Women's Soccer Rallies in Non-Conference Finale
Colonials edge Dukes, 2-1
HARRISONBURG, Va. -- The George Washington women's soccer squad rallied back from a one goal deficit to defeat James Madison, 2-1, in overtime on Sunday evening to close out its non-conference schedule. The Colonials improve to 5-2-1 on the season and extend their win streak to five in a row.
James Madison attacked early on offense, making a quick strike to take the lead in the first half. The Colonials stayed strong on the back line and gained energy in the second half when freshman midfielder Alexis Williams weaved past the James Madison defense and tapped the ball past the Duke's goalkeeper to make the score even. The score stayed in a deadlock for the remainder of the second half and through the majority of the first overtime period until senior forward Brittany Cooper found the back of the net with 30 seconds left on the clock to hand the Colonials their fifth consecutive victory.
