Women’s Soccer to Host Pair of Matches

Sept. 5, 2017

KICKING OFF: The George Washington women’s soccer squad will go back-to-back at home this week when it hosts Towson on Thursday at 5 p.m. and Saint Francis (Pa.) on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.

LAST TIME OUT: Alexis Williams’ first career goal lifted the Colonials (1-2-1) to a 1-0 shutout victory over local foe American on Sunday. The midfielder from New Jersey broke the deadlock when she ran to meet a cross from fellow freshman Tuhina Dasgupta and tapped the ball in to cement the GW win.

HORN HITS MILESTONE: With six saves against American on Sunday, redshirt senior Miranda Horn took sole possession of fifth place on the all-time career saves list with 249. The Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, native will need just 25 more saves to move up to fourth.

CORNERING OPPONENTS: GW held an advantage in corner kicks for the third consecutive game on Sunday. The Colonials’ largest margin was against LSU, when they took 10 corner kicks to the Tigers’ two.

SCOUTING TOWSON: The Tigers (3-2-1) fell to Saint Joseph’s in a heartbreaking 4-3 overtime loss on Sunday afternoon. Although Towson held a 3-2 advantage at the 56th minute, the Hawks battled back with three unanswered goals to take the victory.

SCOUTING SAINT FRANCIS: The Red Flash (2-3) recorded a 3-0 home shutout victory over Loyola (Md.) this past week. Senior Leah Hardin scored two goals and freshman Camryn Tirado added to her impressive week with her third goal in two games.

LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will hit the road for a four-match-stint starting with a trip to Dover, Delaware to take on Delaware State on Thursday, September 14 at 7 p.m. GW will then travel to Harrisonburg, Virginia for a 1 p.m. bout against James Madison on Sunday, September 17 to close out its non-conference schedule.
