George Mason (0-2) opened the season with back-to-back losses, dropping its season opener at Longwood (9-12) and its home opener against Brown (10-15). Rachel Obregon (4 g, 1 a) leads the Patriots through two games with five points, and Allie Hilderbrandt, Laura Lesky and Kirstin Russell have all chipped in three goals apiece.
