GW Women's Soccer Heads to Old Dominion, East Carolina This Weekend
Colonials Look to Remain Unbeaten on the Road
Sep 5, 2013
WASHINGTON – The George Washington women’s soccer team opens a four-game road swing this weekend when it travels south to face Old Dominion and East Carolina. The Colonials visit the Monarchs in Norfolk, Va., on Friday for a 7 p.m. match before taking on the Pirates in Greenville, N.C., on Sunday at 2 p.m.
GW (1-2) is coming off a tough 0-2 weekend in which it was edged by No. 13 Georgetown, 2-3, and Saint Francis, 1-3, at the second annual D.C. Invitational. On Friday the Colonials took a 1-0 lead at halftime over the nationally ranked Hoyas, but the visitors rallied with three second-half goals to nab the victory. Rookie MacKenzie Cowley netted her second career goal off of a cross from junior Madison Davis to put GW up 1-0, and juniors Elizabeth Casey and Nicole Belfonti connected for the Colonials’ second tally in the second frame. On Sunday, GW and Saint Francis took a 0-0 score into halftime, but the Red Flash tallied three goals in the second half to defeat the Colonials. Senior Jane Wallis scored GW’s goal – the first of her career – with 42 seconds remaining in action, while freshman Kate Elson was credited with the assist.
Old Dominion (0-4) dropped consecutive matches last weekend to Liberty (0-2) on Friday and Radford (0-1) in overtime on Sunday. The Monarchs were held scoreless in three of their first four contests, with their lone goal coming from freshman Jackie Stroud in a 1-3 loss to Richmond on Aug. 25. The matchup between GW and ODU is just the fourth meeting between the two programs and the first since 2009.
East Carolina (2-1-1) split a pair of matches last weekend at its own ECU Soccer Tournament as the Pirates fell to UNC Greensboro, 0-1, on Fridaybefore earning a 2-1 double overtime victory over Western Carolina on Monday. ECU is paced on the season by junior Lexi Miller (1 g, 1 a, 3 pts) and freshman Lana Spitler (3 a, 3 pts), and has produced five different goal-scorers in its first four contests. Sunday’s game between GW and ECU will serve as the first-ever match between the two squads.
