Women's Soccer Gets Blanked By Maryland, 5-0
Former GW Coach Has Now Won Four Straight Against The Colonials
Sept. 22, 2002
COLLEGE, MD -- Colonial coach Tanya Vogel had looked forward to this game against her former coach right up until play began. Once it was all said and done the Maryland Terps ran away with the match in a strong 5-0 showing over GW. The Colonials only mustered four shots while Maryland kept the pressure on with 34 in the contest.
Colonial goalkeepers Christine O'Malley (Davis, CA/Davis) and freshman Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD) shared time in the net but could not come up with enough saves to keep a powerful Maryland offense at bay. O'Malley, who played the first half, made three saves and gave up three goals while Paolucci came up with four saves and allowed two goals.
Maryland's attack came at the foot of freshman phenom Ali Andrzejewski who scored two goals in the match and now leads the Terps with six on the season, in the teams eight games. The Terps who face several ranked teams this year, had just come off losses to No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 8 Wake Forest before beating GW. The Terps host ACC rival Duke on Friday.
Shannon Higgins-Cirovski, Marlyand's coach of four years, has been perfect against the Colonials, winning all four contests since leaving GW to coach the Maryland side. Vogel, a 1996 Graduate of The George Washington University, had been looking forward to the match as it was a chance to go into battle against her former coach. The match proved too great a challenge for the Colonials who now fall to 2-4 with only one more match before A-10 Conference play begins.
The Colonials now return home to face American University at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. The two crosstown rivals meet on Wednesday at 3pm.
