Jimenez Leads American Past Bucknell, 3-0

October 25, 2003

LEWISBURG, Pa. - American University senior Anabel Jimenez (Kensington, Md./Bullis) scored two goals and assisted on AU's other score as she led the Eagles to a 3-0 victory over Bucknell. With the win, American now leads the Patriot League with 15 points. They are 5-1 in league play and 8-6-1 overall. Jimenez got things going early when she found freshman Christina Gonzalez (Valley Stream, N.Y./Valley Stream Central) open near the goal in the 17th minute. Jimenez delivered a perfect cross, and Gonzalez neatly tipped it pass the Bucknell goalie. The Eagles posted an 8-4 edge in shots in the first half, but neither team could get another score. However, Jimenez struck at 64:20 when she took advantage of a beautiful corner kick by Simone Konig (Gartringen, Germany/School of Economics in Boblingen). Konig had three shots on the day, with two being on goal. Jimenez finished up the scoring when she dribbled in on the right side and put it in on the far side of the net. It is the third time this season Jimenez has had at least five points. She had five against Youngstown State, and seven versus Navy. She has 10 goals on the season, tying her mark of last year. It is the seventh-best single-season in AU history. Her 28 points is the sixth best single-season. Lauren Wohl (Bel Air, Md./Bel Air/Bucknell) made a triumphant return to Bucknell. After spending her first two years at the school, she transferred to AU, and this afternoon she posted her fourth shutout of the season. She finished with two saves and faced five shots. Bucknell's Samantha Hecht had seven saves on 14 shots. Statistically the Eagles dominated. They held a 14-5 advantage in shots and a 4-1 edge in corner kicks.
