Kim Warner Scores Four In Women's Soccer Win Over American, 4-2
Warner lifts season goal total to eight and is now tied for fifth all time at GW
George Washington, who had won four of five contests against crosstown rival American, jumped in front first, off the foot of Warner. With breakaway speed, Warner created an opportunity and then followed up her shot by finding the net in the 26th minute. American answered just two minutes later with a scorcher from Savannah Rennels who put in her 10th goal of the year from outside the box to tie the match at one.
Warner's second goal came off of another loose ball this time settled by fellow Canadian Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbott College) who got the assist. Backman followed her shot, which was blocked, by recovering the ball and passing it across the goal to Warner for a tip-in from close range with 34:25 on the clock. The Colonials went into the half leading 2-1 and kept the pressure on throughout the second half.
The next goal on Warner's prolific day came at the 67:58 mark when she was left unmarked to receive a well-placed pass from Molly Sunderdick (Columbia, MD/Oakland Mills) who earned the assist. Warner did the rest and found the far side netting wrapping the shot around the Eagles goalie who was pulled out of the net. Warner's fourth and final goal of the afternoon came off a well timed assist from Meghan Cracker (Lake Oswego, OR/Lakeridge).
Warner, a redshirt junior, is now tied with her coach Tanya Vogel (George Washington '96) for fifth in goals on GW's all-time list with 21. Warner is now tied for ninth with Tanya's sister Jennifer Vogel (George Washington '97) for career points at 47.
American's Anabel Jimenez spoiled a strong performance by freshman goalie Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Councel) by scoring with just three seconds left in the match. Poalucci had made a few big saves earlier in the contest to keep the Colonials on top. She had 10 saves and recorded the first win of her career.
The Colonials (3-4-0) got back to their winning ways just in time for A- 10 play to start. They play at Richmond's First Market Stadium on Saturday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m.
