GW vs. Richmond – Sunday, 3 pm: Watch on RaiseHigh Live | Live Stats
WASHINGTON – The George Washington women’s soccer team hosts a pair of teams in its final weekend of regular-season competition. The Colonials first welcome non-conference opponent Delaware State to the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus on Friday for a 3 p.m. match before hosting conference foe Richmond on Sunday at 3 p.m. in a key A-10 contest and Senior Day game.
GW (5-5-5, 2-3-2 A-10) is coming off a 0-1-1 weekend of league action, falling at A-10 newcomer George Mason, 1-0, on Friday before battling VCU to a double overtime scoreless draw on Sunday. The Colonials’ staunch defense against the Rams helped GW secure its sixth shutout of the year – their most in a season since 2009.
The Buff and Blue have limited their opponents to a .090 shot percentage this season while senior goalkeeper Nicole Ulrick ranks second in the A-10 in goals-against average (0.87) and third in save percentage (.821). The Colonials are currently tied for seventh in the league standings with Massachusetts and with a win over the Spiders on Sunday, coupled with other results from around the league, could earn a bid to the A-10 Championship.
Delaware State (1-14) comes to GW after a 0-2 week, falling to Howard (1-0) and Towson (4-3). The Hornets have struggled on the offensive end this season as they have been out-scored by their opponents, 36-8, and have succumbed to nine shutout losses. The squad posted its first victory of the season on Oct. 15 with a 1-0 win over South Carolina State. Friday’s match marks just the second meeting between the two programs, as GW came away with a 4-0 win over Delaware State in 2008.
Richmond (5-8-3, 2-3-1 A-10) heads into this weekend’s action after going 0-1-1 in its final pair of home games last week. The Spiders fell to Duquesne, 2-0, on Friday then tied Massachusetts, 0-0, through double overtime. Richmond has been outscored, 25-13, by its opponents and has been shut out 10 times this season. The Spiders first travel to face their crosstown foe VCU on Friday before making the trip to GW.
