Women’s soccer loses opener

GW’s women’s soccer team lost the first match of their season 3-1 to Rutgers University Saturday in Piscataway, N.J. The Colonials took a 1-0 lead after freshman Brittany Schornstein scored in her first collegiate game.

Next up for the young Colonials – whose starting goalie, Lindsey Rowe, is also a freshman – is their home opener Friday against Old Dominion University.

GW went 8-9-1 last year and did not qualify for the Atlantic 10 tournament.
