Box Score

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.

GW also peppered UD's goal, logging 11 shots, six of which were on goal. Sophomore midfielder Ina Kain and freshman forward Sarah Sample led GW with four shots each.

In their next match, GW hosts Xavier on Sunday, October 19, in a 1:00 pm match at Mt. Vernon Field.
