Colonials' Kim Warner and Kimberly Sanders Score in 2-0 Victory
George Washington Remains Unbeaten at Home (4-0) with Win Over Duquesne
Oct. 6, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - Averaging one goal per game, GW star Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) notched a goal to bring her season total to a league-leading 10 goals. Her first half goal was an unassisted effort that relied on her quick feet and perfect shot placement. After beating the defense on a breakaway, Warner was able to hook a shot around Duquesne's Goalie and just inside of the right post. The goal put GW ahead at the 15:07 mark.
Colonials' senior Kimberly Sanders (Knoxville, TN/ Bearden) recorded her second career goal in the 77th minute of the game after collecting a loose ball in front of the net. Sanders opportunity came after Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbott College) dribbled the ball through traffic and delivered a hard shot across the goal from 10 yards out. Dukes Goalkeeper Kristin Scharphorn made a diving one-handed save but could not hang on to the rebound. Sanders finished the effort with a blast from only a few yards out to put GW up 2-0.
Freshman Goalie Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Counsel) earned her second shutout in as many games in the victory. Paolucci made eight saves and withstood early pressure from Duquesne who started each period with a flurry of shots. She now has 12 saves and no goals allowed over the last two games.
The Colonials take their winning record in the A-10 (2-1) on the road for their next four matches. GW will play at home next against Fordham on October 25 at 3pm. The Colonials have played their best soccer at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex where they have outscored opponents 12-2 in four victories this season.
