[MARYLAND-GEORGE MASON] No. 11 Maryland ground out a 2-0 win over George Mason Tuesday night on a goal by sophomore defender London Woodberry -- his first collegiate goal -- and an own goal. The Terps have won three consecutive matches after going 1-1-1 to start the year.
 
Woodberry’s goal came when a ball played into the area by Matt Kassel ricocheted off his back past Mason keeper Sean Cote in the 55th minute.

On the second goal nine minutes later, Kassel’s drive didn’t reach Woodberry and instead bounced off a Patriot defender’s outstretched leg for an own goal.
 
The win avenged a 4-2 loss to GMU in Fairfax in 2009.
 
“We did not give them many scoring opportunities and our honesty and commitment was outstanding defensively,” Maryland coach Sasho Cirovski said.  “That’s a very good Mason team and we held them to very minimal opportunities. I think that’s the key. We’ve given up two soft goals this year and we want to minimize those opportunities and we are getting better defensively. ”
 
NOTE: Tuesday night’s contest against George Mason was officially Maryland’s 1,000th.  Maryland boasts a 615-305-80 record since the program's establishment in 1946.
