PHILADELPHIA, Pa.  – Senior goalkeeper Lindsey Rowe recorded her third consecutive shutout to help the George Washington women’s soccer team earn a critical point on the road and remain undefeated in Atlantic 10 play with a 0-0 double-overtime draw at Saint Joseph’s Finnesey Field Friday evening. It was the third overtime contest in as many games for the Colonials (4-7-2, 1-0-2 A10) and second in three matches for the Hawks (5-4-4, 0-1-2 A10).

“To go on the road and get points is a challenge and it’s definitely something that is important when you enter conference play,” said head coach Tanya Vogel. “It’s so encouraging that our girls can sustain such high energy though overtime, and it paid off in the end.”

GW nearly clinched the match at the 7:19 mark of the first overtime when junior Molly Bruh set up a corner kick that was received by classmate Adriana Moya. Moya fired a shot at the net but Saint Joseph’s goalkeeper Lauren Jancuska made the last of her four saves of the day to hold off Moya’s attempt.

The two squads exchanged shots throughout the 110 minutes of play, each tallying 11 overall, but neither could find the back of the net. SJU held a slight advantage in corner kicks with all of the Hawks’ four coming in the first half, while GW registered one corner kick apiece in each half and the first overtime.

“We have been physically battling and working hard all the way through the last minute,” Coach Vogel said. “Our preparation has gotten us here and we expect to fight for the rest of the season.”

Moya registered the lone shot of the second overtime and the final attempt for a GW victory but her shot went just wide of the net. Rowe made five stops on the day, including two in the first overtime period to keep the Colonials from a sudden-death defeat.
