George Mason University’s women’s soccer team will take on the Virginia Military Institute’s Keydets this Wednesday.

After their 1-0 defeat at the hands of the United States Naval Academy on Sunday and their overtime loss to Mount St. Mary’s on Tuesday, the Patriots need a “W” to recover.

In the fall 2009 preseason, the Patriots conquered VMI with a 3-0 victory and hopefully will do the same on Wednesday. With a record of 0-3, VMI should not pose a serious threat to the Patriots. But because of their recent losing streak, the Patriots should not get too comfortable.

Senior defender Kimmy Moss said, “Considering our match against VMI will be our fifth game in 11 days, I think the team will definitely be a little tired.”

“But with that said,” said Moss, “It’s going to be hard for any team to play well against us because we’ve developed such great chemistry on the field in such a short period of time. In front of a home crowd, I see no reason why it should be anything less than a great game for us.”

Since this is the second home game of the season, the Patriots might just need the home team advantage to regain their confidence.
