"I think we played probably some of our best soccer all year,'' Ragle said. "[Capital has] a great keeper and she kept them in the game.''
Newhouse finished with 12 saves for the Cougars (10-11-1).
"The first half we kept it close,'' said Capital coach Riley Gibson, who lost two players to injury Saturday. "George Washington has a solid squad. We just didn't have the best of days.
"Injuries killed us. We had two or three that just got back here in the last two or three days. So hopefully we can rebuild. Three of my seniors are starters from the last four years and they're hard to replace. Capital will be on the rise in the next few years.''
The Patriots also had four players leave Saturday's game with injuries.
"I hope it's just some nicks and bruises,'' said Ragle. "We're going to have to take Monday and Tuesday and rest up. We'll go with who we have Wednesday.''
Taylor Ellis said GW is prepared no matter what is thrown in its path.
"We're passing better, we're moving better and we're moving as a unit,'' she said. "We're doing great. I'm so proud of us.''
