UMass Knocks Off GW in Women's Soccer, 2-0
Colonials Fall to Minutewomen For First Time in Four Years
Oct. 10, 2004
AMHERST, MA - The University of Massachusetts (4-7-0, 2-3-0 A-10) scored a goal in the first half and added another in the second half to defeat George Washington (4-5-4, 2-1-2 A-10) 2-0 in women's soccer Sunday afternoon in an Atlantic 10 meeting at Rudd Field.
UMass goalkeeper Kristin Walker recorded six saves in the Minutewomen's first shutout in nearly two years.
UMass took a 1-0 lead when junior Adair Blyler scored 17 minutes into the match. Blyler took a pass from senior Lindsey Fairweather and beat GW keeper Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) from a few yards out.
The second half saw UMass mount pressure as Fairweather had several great scoring chances but was stopped by Handzlik and shot several balls high over the goal. Freshman Britt Canfield scored an insurance goal with 15:45 left in regulation. Canfield, the reigning A-10 Rookie of the Week, scored her team-high sixth goal as she blasted a shot from about 15 yards out that deflected off Handzlik's hands and into the goal.
GW was outshot 18-14 in the loss which was the Colonials' first to the Minutewomen in four years. GW had won the last three games, all by shutouts, 3-0, 2-0 and 1-0, dating to 2001.
The Colonials next game is Friday at 3:00 p.m. when they face Duquesne University for another A-10 battle at GW's Mount Vernon Field located at 2100 Foxhall Rd., northwest Washington.
