GMHS Boys Unblemished Again, Claim 4th Straight Soccer Title

The George Mason High School boys varsity soccer team claimed the Bull Run District regular season title for the fourth consecutive year, doing so with an undefeated mark of 9-0-1. It was the third straight year that the Mustangs won the district without a loss on their record.

The feat was not an easy one however, as Mason needed a last-minute goal by Antonio Randrianasolo to edge rival Clarke County on the road last Thursday. The header by Randrianasolo in the 79th minute put the Mustangs ahead 4-3 and finally allowed Mason to put away a persistent foe that had answered each of its previous three goals with tallies of their own.

Senior goalie Eric Casteuble recorded five saves in the win, while senior striker Eddie Huber, who posted a four-goal effort just two days earlier, notched a pair of goals for the Mustangs.

Mason rounded out the regular season with a 1-0 win at Madison County on Monday, and a final 3-1 victory over Manassas Park at home on Tuesday.

The Mustangs now wait to host the winner of an opening round playoff game between Strasburg and Madison County at home on Tuesday, May 22. Should the Mustangs win, they will host the championship game as well.

The regular season title has already secured the Mustangs a spot in the Region B Tournament beginning after the conclusion of the Bull Run District championship.
