Ina Kain's Two Goals Gives GW 2-1 Win Over Richmond
The Colonials overcome 1-0 deficit to earn a conference win.
Sept. 25, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington (3-3-2, 1-0) women's soccer team used two goals from junior Ina Kain (Irvine, CA / Woodbridge) to defeat the University of Ricmond 2-1 Saturday afternoon in the Colonials first conference game of the season at the Mt. Vernon Athletic Complex.
With the game tied 1-1 early in the second-half, sophomore Christine Jodri (Frederick, MD / Thomas Johnson) placed a perfect pass to Kain who was cutting in front of the Spiders' (2-4-1, 0-1) goal and knocked it right by the Richmond goalkeeper to put the Colonials ahead for good 2-1.
The Spiders took a 1-0 lead in the 22nd minute when sophomore Kelsey Blank scored on an assist from senior Olina Vidardottir.
GW tied the score when Kain converted on a penalty shot during the game's 37th minute. Kain was fouled attempting to shoot right in front of Richmond's net and was awarded the free kick.
Kain's goals were her first two of the season.
Colonials' goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) was once again extremely sharp, stopping four shots including two which were taken less than three feet from right in front of her.
Senior Megan Cox started in net for Richmond and was replaced in the second-half by junior Kelly Kolker. Each player allowed a goal.
GW's next match is Tuesday when they meet American University at Mt. Vernon. Game time is 4:00 p.m.
