Women's Soccer Back To Winning Ways With 3-1 Victory Over Saint Joseph's
Warner Lands 11th Goal While Kain And Minnich Contribute With Their Second
Oct. 18, 2002
PHILADELPHIA, PA - Though the match was evenly fought on Finnesey Field, the Colonials got the upper hand on the Hawks during a critical 35 second spurt. In the 68th minute, the Colonials sent two goals past Hawk goalie Christy Ganc, turning a tie ballgame into a 3-1 lead. It was all that GW needed to hold off the Hawks and return to a 3-3 record in the Atlantic 10.
The Colonials managed the important victory by following their star Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's) who got GW roling with a first half goal. Warner, scored unassisted from just outside the 18 in the 39th minute. Her shot beat Ganc to the right corner for her 11th goal of the season. With the goal, Warner now moves back into the A-10 lead for goals and points with 24.
SJU was able to respond in the second half, as junior Michelle Ford took a pass from senior Katie Watson to score in the 57th minute. The game remained deadlocked for another 11 minutes, until the Colonials put together 35 seconds of offense to seal the game.
While Warner's goal was the catalyst, two other Colonials stepped up to help seal the deal. First, Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge) fired a direct kick from the 20-yard mark into the back of the net, which turned out to be the game-winner. Then, after gaining possession off a tap, Warner sent a beautiful ball to a streaking Sarah Minnich (Wilton, CT/Wilton) on the left side. Minnich made the most of the opportunity, as she scored the insurance goal in the contest.
The Colonials will stay in Philadelphia through the weekend and contest their 6-7-0 record against Temple at 2:00 pm on Sunday.
