Last Sundays NCAA Second Round Match versus George Mason University was an exciting one….more exciting than it needed to be. We came out strong from the kickoff, created quality chances and dominated possession. 19-4 advantage in shots and lots of opportunities. It took us 83 minutes to find the net, but we were patient and defended well throughout. Calderon to Hansen to Rogers for the goal: 1-0 with the Lobos advancing to the NCAA 3rd Round.
The highly anticipated episode of "Fish Off The Pitch" with special guest Savva Biller filmed today and will air tonight.
