GW Women's Soccer Falls to Fordham, 2-1, in Overtime
Freshman Kristi Abbate Sends Match to OT with 53 Seconds Remaining in Regulation
Oct. 14, 2012
Sunday was just the second overtime game of the season for GW, as the squad falls to 4-9-1 overall and 0-5-0 in the Atlantic 10. Freshman Nicole Fasano made seven stops in goal for the Colonials, who took 16 total shots, the second-highest total of the season following 24 attempts against Howard.
Playing to a scoreless draw through the first half, Fordham (7-9-0, 3-3-0 A-10) broke the tie at the 56:10 mark to put the Rams on the board. Victoria Camaj scored an unassisted goal from 35 yards out that sailed into the top right corner of the net.
Freshman Kristi Abbate scored the equalizer for GW with just 53 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime. Abbate dribbled up the left side through the Rams’ defensive line and drilled a shot into the upper right corner to record the third goal of her career.
Fordham took the only two shots of the extra period, the second of which proved to be the game-winner. The Rams’ Annie Worden fired a cross to Kristina Maksuti, who took a hard shot from 10 yards out. Fasano dove and defelcted the ball with her hands, but the ball found the back of the net and Fordham secured the 2-1 victory.
Sophomore Nicole Belfonti tallied a team-high three shots for the Colonials and Abbate, seniors Molly Bruh and Kayley Sullivan and sophomore Taylor Katz each took two. Rams’ goalkeeper Ally White was forced to make five saves on the day.
