GW Women's Soccer Hosts American on Tuesday to Kick Off Five-Match Homestand
Colonials Look to Extend Unbeaten Home Record Against Local Rivals
Sept. 17, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's soccer team kicks off a five-game homestand on Tuesday afternoon when the Colonials host district rival American for a 4 p.m. match at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
GW looks to extend its unbeaten home record this week and eclipse the .500 mark with five-straight games on the Colonials' turf. Following GW's match with American the squad welcomes local foe Howard on Friday to wrap up non-conference action. The Colonials open Atlantic 10 play on Friday, Sept. 28 against Richmond.
"We are excited to be back at Mount Vernon this week as it's always exciting to play at home in front of our wonderful fans," first-year head coach Sarah Barnes said. "Being at home gives us an extra edge and these final two non-conference games will be important for us to fine tune our playing as we head into A-10 play."
The Buff and Blue (3-4) are coming off a 1-0 loss to Liberty last Friday, marking their third loss this season by a one-goal deficit. Senior Adriana Moya recorded a team-high three shots and sophomore Meg Murphy and freshman Amanda Gaggioli registered two apiece, while rookie goalkeeper Nicole Fasano made seven stops between the pipes.
American (2-6-1) comes to Mount Vernon after hosting five straight games at Reeves Field. Most recently the Eagles defeated local rival Howard, 2-1, for its first home victory of the season on a goal by junior Shaena Alfonsi with just 28 seconds remaining in regulation.
The Colonials lead the all-time series with the Eagles, 11-4, and have won three straight home matches against American dating back to 2004. Fans can follow action between the Washington, D.C., foes via Gametracker live stats and the @GW_Soccer Twitter handle.
