Fall 2014 Season is Under Way
On Sunday, Sept 7, we opened our season with a game at Lord Fairfax Community College. It didn't take long for the team to find it's grove and jumped out to an early lead 7 minutes into the game. The offensive pressure was relentless and the scoreboard read 7-0 at halftime. Senior Sarah Hilton recorded two of them, as did junior Nally Kinnane, one of which was directly from a free kick. Captain Nahal Poormasjedian headed home a perfect corner kick from Kaitlyn Manning for her first goal of the season. Kaitlyn added two additional assists in the first half as well. Sophomore Aly Kruse and freshman Danielle Mahar also found the back of the net before the break.
The second half saw a more possession-based approach from GW, but three other freshmen found their way onto the score sheet. Summer Rudish, Gaby Passos, and Olivia Dominquez all marked their debuts with goals. Olivia also recorded an assist and drew the foul that resulted in Nally's free kick goal. In goal, senior Amy O'Halloran had little to do, but came off her line well and provided a supporting outlet to her defense whenever needed and did come up with a big save midway through the second half to preserve the clean sheet. It was a great way to start the season.
Next up: Sept 20 @ Salisbury

Info about the team: The GW Women's Club Soccer team was founded in 2001 and since then we have grown into a fun and competitive team. We compete in a league during the fall against other schools in the area. For the past 4 years we have qualified for regionals and hope to do so again this year! During the fall we have practice 2-3 times during the week (two outdoor and sometimes one indoor) and games on the weekend. While we are a competitive we also like to have fun and do things as a team!
