Colonials Capture Crucial 1-0 Win Over Temple
Kelly Lawten's Goal Keeps Post Season Hopes Alive For Women's Soccer
Oct. 29, 2004
PHILADELPHIA, PA - George Washington University (6-7-5, 4-3-3 A-10) senior Kelly Lawten's (New Canaan, CT, New Canaan) goal in the 84th minute broke a scoreless tie and gave the Colonials a 1-0 Atlantic 10 victory Friday afternoon over the Owls (4-13-1, 1-8-1 A-10) at Temple Stadium, keeping GW alive in the hunt for a conference tournament spot with one regular season game remaining.
The Colonials entered Friday one point out of sixth and the final spot for the Atlantic 10 tournament hosted by the University of Massachusetts Nov. 4-7.
Both team's defense held its respective opponent in check until Lawten, a defensive back, broke through to head sophomore Sarah Sample's (Annapolis, MD, St. Mary's) pass into the Owls' net and put GW ahead 1-0.
The goal was Lawten's second of the season.
Colonials' goalie Anna Handzlik (Palos Verdes, CA / Palos Verdes Peninsula) stepped up huge in a must win game for GW, rejecting eight shots and earning her fourth shutout of the season.
GW's final regular season match is Sunday at St. Joseph's University. Game time is 1:00 p.m.
In order to secure a place in the tournament, the Colonials need to defeat the Hawks and have both UMass and Xavier lose its games on Sunday.
UMass defeated St. Bonaventure 3-0 on Friday and plays at Duquesne Sunday.
Xavier lost 2-1 to La Salle on Friday and plays at Fordham Sunday.
