GW Loses Home-Opener to George Mason, 2-0
Biss Ties Season High with Seven Saves for the Colonials
Sept. 25, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - Junior Derek Biss tied his season high with seven saves, but the Colonials (1-5-1) lost their 2004 home-opener to George Mason, 2-0, on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex. It was the fourth straight loss for GW, which began the season 1-1-1.
Biss played all 90 minutes in the contest and kept the Colonials in the game, making four saves in the second half. He leads GW with 28 stops on the season.
The two teams spent the first half feeling each other out as neither squad could get much going offensively. George Mason's Matt Mendy gave the Patriots a 1-0 advantage in the second half when he knocked in the rebound off a Teba McKnight shot at 67:57. Biss kept the score 1-0, making consecutive saves on shots by GMU's David Quinn and Josh Fleming in the 73rd minute.
GW sophomore Joseph Siegel had a chance to tie the match in the 81st minute, but missed the net wide with a shot from inside the box. Mendy put the game out of reach 22 seconds later with his second goal of the day at 81:54. The senior beat two GW defenders on the play and slipped the shot just inside the far post to give the Patriots a two-goal victory.
Junior Andre Chapman paced the GW offense with three shots, while Mendy led the Patriots with five.
George Mason (4-3-0) outshot GW, 18-13, and the Patriots owned the edge in corner kicks as well, 7-5
John O'Hara made four saves in goal for George Mason to earn the win.
The Colonials return to the pitch on Friday, Oct. 1 when they begin Atlantic 10 play at La Salle. The match is scheduled for 3:00 p.m.
