GW Men's Soccer hosts James Madison on Saturday in Final Preseason Tune-Up
Colonials Take on Dukes in Exhibition at 4 p.m.
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team concludes its preseason slate on Saturday when it hosts James Madison for a 4 p.m. exhibition at the GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.
The match represents the Colonials' final tune-up before they open the regular season next weekend at the annual Kuykenstrong D.C. College Cup at American University. GW will face host AU and district rival Howard on Friday, Aug. 29, and Sunday, Aug. 31, respectively.
James Madison fell to a nationally ranked UMBC team, 4-1, on Tuesday in its first preseason exhibition. The Dukes were picked to finish ninth in the Colonial Athletic Association preseason poll after posting a 6-10-1 overall record in 2013. JMU will be led by junior defender Bjarki Aðalsteinsson, who was named to the Preseason All-CAA team, and senior forward Josh Grant, who earned honorable mention. Both players garnered All-CAA second team accolades last season.
The Colonials and Dukes have faced off just twice in regular-season play - both GW victories - with the most recent meeting coming in 1975. GW and JMU have also met in preseason exhibitions in 2011 and 2013.
