Women’s Soccer to Wrap Regular Season

Oct. 17, 2017

KICKING OFF: The George Washington women’s soccer squad will hit the road for the last time in the regular season on Thursday when they travel to take on the Davidson Wildcats at 7 p.m. before closing out their conference schedule at home on Sunday against Duquesne for Senior Day at 1 p.m.

SENIOR SHOUTOUT: The Colonials will honor Miranda Horn and Brittany Cooper in a Senior Day ceremony at 12:45 p.m. before kickoff against Duquesne.

HORN HITS MILESTONE: With her eighth shutout of the season at Dayton, redshirt senior goalkeeper Miranda Horn turned in her 29th career clean sheet and passed Lora Mozer (1987-90) to become GW’s all-time career shutouts leader. The Hamilton, Ontario, native is also tied-for-16th on the NCAA’s active career shutouts list.

ROAD WARRIORS: The Colonials have posted a 6-2-0 record on the road this season and have only conceded one match on an opponent’s home turf in conference action.

SHARP SHOOTER: Junior midfielder Sofia Pavon has scored eight goals on 39 shots and has tallied two assists this season to lead the Colonials with 18 points, a mark that ranks tied-for-sixth in the conference. The marketing major has scored four of her season-high eight goals on the road and is tied for fifth in the A-10 in points per game (1.12).

HOME COOKIN’: Miranda Horn has posted a 26-6-3 career record at home since 2014. The international affairs and history major 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.

SEEING DOUBLE: With their victory at Dayton, the Colonials notched their 10th win of the season and posted double digits in the win column for the 15th time in program history.

SCOUTING DAVIDSON: The Wildcats (2-14-1, 0-7-1 A-10) fell to George Mason, 1-0, on Sunday. Sabine Chandler had a team-high three shots, putting two of them on goal, while senior goalkeeper Becca Ravitz finished with four saves between the pipes.

SCOUTING DUQUESNE: A pair of first half goals propelled Massachusetts to a 2-0 victory over Duquesne (10-4-2, 6-2-0) on Sunday. The Dukes will host St. Bonaventure on Thursday before traveling to Washington, D.C. to take on the Colonials on Sunday.

LOOK AHEAD: The Buff and Blue have already clinched a spot in next week’s Atlantic 10 Championships hosted by VCU and will await seeding pending Sunday’s results.
