Alex Abnos: Windy times at 2140 G

A few weeks ago, I went on a bike ride down to the Tidal Basin to see the cherry blossoms. It was a warm, sunny day – one of the first we had after the six-month wet/cold/grey/windy bonanza our nation’s capital calls “winter.” On my way back, a strange feeling came over me. My baby […]

Slave to Style

Ashley Gosik is the villain. She hears about it every day. Posted by Cleopatra on Gosik’s blog – Monday, April 6, 2009, 5:03 p.m. Hi Ashley, You honestly gross me out. So if you pride yourself in being the villain then have fun growing old and alone … I hope you get punched right in […]

Women’s lacrosse falls despite Donohue’s dominance

It’s a new year and a new women’s lacrosse season, but GW’s team still seems to be dealing with the same problems. Last year, the Colonials had repeated troubled coming out of the gate in matches, falling behind early multiple times en route to a losing season. In Sunday’s season opener against Ohio State, it […]

Soccer kept out of playoffs

This was it. With just 30 seconds left in their final home game against St. Bonaventure, the GW men’s soccer team had one last chance to even the 2-1 score line. A draw would put them in the A-10 tournament. A loss, and the season was over. Even goalkeeper Matt Scheer sprinted forward, looking for […]

Men’s soccer back in playoff hunt with win

At the beginning of the season, GW men’s soccer coach George Lidster commented that his team would have to “learn how to win away” if they wanted to be successful in the ultra-competitive Atlantic 10 Conference. Judging by Saturday’s 3-0 win at Richmond, his players seem to have grasped the concept. The game was the […]

Men’s soccer to face Spiders

For the GW men’s soccer team, it’s getting down to the wire. After enduring a grueling schedule that saw them play 11 of their first 14 games on the road, the Colonials must travel one last time with more at stake than ever. Richmond, their opponent on Saturday, is a team on the rise. After […]

Men’s soccer loses ground

It’s been an up-and-down week for the GW men’s soccer team. Just seven days ago, the Colonials were riding high after big home victories against Temple and St. Joseph’s. But the team struggled to replicate the same form away from home this weekend, losing 2-0 to Massachusetts Sunday and battling to a 1-1 draw with […]

Soccer still on top without Stadler

Men’s soccer coach George Lidster’s plan going into this weekend’s games was relatively simple: Score goals. On Sunday, it got a bit harder: Score goals without leading scorer Andy Stadler. After netting two goals and assisting on another in GW’s 5-2 win over Temple on Friday, Stadler rolled his ankle and was promptly substituted out […]

Men’s soccer winless in two physical Ohio matches

In their two games in Ohio this weekend, the GW men’s soccer team managed 30 shots overall. Of those 30, only nine were on goal. Of those nine, only one was successful. And that one was off a penalty kick. For head coach George Lidster, that’s just not good enough. “We’ve dried up in front […]
