Women's Soccer Loses Heartbreaker To Towson 2-1, In Double Overtime
Colonials Fall Despite Kim Warner's Fourth Goal Of the Season
Sept. 20, 2002
TOWSON, MD -- After 102 minutes of play, the Colonials lost to Towson on one of only a few opportunities GW Goalkeeper Christine O'Malley (Davis, CA/Davis) allowed. The game winning goal, scored by Towson's Mollie Merkel, was settled off of a rebound and chipped over O'Malley into the far side corner. The Colonials who had fought back to force overtime fell 7:05 minutes short of the match ending in a tie.
After giving up the first goal of the match to Towson's Martha Bielefeld in the 30th minute, the Colonials again turned to standout Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) to tie things up. Warner's goal marked her team leading fourth which (based on Monday's statistics) ties her for third in the A-10. The goal came off a cross from Sarah Minnich (Wilton, CT/ Wilton) who tallied her season's first assist.
O'Malley was called on to make nine saves as Towson outshot GW 14-9. Strong goalkeeping kept the Colonial's hopes alive as O'Malley more than double her season's save totals in contest. However, the match almost ended in the first overtime period when Towson's Bielefeld narrowly missed when her shot hit the post.
The Colonials fall under .500 for the first time this season going into their toughest contest, facing No. 25 Maryland. The match will be held at the University of Maryland on Sunday September 22 at 4:30p.m.
