Women's Soccer Wins 1-0 Over Creighton In Third Straight Shutout
Kim Warner Scores Her Season's Eighth Goal As GW's Streaks Continue
Sept. 28, 2003
WASHINGTON, DC - Kim Warner's (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) goal to open the second half proved to be the difference in the Colonials 1-0 win over Creighton. Warner has four game-winning goals this year matching her mark of last season. The senior has eight goals in the team's first nine matches and leads the A-10 in goals and points with 17. Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge) earned the assist on the lone goal for her team-leading third of the season. GW (6-1-2) recorded their third-straight shutout behind the effective keeping of Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Counsel).
With the victory, the Colonials continue two significant streaks. GW has not lost a match at home since the 2001 season and has gone 9-0-2 over that span. The Colonials also have the longest unbeaten streak in the Atlantic 10 this year, stretching the streak to seven straight undefeated matches. With a 6-1-2 start, GW is enjoying one of their best season in the program's 24-year history. The Colonials have also shutout opponents in their last three matches against tough Towson, Richmond and Creighton teams.
Warner's goal came in the 54th minute of play after a great assist from Kain. Kain played a header back into the box to Warner's feet to set up the goal. Warner finished with a shot around Creighton's keeper Jaimie Thompson who had come out hoping to field Kain's header.
Paolucci, getting her third start in the Colonials goal, played well making four saves in her second shutout of the season. Paolucci improves to 2-1-0 and has allowed only one goal this year. She has a low 0.33 goals against average and broke up a Creighton opportunity in the final 10 minutes coming out of the goal to collect a cross that may otherwise have resulted in a goal.
GW had additional opportunities from Warner and Kain as well as Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbot College) who had two good chances to secure her first collegiate goal. GW has two more Atlantic 10 matches this coming weekend to close out a five-game home stand. The Colonials have one point in A-10 play having tied Richmond in their conference opener. GW will play Massachusetts on Friday at 4:00 pm and Rhode Island on Sunday at 1:00 pm. Rhode Island is the last team to have beaten GW at home when Rams won 1-0 in overtime on October 26, 2001. GW is also 4-0 on the road this year. The Colonials are off to their best start in coach Tanya Vogel's four-year tenure.
