GW Women's Soccer Draws, 1-1, with American in Double Overtime
Colonials Stay Undefeated at Home, Host Howard on Friday
Sept. 18, 2012
The Colonials (3-4-1) remain undefeated at home and will now host fellow District rival Howard on Friday to wrap up non-conference action.
American (2-6-2) scored first at the 13:31 mark when the Eagles' Sam Trotta got control of a loose ball in front of the goal and sent a touch pass to Erin Mulhern whose shot bounced off the crossbar into the left side of the net.
Senior Molly Bruh netted the equalizer - her second career goal - on a penalty kick at 59:46 for the final tally of the evening. Freshman Kristi Abbate carried the ball around American defenders from the midfield into the box and drew an Eagles' foul that awarded the Colonials the penalty kick opportunity.
GW saw several opportunities to break the tie in the second half when the squad took seven of its season-high tying 14 shots. At 71:12 junior Claire Haft fired a shot from the right side that forced American goalkeeper Charlene Belanger to make a diving save and knock the ball away with her fingertips. Just over two minutes later sophomore Taylor Katz set up a shot off of a corner kick play but her attempt was blocked by an Eagles' defender.
Freshman goalkeeper Nicole Fasano set aside six shots on the day while classmate Shannon Murphy made her first collegiate appearance between the pipes and recorded her first career save.
GW returns to action on Friday afternoon for Game Two of its five-match homestand when the Colonials face Howard at 4 p.m.
