GW Men's Soccer Welcomes Montgomery College for Tuesday Exhibition
Colonials Host Raptors for Second Match in Three Days
Aug 19, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team returns to the pitch for the second time in three days on Tuesday when it hosts nearby Montgomery College in an exhibition at 4 p.m. at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
The scrimmage will serve as the Colonials' lone preseason tune-up at home.
GW played Duke to a scoreless draw on Sunday in an exhibition match in Durham, N.C. Sophomore goalkeeper Jean-Pierre van der Merwe made two saves in the shutout, and senior Bailey Hinners took three of the Colonials' four shots.
Montgomery College opens its preseason slate against GW on Tuesday. The Raptors went 18-4-2 last season, falling in the NJCAA Division III national championship game to Herkimer Community College. MC was led offensively by freshmen Mohammad Oulare (14g, 8a) and Nick Castro (5g, 13a), while freshman goalkeeper Serigne Baba Gaye posted a 0.74 goals-against average and an .855 save percentage in 1,342 minutes.
The Colonials return 15 letterwinners and eight starters from the 2012 squad while welcoming 10 newcomers. Under the direction of second-year Head Coach Craig Jones, GW will look to improve on last season's 5-13-0 overall record.
Following Tuesday's match, the Colonials close out the preseason on Saturday with a 5 p.m. exhibition at James Madison. GW opens its season on Friday, Aug. 30 against American at the annual D.C. College Cup hosted by George Mason University.
