GW Women's Soccer Falls to No. 21 Dayton, 3-0
Colonials Defense Not Enough for Flyers' Pressure Offense
Oct. 14, 2011
WASHINGTON – Despite a strong defensive effort by the George Washington women’s soccer team, the Colonials could not keep pace with No. 21 Dayton, dropping a 3-0 decision in Atlantic 10 action Friday evening at Mount Vernon Field.
GW held the conference’s leading scoring team to just one goal in the first half, but could not overcome the visitors’ two-goal second-half performance.
The Flyers (12-2-0, 3-1-0 A-10) found the back of the net just 9:16 into the contest to take a 1-0 lead. GW (4-9-2, 1-2-2 A-10) was unable to record a shot in the period, but the Colonials’ defensive pressure kept Dayton at bay for the remainder of the half.
Just over seven minutes into the second half Dayton’s Colleen Williams – the conference’s leading scorer – found her way around the GW back line to give the nationally ranked Flyers a 2-0 lead. UD’s Kelsey Smigel tallied her second goal of the contest with 1:43 to play for the third and final score.
Four different Colonials accounted for GW’s second-half attempts. Alex Neal, Claire Haft, Taryn Dietrich and Meg Murphy all got a piece of the ball, but struggled to find the target. Colonials’ goalkeeper Lindsey Rowe made seven stops on the day.
GW returns to the pitch on Sunday, Oct. 16, when the Colonials host Xavier. Action is set for 1 p.m.
