Posted: Updated:

The UVa men's soccer team snapped a 2-game losing skid beating George Mason 3-0 Tuesday night at Klockner Stadium.

The 'Hoos got goals from each of their starting forwards, Ryan Zinkhan and Darius Madison, and Brian James came off the bench to score Virginia's second goal of the game.

Virginia opened the scoring in the 14th minute on Zinkhan's goal.   Virginia led 2-0 at halftime.  The Cavaliers outshot the Patriots 17-6 in the game.

"I think it was a good performance for us against a solid George Mason team," Virginia head coach George Gelnovatch said. "I think Mason is a playoff team. To be honest, we have been playing this level of soccer throughout the year. I think tonight we took some chances, we finished our chances and we were pretty resolute in defending. I think our perseverance and belief in ourselves showed through tonight."

Virginia improves to 2-3 with the win.  The 'Hoos play their ACC home opener Friday night against NC State.
