Men’s soccer falls to Hokies

Looking only at the statistics, one might not guess that the GW men’s soccer team could have scoring problems. After all, the team averages two goals per game, has yet to be shut out and went into Tuesday’s game at Virginia Tech having scored five goals in their last three match-ups, all away from home. […]

Stadler keeps record pace, powers GW comeback

It was starting to look like “one of those games.” Late in the first half, after conceding a goal and squandering scoring chances, the men’s soccer team (4-2-1) needed to bolster its attack Saturday at Mount St. Mary’s. Lucky thing that head coach George Lidster had an ace in the hole. Returning to the field […]

Soccer wins with two from Stadler

By almost any measure, junior striker Andy Stadler has been the number one story of the 2008 GW men’s soccer season, and deservingly so. The Milwaukee native has been in sparkling form so far, averaging a goal per game heading into Saturday’s 2-0 win at American. But by halftime against the Eagles, it was the […]

Men’s soccer hits road, tops Navy

For an average-height, average-weight player, the GW men’s soccer team’s striker Andy Stadler is incredibly easy to point out. For starters, there is his dirty blonde hair – poofy enough to be considered an afro on the right day. Then there is his demeanor. Riding to the game, Stadler listens to music – mainly old-school […]

GW solid on both sides of ball in victory

Hitting the road was not a fun occurrence for the GW men’s soccer team last season – the Colonials managed just one win in seven attempts away from Foggy Bottom. This year, GW plays 12 games away from the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex, including a six-game road stint that started Tuesday. But thanks to some […]

Men’s soccer can’t stand the heat

It’s hard to blame GW men’s soccer coach George Lidster for staying in the locker room a little longer than usual during halftime of Saturday’s 3-1 loss to 23rd-ranked Loyola (Md.) at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex on the program’s Alumni Day. For one thing, it was unseasonably hot, with temperatures pushing a humid 90. […]

Women’s soccer held scoreless

Until Friday, it would not have been much of a stretch to dub the GW women’s soccer team the “cardiac kids” of the Atlantic 10. In their season-opening 3-1 loss to Rutgers, all three of their opponents’ goals came with less than 25 minutes remaining. Then the Colonials experienced a double dose of last-minute drama […]

Men’s soccer picks up draw with George Mason

All the GW men’s soccer team needed against George Mason was a little luck. Battling the elements Friday, that’s just what they got. The Colonials kicked off their season with a 1-1 draw against the Patriots, squeaking out a tie with a fortunate equalizer less than a minute after GMU scored its goal. The game […]

Prized recruit gives men’s soccer hope despite daunting schedule

When it came to choosing a college, freshman soccer player Brice Carr had a lot of options. A native of Milwaukee, Carr spent his senior year of high school at the prestigious IMG Soccer Academy in Bradenton, Fla., – the same place that produced U.S. soccer stars Landon Donovan, DaMarcus Beasley and Freddy Adu. When […]
