Last time out: On Saturday, Sept 7, the Colonials took the field for their first two games of the season, against a split-squad from Salisbury University. In the opening exhibition match, sophomores Jamie Genatt and Fernanda Rojas each scored twice to lead the front line in a 7-1 victory. Tessa Hill, Emma Reid, and Steph Marcozzi tallied the remaining goals. First-year players Kaitlyn Manning, Ali Kruse, and Ali Valentin, among others, all provided assists.
The second game of the day marked the WROCCSL Balt/Wash Division opener for the defending champs. Paced by another pair of goals by Fernanda Rojas, GW cruised to a 3-0 victory. Amanda Pasek opened the scoring, knocking in a loose ball off a corner kick. Freshman Taylor Mott played the full game, earning her first collegiate clean sheet. Nahal Poormasjedian and Nally Kinnane chipped in with the assists. Next up: On Saturday, Sept 14, GW looks to avenge their only league defeat from last season when they take on American University in a round robin also featuring George Mason University. Both games will be at GMU's campus. Kickoff for the first game is scheduled for 2pm.
