WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's soccer team kicks off its final homestand of the season on Sunday when it hosts Revolutionary Rival and Atlantic 10 newcomer George Mason in an important conference match. Kickoff is set for 12 p.m. at GW Soccer Field on the Mount Vernon Campus.

GW (5-7-2, 2-1-2 A-10) and Mason (7-2-3, 2-0-2 A-10) are currently tied for fourth place in the A-10 standings with eight points. The Patriots will host Rhode Island on Friday before making the short trip to GW. The top eight teams at the end of the season advance to the Atlantic 10 Championship hosted by Dayton.

The Colonials extended their A-10 unbeaten streak to four games last Friday with a 2-1 double-overtime win over Rhode Island before falling to Massachusetts, 2-1, on Sunday. Freshman Tobi Adewole was named Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week after scoring the equalizer at URI with just 43 seconds left, then setting up sophomore Eddie Painter's game-winner in the fifth minute of the second overtime period.

Junior goalkeeper Luke Farrell ranks third in the A-10 with a 0.71 goals-against average in conference games, as his four goals allowed in 504:23 of action spanning five games are tied for the third-fewest in the league.

Senior Tyler Ranalli is tied for fourth in the A-10 with six goals and fifth with 15 points, and sophomore Jonny Forrest's three game-winning goals are tied for the second-most in the league. Nine different players have scored a goal for the Colonials this season and 13 have tallied at least one point.

George Mason is unbeaten in its last five games dating to Sept. 28 and is coming off a 1-1 double-overtime draw with La Salle. The reigning Atlantic 10 Co-Player of the Week, Jannik Eckenrode leads the Patriots with 10 points on four goals and two assists, while Wes Sever has also scored four goals. Goalie Steffen Kraus leads the A-10 and ranks 13th in the nation with a 0.63 goals-against average. He is also tied for second in the league with six shutouts. Mason has allowed just two goals against conference opponents and a league-low eight on the year.

Sunday's match marks the 37th all-time meeting between GW and George Mason but their first as conference foes.
