Women's Soccer Slips Late in 2-1 Loss to Xavier
Senior Kesha Christoph Scores Season's First But GW Gives Up Two
Oct. 13, 2002
CINCINNATI, OH - George Washington lost for the second time in three days in a 2-1 battle at Xavier. While the Colonials scored first, the Musketeers fired back with two late goals to seal the victory. Xavier scored twice within just minutes of each other (79th and 82nd minute) to put the Colonials away.
The two teams battled to a scoreless tie through the first 44 minutes of action but George Washington broke the deadlock with a goal at the 44:27 mark. GW senior Kesha Christoph (Columbus, OH/Tatnall) drilled a long shot from 35 yards out, placing the ball just between the crossbar and the outstretched arms of a XU senior goalkeeper Megan Veith (Cincinnati/St. Ursula). Christoph, who had nine career goals going into the match, recorded her first goal of the season and put GW ahead going into the half.
After holding Xavier scoreless for the first 79 minutes of play, freshman goalie Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Counsel) gave up a goal when Xavier's Jessica Robb (Cincinnati/Seton) punched the ball into the left side of the goal off a well placed corner kick from junior Lindsay Yonadi (Boca Raton, Fl/Spanish River). The Musketeers wasted little time in getting what proved to be the game-winning goal. Junior Tracy Veith (Cincinnati/St. Ursula) kicked a ball toward the goal from inside the box that sophomore teammate Melissa Clavier (Cincinnati/Mother of Mercy) finished off and kicked into the net at the 82:48 mark.
Xavier outshot the Colonials 15-7 in the match. Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's), who leads the Colonials and the A-10 with 10 goals, recorded four shots on goal but was unable to score. The Colonials are now 2-3 in the league and 5-7 overall. GW plays Saint Joseph's on Friday and Temple on Sunday before returning home for an October 25th meeting with Fordham at 3:00 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex.
