Women's Soccer Drops Overtime Battle Versus Dayton
Flyers Score in Overtime to Top Colonials
Oct. 17, 2003
WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Washington lost only their third match of the season and first at home since the 2001 season, as the Dayton Flyers edged the Colonials 1-0 in overtime at Mt. Vernon Athletic Field.
GW's (9-3-2, 3-2-1 A10) streak of 13 home matches without a loss, a 11-0-2 record since October 26, 2001, came to an end in the 93rd minute of play, when UD's (9-4-1, 5-1-0 A10) Beth McHugh converted a pass into the box from teammate Katie Lowstuter, beating GW's keeper Anna Handzlik in the lower right-hand corner.
The goal would mar an otherwise strong effort by the Colonials against the Atlantic 10 Conference rival, as the two teams battled to a scoreless stalemate in regulation. Handzlik faced 15 Flyers shots, recording four saves for the match.
In their next match, GW hosts Xavier on Sunday, October 19, in a 1:00 pm match at Mt. Vernon Field.
