GW Women's Soccer Heads to George Mason for Friday Night Face Off
Aug. 23, 2012
WASHINGTON – Continuing its swing through the Washington, D.C., area, the George Washington women’s soccer team looks for its first win of the 2012 season when the Colonials travel to local foe George Mason on Friday, Aug. 24. Action on the pitch at George Mason Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
GW (0-1) looks to bounce back following a 2-0 season-opening loss to nearby Big East opponent Georgetown last Friday. The Colonials and the Hoyas entered the break with a scoreless tie, but GU netted two second-half goals that GW could not answer.
Junior goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick made five saves between the pipes in 40:33 of action before rookie Nicole Fasano stepped in. Making her collegiate debut, Fasano set aside one shot in 48:27 and allowed two tough Georgetown goals.
Not only are the Colonials in search their first win of the Sarah Barnes era, but they also look to defeat the Patriots for the first time ever. GMU owns a 17-0-2 all-time advantage over GW, with the last meeting coming during the 2007 season.
George Mason (1-1) is coming off a 1-1 week of action in which it fell to St. John’s, 2-0, and defeated American, 2-1, in overtime. Senior Tiana Kallenberger scored the game-winner in the Patriots’ contest against American in the 96th minute in the squad’s home opener.
