Late Team Goal Gives GW 1-0 Win Over La Salle
A GW Own Goal Breaks Scoreless Tie and Lifts Colonials to A-10 Win
Oct. 1, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - After battling for almost 85 minutes without either team scoring, La Salle University (5-3-2, 1-1 A-10) inadvertently knocked the ball into its own goal to give George Washington (4-4-2, 2-0 A-10) a 1-0 conference victory over the Explorers Friday afternoon at Mount Vernon.
With the score knotted up 0-0, GW midfielder Ina Kain (Irvine, CA / Woodbridge) fired off a shot in the 84th minute that was blocked by La Salle goalkeeper Kerry Schamberger. In the ensuing scramble for the loose ball, an Explorer defender knocked the ball into La Salle's net to put the Colonials on the board 1-0.
GW goalie Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes) was brilliant in recording her third shutout of the season. She made a number of acrobatic saves including one in the game's last minute to preserve the victory. Overall, Handzlik stopped seven shots.
"The play of Anna Handzlik and Kelly Lawten on defense was fantastic," GW head coach Tanya Vogel said. "We played well enough to win. We had to focus on taking advantage of opportunities and that's what we did today."
The Explorers out shot the Colonials 10-6 in the contest and held a 13-1 advantage in corner kicks.
GW will host Fordham University at 1:00 pm on Sunday at GW's Mount Vernon Field located at 2100 Foxhall Rd., northwest Washington.
