Adjeman-Pamboe's Pair of Goals Leads George Mason Past Georgia State
Oct. 25, 2008
ATLANTA, Ga. - Two goals by senior forward Kwame Adjeman-Pamboe in a span of 5:05 in the first half was enough to lead the George Mason men's soccer team to a 2-0 victory over the Georgia State Panthers on Saturday evening in Atlanta, Ga. With the win, the Patriots snapped a streak of three consecutive matches without a win and improved to 7-6-2 overall and 3-4-1 in the CAA.
The offensive effort of Adjeman-Pamboe single-handedly dropped Georgia State's record to 4-7-4 overall and 0-5-3 in conference matches. The senior scored his first goal 15:56 into the match to give the Patriots the early 1-0 lead. Adjeman-Pamboe struck again a little more than five minutes later when he found the back of the net off an assist from senior forward Lucas Pardew to put the Patriots ahead by two goals.
After taking the early lead, the George Mason defense took control, holding the Panthers without a single score, and a total of only nine shots the entire evening. After not appearing in the past two matches, junior goalkeeper Sean Kelley returned with an impressive effort, recording his fifth shutout of the season. Kelley finished with four saves in 90 minutes in goal.
Kelley's counterpart, Filipe Carvalho, notched eight saves in 90 minutes in a losing effort. Carvalho was under constant pressure as Mason took a total of 18 shots in the match.
The Patriots return to Fairfax on Wednesday, Oct. 29 to face the Drexel Dragons in a 7 p.m. Colonial Athletic Association matchup at George Mason Stadium.
