WASHINGTON – The George Washington women’s soccer team played a hard-fought 90-minute battle against visiting Richmond on Saturday, but the Colonials could not stop the Atlantic 10’s second-place team as they dropped a 1-0 decision at Mount Vernon Field.

“Our girls played hard and they played with a lot of passion today,” said head coach Tanya Vogel. “We just need to find a way to finish offensively.”

Senior goalkeeper Lindsey Rowe made 10 stops between the pipes – including seven in the second half – marking the fourth contest this season in which she has made double-digit saves.

GW (5-10-2, 2-3-2 A-10) tallied 11 shots throughout the match, forcing Spiders’ goalkeeper Andrea Young to make eight saves. The clubs came to a 0-0 draw after one half, posting virtually equal numbers in the shots, corner kicks and saves categories.

Richmond (11-4-3, 5-1-1 A-10) found the back of the net off a corner kick set piece when Natalie LeClair headed a pass from Liza Koch past Rowe at the 65:22 mark to record the game-winner.

“Lindsey did an incredible job in goal today,” Vogel said. “She made several fantastic saves and really kept us in the game.”

The Colonials return to the pitch on Friday, Oct. 28, when they host conference opponent Massachusetts. Action is set for 3 p.m. at Mount Vernon Field. GW currently sits in eighth place in the A-10 standings with six league matches scheduled for Sunday.
