Women's Soccer Downs Duquesne, 2-1
Warner, Squires Score in Ninth Victory of the Season
Oct. 12, 2003
PITTSBURGH, PA - George Washington's two first half goals proved to be enough, as the Colonials improved to 9-2-2, 3-1-1 in the Atlantic 10, the program's best start in its history.
Senior forward Kim Warner scored her tenth goal of the season, heading a loose ball over Duquesne's (6-6-2, 2-2-1) keeper to beat her one-on-one, and give the Colonials a 1-0 lead in the 33rd minute of play.
Sophomore midfielder Ashley Squires would record her third score of the season with just three seconds remaining in the first half, beating the Dukes' defense and lacing a shot past the goalkeeper to give GW a 2-0 lead at the break.
Duquesne would get on the board just five minutes into the second half when Erica Carey put home a pass from Katie Hensel from 10 yards out to halve GW's lead, but the Colonials would shutdown the Dukes for the rest of the match, posting their ninth victory of the season.
Goalkeeper Anna Handzlik made seven saves between the pipes for the Colonials, facing 13 shots by the Dukes for the match.
The Colonials head home to host Dayton on Friday, October 17, in a 3:00 pm match at Mt. Vernon Athletic Complex.
