Second-Half Scoring by UMass Trips Up GW Women's Soccer
Colonials Fall to Minutewomen, 2-0
Oct. 28, 2011
WASTHINGTON – The
Despite the squads firing off an equal 13 shots apiece, the Minutewomen’s first tally at the 62:49 mark proved to be the game-changer. UMass then scored a security goal with just over eight minutes showing on the clock as GW fell to the Atlantic 10’s second-ranked team.
The Colonials played an impressive first half that included a 6-4 advantage in shots over the Minutewomen and a 3-1 edge in corner kicks, as the clubs went into halftime with a 0-0 draw.
GW opened the second half with four shots, compared to the visitor’s two, but a free kick by UMass and an unsettled defense turned into a 1-0 score. The Minutewomen’s Cecilia Jensen dribbled past the Colonials defense to the left post and found an open Tori Sousa at the middle of the net. Sousa pushed the ball past GW goalkeeper Lindsey Rowe for the first score of the contest.
The Colonials tallied three more shots over the next 9:04 but could not find the back of the goal. UMass netted its second goal off an Erin McGaffigan header at 81:54. Julie Morrissey was credited with the assist.
Rowe made four stops on the day for GW.
