GW and Fordham Battle to 1-1 Double Overtime Tie
Nicole Cavino Scores Late Goal in Regulation to Save the Game for the Colonials
Oct. 3, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Trailing 1-0 with less than three minutes remaining in regulation, George Washington sophomore Nicole Cavino (Rye, NY / Rye) broke free from the Fordham defense and scored to tie the game and send it into overtime as the Colonials and Rams ended up in a 1-1 tie after two scoreless overtime periods Sunday afternoon in an Atlantic 10 match at Mount Vernon.
With time winding down in the second half, GW's aggressive play created an opportunity for senior Kelly Lawten (New Canaan, CT / New Canaan) to launch a pass from just beyond midfield, over the Fordham defenders, to a hustling Cavino who beat everyone down field and tapped it by Rams goalkeeper Julie Wynns for a goal that tied the game 1-1.
Fordham got on the board in the 73rd minute when senior Beth Purnell's touch pass to freshman Liane Scoenstein was converted for a score to give the Rams a 1-0 lead.
Although the Colonials outshot the Rams 6-2 during both overtimes, GW could not produce the game winner. Overall, GW outshot the Rams 21-13.
The Colonials had a number of scoring opportunities throughout the contest but could not capitalize. Sophomore Sarah Sample (Annapolis, MD / St. Mary's) got off 10 shots during the game including one midway through the first half that slipped through Wynns hands and hit the crossbar but bounced out.
Two minutes later junior Ina Kain's (Irvine, CA / Woodbridge) corner kick found junior Audrey Ehrhorn (Kailua, HI / Iolani) two feet in front of the Rams goal, but Ehrhorn's header went directly at Wynn who caught it for a save.
Wynn recorded 12 saves during the 110-minute game, while GW's goalkeeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) tallied six.
GW's next game is Friday night when they travel to Rhode Island for a conference match against the URI Rams. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
