Final Stats


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The George Washington women’s soccer squad picked up their third consecutive home victory when they edged Fordham, 1-0, on Thursday evening at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. The Colonials improve to 7-3-1, 2-1 A-10 on the season and hand the Rams (5-4-3, 2-1) their first loss in conference play.

The teams remained in a scoreless deadlock for the entirety of the first half with both backlines holding strong against each other's attack. The Colonials were finally able to find the back of the net just five minutes into the second half when junior midfielder Sofia Pavon put a penalty kick into the upper right corner of the goal far beyond the goalkeeper’s reach. The Buff and Blue defense stayed solid for the remainder of the game, only allowing two shots on goal to cement the GW victory.
