Oct. 3, 2013
WASHINGTON – George Washington women’s soccer heads to Kingston, R.I., to kick off Atlantic 10 action against Rhode Island with a 7 p.m. match at the URI Soccer Complex on Friday.
GW (3-2-3) continues its two-game road swing following a 3-1 win at Howard last Friday. The Colonials applied consistent offensive pressure with 15 shots while the back line limited the Bison to just two attempts in each half. Sophomore Brooke Bean struck first for the Buff and Blue, netting her first collegiate goal to put the Colonials up 1-0. Senior Jane Wallis followed with the game-winner midway through the second half and rookie Lina Proska solidified the win the final tally of the night.
The Colonials’ front line has been productive on attack this season as GW has out-shot its opponents by a 111-61 margin through eight games. Proska (3 g) leads all scorers with six points while Wallis (2 g, 1 a) and freshman MacKenzie Cowley (2 g, 1 a) have each registered five points. Senior goalie Nicole Ulrick has played all 780 minutes between the pipes and has set aside 26 shots for a .722 save percentage. GW looks to remain unbeaten on the road as the squad is currently 3-0-2 away from the GW Soccer Field.
Rhode Island (5-6, 0-1 A-10) welcomes GW after dropping its conference opener, 3-1, at Fordham on Sunday. Despite out-shooting their opponents, 138-124, on the year, the Rams have been out-scored, 20-14, through their first 11 matches. Junior Samantha Leyh paces the URI offense with five goals and two assists for 12 points, while freshman Nicole Brennan has scored three goals and tallied an assist and classmate Donika Murray has recorded three goals. The squad has also used four goalkeepers this season who have combined for 49 saves and a 1.81 goals against average.
