GW = DIVISION CHAMPS
GW Finishes 6-0 in division, ranked #5 in Region 1
The regular season, came to a close over Colonials Weekend with a thrilling 2-0 win over local rival, Georgetown. The combination of a night game and a huge crowd created one of the most intense atmospheres possible for a club game, and GW lived up to it's record. Having finished off divisional play a perfect 6-0, winning the Baltimore/Washington Division in the process, this game was just about local bragging rights. Freshman defender Haley Gray opened the scoring about 20min into the first half when a ball was only partially cleared and she sent it on net. The goal even surprised Haley herself. Sophomore Ali Valentin gets credit for the second goal, following a mad scramble for a loose ball in the box. It was Ali's second goal of the season. Credit for the assist was given to Kaitlyn Manning, marking her 7th helper of the season.
GW closed out the regular season with a record of 8-1, with 8 shutouts and a +23 goal differential, good enough to be ranked 5th in the Region 1 Power Rankings, behind Penn State, Delaware, Northeastern, and Rutgers.
We were given the 6th seed in the Regional Championship and were drawn into a group with Cornell, RIT, and West Virginia. It'll mark the second time in three seasons we'll be playing Cornell at Regionals, and our first ever encounter with both RIT and West Virginia.
