Men’s soccer freshman goalkeeper Eric Barnes, undecided major, was tabbed Brine Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Week on Sept. 26.

Barnes allowed just one goal in nearly 190 minutes of action last week at George Mason Stadium as Mason defeated La Salle University 3-1 on Sept. 20 and edged Pennsylvania State University 1-0 in overtime on Sept. 24. The freshman made a pair of saves in his first career shutout against the Nittany Lions and stopped three shots in the victory over La Salle. Barnes lowered his goals against average to 0.97 for the season.

This is the first conference Rookie of the Week honor for Mason in men’s soccer since the 2002 season.

The Patriots (4-3) next host Virginia Commonwealth University on Friday, Sept. 30, at 7 p.m. for Mason’s league opener.
