Oct. 11, 2002
DAYTON, OH - After winning two straight, the Colonials dropped Friday's contest with the Dayton Flyers 2-0. The Flyers controlled the action at Baujan Field where they outshot the Colonials 28-3.
Dayton scored in the sixth minute of play and then again with nine minutes left on the clock to secure the win. Dayton's forward Liz Brown (Kettering, OH) took a perfectly placed long-ball from junior defender Erin Showalter (Brunswick, OH), made a move to get by GW goalkeeper Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Counsel), and scored on an empty net. Dayton tacked on an insurance goal in the 81st minute as senior Lindsey Whitehead (Centerville, OH) struck for her first goal of the season.
Dayton's Stephanie Weisenfeld (buffalo Grove, IL) recorded her league-leading seventh shutout of the year, although the effort only required one save. Colonials' freshman goalie Paolucci could not replicate her last two games, where she did not give up a goal, despite 13 saves in the match.
Dayton, who is tied with Richmond for second, now trails the Rhode Island Rams by one game for first place. GW star Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) is now tied for the Atlantic 10 lead in goals with Rhode Island's Melanie Kasparek with 10 goals and 21 points.
The Colonials will stay in Ohio through the weekend as they next face Xavier on Sunday. Xavier is coming off of their first A-10 win of the season, beating previously undefeated Richmond 2-1 on Friday. The Colonials next play at home on Friday October 25 at 3:00pm against Fordham.
