September 24, 2000

BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech women's soccer team shutout the George Washington Colonials, 2-0, Sunday afternoon.

Freshman Emily Barnhart (Columbus, Ohio) scored both goals for Virginia Tech in the first half of play. The first came on a shot 15 yards away from the goal at the 9:47 mark in the match. Barnhart knocked the shot into the upper left corner of the goal past George Washington goalkeeper Christine O'Malley. There was no assist on the play.

Barnhart's second goal of the contest came at the 17:36 mark in the match. After Tech was awarded a free kick, junior Carmen Chestnut (Mt. Pleasant, S.C.) fed the ball to Barnhart who scored off a header.

Two Hokies split time in goal for the match. Junior Shannon Janko (Southboro, Mass.) started the match for Tech and recorded four saves. She was relieved by senior Karen Crawley (Chester, Va.) who kept the shutout intact with six saves of her own.

Tech tallied 26 shots, four corners and 12 fouls in the match. George Washington totaled 19 shots, four corners and seven fouls.

The win leaves the Hokies with a 5-7 record on the year. They will be back in action Friday when they travel to Philadelphia, Pa., to take on St. Joseph's.
