GW Men's Soccer Falls to George Mason, 2-0
Colonials Conclude Regular Season With Two Games Next Weekend
Nov. 3, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to Atlantic 10 newcomer George Mason on Sunday afternoon at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
Reigning A-10 Co-Player of the Week Jannik Eckenrode gave the visiting Patriots (9-2-3, 4-0-2 A-10) the lead in the 19th minute as he collected a pass from teammate Timi Mulgrew, dribbled around a defender and put his shot in the left side of the net.
Mason's lead stood at 1-0 until Mulgrew struck with 41 seconds left, carrying the ball from 40 yards out and tucking his shot into the left side past GW junior goalie Luke Farrell. Julio Arjona was credited with the assist.
GW (5-8-2, 2-2-2 A-10) took the first two shots of the game, including a hard shot from senior Alex Sandland in the 11th minute, but it went right to the keeper. Freshman Angel Valencia also had a good attempt on a header at the end of the first half, but it too found the hands of Mason goalie Steffen Kraus.
The Patriots outshot the Colonials 19-4 and held a 4-3 edge in corner kicks. Farrell recorded two saves in net, as just four of Mason's 19 shots were on goal. Kraus stopped two shots for the visitors.
The Colonials return to action on Friday when they host Atlantic 10 rival Saint Joseph's at 1 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
