Women’s Soccer Continues A-10 Play
Colonials set to host Saint Joseph’s on Thursday and travel to Dayton on Sunday
KICKING OFF: The George Washington women’s soccer squad returns to action on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. to host Saint Joseph’s at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus before traveling to Dayton, Ohio to take on the defending A-10 tournament champion Flyers on Sunday for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
LAST TIME OUT: The Colonials split their weekend matches, taking a 2-0 victory at Richmond on Thursday before falling to Saint Louis, 1-0, at home on Sunday.
HOME IS WHERE HORN IS: Redshirt senior goalkeeper Miranda Horn has posted a 26-6-2 career record at home since 2014. The Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, native has won at least seven matches at the GW Soccer Field each season and has conceded no more than two games each year on home turf.
BOUNCING BACK: After the Colonials’ last loss at home on August 31 to LSU, the Buff and Blue went on to have their longest win streak (5) of the 2017 season. In that span, GW posted two shutout victories and outshot their opponents 58-46.
OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOR: The Colonials defensemen have combined to score two goals and tally five assists in 2017. Sophomore Deena DeSilva leads the back line with a career-high five points on one goal and three assists.
MILESTONES RECENTLY ACHIEVED:
- Miranda Horn – With 10 saves over the weekend, Horn has tallied 284 career saves as a Colonial and passed Christine O’Malley (2000-02) for fourth place on GW’s all-time career saves list.
- Allie Nornes – Tallied her first collegiate point on an assist to Sofia Pavon in the Colonials' victory at Richmond.
- Sofia Pavon – Surpassed her career-high of six goals when she found the back of the net for the seventh time this season at Richmond.
MILESTONES WITHIN REACH:
- Miranda Horn – Two shutouts shy of passing Lora Mozer (1987-90) for first place on GW’s all-time career shutouts list.
- Brittany Cooper – One assist shy of tying Ering Coopedge (1998-2001) and Jennifer Vogel (1993-96) for 10th place on GW’s all-time career assists list.
SCOUTING SAINT JOSEPH’S: The Hawks (7-5-2, 2-3-1 A-10) snapped a two-game losing skid on Sunday when they defeated Dayton, 4-2. Saint Joseph’s took an early lead in the match, scoring two of its four goals in the opening six minutes of action. Sophomore Gabrielle Vagnozzie and junior Michaela Finneyfrock combined for three goals and three assists on the day.
SCOUTING DAYTON: The Flyers (7-6-2, 2-2-2 A-10) played Saint Louis to a 1-1 draw on Thursday before falling to Saint Joseph’s, 4-2, on Sunday. The reigning A-10 tournament champions have not won a conference road match this season, but hold a perfect 5-0 record at home in 2017.
LOOK AHEAD: The Buff and Blue will hit the road for the last time in the regular season on Thursday, October 19 when they travel to take on the Davidson Wildcats for a 7 p.m. bout. The squad will then close out their conference schedule at home on Sunday, October 22 when they face Duquesne for Senior Day at 1 p.m.
