Sept. 26, 2013
WASHINGTON – George Washington women’s soccer makes the short trip across the district to face Howard at Greene Stadium on Friday at 7 p.m.
The Colonials (2-2-3) are coming off their third straight double-overtime tie after battling Loyola to a 1-1 draw at home on Tuesday. GW matched its season-high shot total with a 19-8 advantage over the Greyhounds, but could not find the back of the net to break the tie.
Rookies MacKenzie Cowley (2 g, 1 a) and Lina Proska (2 g) continue to pace the Colonials’ offense with five and four points, respectively, on the season. Senior goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick has set aside 24 shots in seven matches.
Howard (2-4-1) is on a two-game skid after falling to Prairie View A&M, 2-0, on Sunday in the MEAC/SWAC Invitational in Houston, Texas. Five different players have scored a goal for the Bison through their first seven games, while keeper Kyra Dickinson has recorded 53 saves and three shutouts.
GW leads the all-times series over Howard at 6-0-1 and earned a 2-0 win at home last season. The Colonials have posted four consecutive shutout victories over their crosstown rivals and have not allowed a goal against the Bison since a meeting in 2005.
