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.

Prior to Sunday’s game the Colonials will honor their five seniors – Claire Haft, Melanie Keer, Alex Neal, Nicole Ulrick and Jane Wallis
