GW (2-2-1) most recently played William & Mary last Thursday and held a 1-0 advantage midway through the second half, but the game was called due to lightning after not reaching the 70th minute of play. Rookie Lina Proska netted a goal off of a pass from sophomore Kyla Ridley to put the Colonials up by one, but after several weather delays the match was declared “no contest.”
Despite not completing an official game since Sept. 8 – a 1-1 double-overtime draw at East Carolina – the Buff and Blue rank third in the Atlantic 10 with a 1.40 assists-per-game average and sit sixth in the league with 1.40 goals per game. Proska and classmate MacKenzie Cowley lead GW on the season with two goals apiece, while Cowley paces all scorers with five points (2g, 1a). Senior Nicole Ulrick has set aside 16 shots in goal and owns a .667 save percentage.
Mount St. Mary’s (1-5-1) is coming off a 1-1 double-overtime tie with Iona on Friday, snapping a five-game skid dating back to Aug. 23. Senior Jackie Corley put the ball in the net to give the Mount a 1-0 lead in the 34th minute, but the Gaels scored the equalizer just over two minutes later and neither side could break the tie. Mount St. Mary’s claimed its lone victory in its season opener with a 1-0 win at UMBC.
GW looks to maintain an unblemished record against Mount St. Mary’s as the Colonials have won the first two meetings between the programs, 1-0 during the 2009 season and a 1-0 overtime victory in 2010.
