A-10 Newcomer VCU Downs GW Women's Soccer, 2-0
Freshman Kristi Abbate Registers Match-High Four Shots
Sept. 30, 2012
GW freshman goalkeeper Shannon Murphy made a career-high five saves, as VCU (6-3-3, 1-1 A-10) fired off 15 shots in the first-ever match between the two teams as Atlantic 10 foes and the first contest overall since the 2004 season. Freshman Kristi Abbate recorded half of the Colonials' attempts with a match-high four shots.
The Rams took three of the first four tallies of the day, the fourth proving to be the gamewinner in the 11th minute. Cristin Granados set up a VCU corner kick at 10:10 and Wendy Acosta stood in front of the goal and headed the pass into the right side of the net.
The Colonials' offensive attack did not surrender, as GW (4-6-1, 0-2 A-10) countered with three corners and two shots uninterrupted over the next 8:19, but the visitors registered the next four shots and two corner kicks to close the half with a 1-0 advantage.
VCU added a security goal at 81:29, when Jessie Krasko collected the ball in the circle and sent a short pass to Aisha Allen in the center, and Allen pushed the ball into the right side of the net for the 2-0 lead. The Colonials took fives shots in the second stanza, but Rams' goalkeeper Kristin Carden was forced to make just two saves.
