GW Women's Soccer Falls, 2-0, to Defending A-10 Champ La Salle
Colonials Wrap Season at Conference Championship
Nov. 7, 2013
RICHMOND, Va. – Despite taking a scoreless draw into halftime, La Salle netted two second-half goals just 32 seconds apart as the George Washington women’s soccer team fell to the defending Atlantic 10 Champion, 2-0, on Friday afternoon at VCU’s Sports Backers Stadium.
The Colonials close the 2013 season with an overall record of 7-6-5 under second-year Head Coach Sarah Barnes after reaching the A-10 Championship for the first time in 11 years.
“While we’re disappointed in the loss I am really proud of the progress this team has made over the past year,” said Barnes. “We appreciate everything this senior class has done for this program and we are definitely better because of the five of them.”
GW, the seventh seed in the championship, and second-seeded La Salle (14-4-2), were scoreless at halftime but the Explorers came out attacking in the second frame and the Colonials could not answer. Senior Jane Wallis took a team-high two shots for the Colonials in her final career game and classmate Nicole Ulrick made one save in her final stint between the posts.
The GW defense was strong in front of the goal and limited La Salle to just one shot on target before the Explorers took a 1-0 lead in the 75th minute.
Following a corner kick on the right side, La Salle’s Anna Dolhanksy sent a cross to the left side of the box. Kelsey Haycook headed the ball the keep it in play and Renee Washington sent a shot into the left side of the net. The Explorers took a 2-0 lead just 32 seconds later when Jackie Cammarata collected a pass from Gabriella Carbone 25 yards out and sailed the ball into the upper left corner of the goal.
Wallis took the final shot of the contest in the 88th minute but her attempt went wide left. GW graduates Wallis, Ulrick, Claire Haft, Melanie Keer and Alex Neal this spring and is slated to return 28 players for the 2014 season.
