Patriots extend streak with weekend wins

In blowout fashion, the George Mason men’s soccer team (5-0) extended their season opening win streak with a 5-1 win over St. Peter’s (2-2) and a 3-2 win over St. Francis (1-4).

Despite changes on the defensive line from the 2011 season, the Patriots limited St. Peter’s scoring power Friday night. It wasn’t a difficult job since the Peacocks’ goals have overwhelmingly come from Noah Sadaoui in the early season. The defensive dominance was only a continuance from winning the D.C. College Cup only days before, allowing one goal in two wins.
