Women’s Soccer Returns Home to Host Fordham and Saint Bonaventure
Colonials have won six of their last seven games
KICKING OFF: The George Washington women’s soccer squad returns home after its season-long four-game road trip on Thursday at 4 p.m. when it hosts Fordham at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus. The Colonials will then welcome St. Bonaventure three days later on Sunday for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
LAST TIME OUT: GW (6-3-1, 1-1 A-10) finished its road trip over the weekend with a 1-1 record. The Colonials were edged by Revolutionary Rival George Mason, 4-3, on Thursday before topping Rhode Island, 1-0, on Sunday.
ROAD WARRIORS: The Buff and Blue return to the GW Soccer Field after playing four straight matches on the road. In that span, the squad posted a 3-1 record and saw nine Colonials end up in the scoring column.
O FROM D: The Colonials' back line has made an impact on the attack this season. Junior Dani Frese recorded her first goal of the 2017 season at Delaware State and sophomore Deena DeSilva has tallied two assists on the season, one apiece at James Madison and George Mason.
COOPER COMING IN CLUTCH: Senior Forward Brittany Cooper has recorded one goal in each of GW’s last four games and has tallied at least one point in each of the Colonials’ last six matches. She's tied-for-second in the conference with 12 points (4g, 4a) this season.
- Brittany Cooper – One assist shy of tying Erin Coopedge (1998-2001) and Jennifer Vogel (1993-96) for 10th place on GW’s all-time career assists list
- Miranda Horn – Five saves shy of passing Christine O’Malley (2000-02) for fourth place on GW’s all-time career saves list
- Miranda Horn – Five shutouts shy of passing Lora Mozer (1987-90) for first place on GW’s all-time career shutouts list
SCOUTING FORDHAM: The Rams (5-3-3, 2-0 A-10) travel to Washington D.C. after having a perfect opening weekend in Atlantic 10 conference play. Fordham picked up a double overtime victory at Rhode Island on Thursday, 2-1, before edging UMass, 3-2, on Sunday.
SCOUTING ST. BONAVENTURE: The Bonnies (0-9-2, 0-1-1 A-10) split their weekend, falling to Saint Louis, 5-0, on Thursday and playing Richmond to a 1-1 draw on Sunday. St. Bonaventure will play host to UMass on Thursday before heading to take on the Colonials on Sunday.
LOOK AHEAD: GW will continue conference action on Thursday, October 5 at 7 p.m. with a trip to Richmond, Virginia to take on the Spiders. The squad will then return home to host St. Louis for a 12:30 p.m. bout on Sunday, October 8.
