michelle Williston tallied a goal for Howard with two minutes remain to make the score 2-1. Williston followed her own shot splitting two defenders with her goal. GW's defense assisted Handzlik with a team save but could not clear the ball before Williston put the ball in the net for Howard. GW had been playing with only 10 after Audrey Ehrhorn (Kailua, HI/Iolani) was sent off in the 79th minute with a red card.
The Colonials played some new players in the physical match-up with Howard. Sophomore Michelle Miller (Reading, MA/Reading Memorial) got her first career start at GW while freshman Shari Taylor (Fort Washington, MD/Bishop McNamara) saw her first minutes of play for the Colonials.
GW out-shot Howard 21-8 and had several scoring opportunities from Colleen Ragan (Coatesville, PA/Downingtown Senior), Ashley Squires (Rochester, NY/Our Lady of Mercy) and Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge).
At 4-1-1 the Colonials have their strongest start in recent history (if not all-time). GW will play a tough Towson team on Sunday, September 21 at Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The game has been moved 9:30 am due to the US Women's World Cup match at RFK Stadium at 12:30 pm. GW has not lost at home since 2001 going 6-0-1 during that span.
