GW Blanks Georgetown (again) in Final Tune-up Sunday afternoon, as Colonials Weekend came to an end, GW took the field in front of hundreds of friends and family members to battle Georgetown. This was the last game of the regular season, so the Colonials were looking to end on a high and build some momentum going into Regionals. And we did just that, shutting out the Hoyas for the second time this season!
A first half goal from freshman Sami Lyons put us up 1-0 at the break. Captain Aly Kruse received a pass and spun her defender like a top to create a 3-on-1 breakaway before slotting the pass across to Sami, who calmly placed the shot in the lower corner of the net. With only a few minutes remaining, and the score still 1-0, Aly was on the receiving end of a perfect cross from Kaitlyn Manning. Kait and sophomore defender Rachel Kahn worked a neat give-and-go overlap down the left wing before Kait whipped in her cross. Aly was able to beat the keeper to the ball and knocked it in with a volley. It was the second time Kait teed up Aly for a goal this season.
This week will be spent preparing for the Region 1 Championships, where GW will play Ithaca, Delaware, and Syracuse. GW last played Ithaca at Regionals in 2013, and has a long history of games against Delaware, but this will be the first time the Buff and Blue will square off against the Orange.

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 5 years we have qualified for regionals and will be going 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!
