Women's Soccer Opens A-10 Conference Play
Colonials travel to George Mason on Thursday and Rhode Island on Sunday
KICKING OFF: The George Washington women's soccer squad will open its conference schedule against Revolutionary Rival George Mason on Thursday at 7 p.m. before closing out its four-match road swing in Kingston, Rhode Island, against the Rams for a 1 p.m. kick off on Sunday.
LAST TIME OUT: GW rallied back from a one-goal deficit to defeat James Madison, 2-1, in overtime on Sunday evening. The Colonials improved to 5-2-1 on the season and extended their win streak to five in a row.
SUSTAINED SUCCESS: With Sunday's win over James Madison, the Colonials' win streak extends to five. In that span, GW has outshot its opponents 65-41 and has held a 23-10 advantage in corner kicks. The Colonials are one victory away from matching last season's win streak when the squad posted six victories in a row to start the 2016 season.
SHARP SHOOTERS: Eight different Colonials finished the weekend in the scoring column. Freshman midfielder Alexis Williams led the GW front line with one goal and two assists while senior forward Brittany Cooper recorded one goal and one assist.
WORKING OVERTIME: Senior forward Brittany Cooper recorded her second goal of the 2017 season with her overtime game winner at James Madison. With 30 seconds left on the clock, the A-10 Offensive Player of the Week lifted the Colonials to their fifth straight victory when she stole the ball off of a deflected pass, dribbled one-on-one past a Dukes' defender, and shot the ball between the pipes. The goal marked her third career overtime game winning goal.
SCOUTING GEORGE MASON: The Patriots (3-6-0) scored a pair of goals in the second half to defeat Penn, 2-0, on Sunday afternoon. Mason heads into conference play on a three-game win streak.
SCOUTING RHODE ISLAND: The Rams (3-5-0) edged Albany, 2-1, in their non-conference finale on Sunday. Rhode Island will open A-10 play at Fordham before hosting the Colonials on Sunday.
LOOK AHEAD: GW will open its conference schedule at home on Thursday, September 28 against Fordham at 4 p.m. The Colonials will then host St. Bonaventure three days later on Sunday, September 30 for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
