ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – The St. Bonaventure University men's soccer team fell to George Washington, 1-0, following a late goal Wednesday night at the Marra Athletics Complex.
George Washington (3-7-1, 1-2 Atlantic 10) was able to breakthrough in the 74th minute off the foot of Tom Cooklin, giving the Colonials a 1-0 lead. That turned out to be all the visitors would need.
It was a slow first half for both teams as the game remained scoreless through the first 45 minutes of the contest.
The Bonnies (2-8, 0-4) were able to muster just three shots in the first half. Isaac Boamah had the best chance of the first half for the Brown and White in the 12th minute. The sophomore corralled the ball off a rebound and ripped a shot that hit off the inside of the right post and out, keeping the game at zeroes.
In the 24th minute, Boamah found himself in a one-on-one with the GW goalkeeper, but he pushed the shot just wide. In the 28th minute, Jacob Dyck found himself in front of the net with a shot of his own but could not finish.
Trevor Wilson made five saves in net for the Bonnies. Boamah led the Bona offense with two shots and Dyck added a shot of his own.
The Bonnies are back on the road Saturday, Oct. 12 when they visit Dayton. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
