The George Mason University women’s soccer team, ranked fifth in the NSCAA Mid-Atlantic Region Polls, will continue their conference tune-up when they host the Northeastern Huskies. The game will be played at George Mason Stadium at 2 p.m.

The team is off to a great start with its young roster, winning eight of the first nine games.

Redshirt junior midfielder Omolyn Davis leads the team with six goals and has 14 points. Davis is among two other players with 14 points, which includes senior forward Kelly Keelan and freshman forward Tiana Kallenberger.

Keelan has four goals and six assists while Kallenberger has three goals and five assists. Fellow freshman goalkeeper Katie Frey earned the CAA Rookie of the Week this week.

Of Mason’s eight victories, four of them have come from playing at home, that stat propelled by the fact that Mason has not given up an opposing team’s goal at home. With the exception of Mason’s 3-1 loss to the Pennsylvania Quakers, Mason has been terrific so far in the 2009 season. However, Mason could be facing its toughest game of the season this Sunday when they take on the third-ranked Huskies.

Freshman Devin Pets is the team leader with four goals, two assists, and 10 points. The Huskies also have only have one senior on the roster to go along with their nine freshmen. The Huskies are 5-2, in which three of the five victories are all at home, but are 1-2 on the road. This matchup is favorable for Mason because of their experience and Northeastern’s struggles on the road.
