Colonials Improve To 5-0 At Home With 5-1 Win Over Fordham
Five Different Players Score And Kim Warner Nets Her League-Leading 13th Goal
Oct. 25, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - After falling behind 1-0, the Colonials quickly came to attention and scored five consecutive unanswered goals to silence the Rams. Five Colonials found the net including a career first from Audrey Ehrhorn (Kailua, HI/Lolani) whose parents traveled from Hawaii to witness the goal. George Washington improves to 5-3 in the Atlantic 10 and is in good position to claim the fourth and final playoff spot.
The Rams charged to an early lead on Beth Purcell's unasisted goal in the eighth minute of play. Purcell collected an errant GW clear and blasted the ball into the net from just inside the penelty box for the early goal. This was the only goa that freshman Kelly Paolucci (Lanham, MD/Good Councel) allowed in her 60 minutes of play. She was later relieved by senior Christine O'Malley (Davis, CA/Davis Senior).
The Colonials clicked for a goal ten minutes later when Sarah Minnich (Wilton, CT/Wilton) finished a beautiful lead-pass from Meggan Eckert (Scottsdale, AZ/Desert Mountain) who was awarded the assist. Senior Kimberly Sanders (Knoxville, TN/Bearden) knocked in the game-winner, her third goal of the season, with five minutes to go at the end of the first half to put GW up by one at the break.
Within the first five minutes of the second half, the Colonials extended their lead after quick goals from Ina Kain (Irvine, CA/Woodbridge) and Kim Warner (North York, Ontario/St. Joseph's). Warner's goal, which was keyed by an Amanda Bednarz (Hebron, BT/Rham) pass, was her 13th of the year putting her atop the goals and points list in the Atlantic 10. Ehrhorn pushed the lead to 5-1 with her first career goal finishing a pass from Lise Backman (Beaconsfield, Quebec/John Abbott).
The Colonials face A-10 rival La Salle in a critical match at the Mount Vernon Athletics Complex on Sunday at 1:00 pm. Going into the today's match, GW and La Salle were tied for the last spot in the A-10 tournament which takes place in just two weeks. Sunday's match-up could well decide whether the Colonials make the postseason this year.
