Men’s Soccer Player of the Week, Dan Ames.

George Mason University sophomore forward Dan Ames, undeclared major, was tabbed Brine Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Men’s Soccer Player of the Week. This is the second conference honor for the Patriots this season; freshman Eric Barnes was named Rookie of the Week on Sept. 26.

Ames scored both game-winning goals this past weekend as Mason posted league road victories over the University of Delaware (1-0) and Drexel University (3-2). The sophomore broke a scoreless tie at Delaware with his first goal of the season in the 73rd minute to secure Mason’s first conference win of the year. On Oct. 23, Ames shot the game-winning goal against the Dragons with 3:20 remaining.

Mason (6-5-4, 2-2-4 CAA) will return to action when the Patriots host Old Dominion University on Oct. 28 at 7 p.m. and the College of William & Mary on Oct. 30 at 1 p.m.
