GW Women's Soccer Draws With Mount St. Mary's, 0-0
Colonials Register Season-High 19 Shots in Double Overtime Tie
Sept. 20, 2013
EMMITSBURG, Md. – The George Washington women’s soccer team registered a season-high 19 shots, but could not find the back of the net in a double overtime scoreless draw at Mount St. Mary’s on Friday afternoon at the Waldron Family Stadium.
The Colonials (2-2-2) outshot the Mount (1-5-2), 19-8, on the afternoon, including a commanding 11-3 shot advantage in the second half and a 6-1 edge in two overtime periods, but the Buff and Blue were forced to settle for a 0-0 tie.
Seniors Alex Neal and Jane Wallis and sophomore Kristi Abbate recorded four shots apiece for GW, which forced Mount St. Mary’s keeper Vicky Cocozza to make seven saves in 65 minutes of action in goal.
Abbate nearly put the Colonials on the scoreboard in the 15th minute when she fired a shot from the right side of the box, but her attempt curled just left of the post. Junior Nicole Belfonti, who tallied three shots in the match, almost broke the scoreless tie at 68:47 when she headed the ball to center of goal, but the Mount’s Cocozza caught the ball just beneath the crossbar. In the 76th minute, Neal’s shot from inside the box was barely saved away by a diving Cocozza.
Senior goalie Nicole Ulrick set aside four shots for GW in 110 minutes, making three stops in the first half and one in the first overtime period.
The draw concluded a four-match road swing for the Colonials, who return home to host Loyola (Md.) on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 4 p.m.
