WASHINGTON, DC - Five different Colonials connected for goals in George Washington's 5-0 victory over St. Bonaventure Friday. The Colonials outshot the Bonnies 24-5 and scored four of their goals in the second period. Among the scorers was Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) who now leads the Atlantic 10 with nine goals and 19 points.
The Colonials' first goal of the match was also a first for junior Colleen Ragan (Coatesville, PA/Downingtown) who scored her first career GW goal in the 24th minute of the first half. Ragan settled a pass from Warner and slid a shot by the Bonnies keeper. Ragan got open in front of the net when the defense shifted to cover Warner who recorded her first assist of the season. Warner scored early in the second half when she collected a rebound in front of the goal and blasted it into the net in the 58th minute .
Three other Colonials recorded their first goals of the season in the victory. Meggan Eckert (Scottsdale, AZ/Desert Mountain) placed a ball just under the crossbar in a shot from 40 yards out. Moments after a corner kick, Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge) assisted teammate Sarah Minnich (Wilton, CT/Wilton) with a pass that eluded the goalie and was headed in by Minnich. Kain, a freshman, has four assists this year and also recorded her first goal during a breakaway in the closing minutes of the match.
