George Mason 1-0 Penn: Martinez hits winner

Playing in the first round of the NCAA tournament, the No. 20 Penn men's soccer team fell 1-0 to George Mason Friday night. The decision ended the Quakers' season at 11-3-4 while the Patriots advanced to face No. 2-seeded Maryland in the second round.

The Quakers battled through the first half, creating several opportunities, including a penalty kick by Omid Shokoufandeh which was saved by Mason's keeper Sean Kelley.

George Mason then had a penalty of its own saved when Penn keeper Drew Healy saved Irvin Martinez's attempt.

After a scoreless first half, George Mason's Eber Martinez found the range from 25 yards out.

The remaining minutes produced several chances for both teams, including several for Penn in the waning minutes. Shokoufandeh, Kevin Unger and Mike Klein all put shots on goal in the final two minutes, but it was not to be as the clock expired.

The loss ended the Quakers' 2008 season that saw Penn start the season on a seven-game shutout streak and go 10 games unbeaten. After a 5-1-1 Ivy League season, the Red and Blue took a share of the Ivy League title and its first NCAA bid since 2002.
