George Mason’s Girls Soccer team clinched the Virginia Region B Championship on Friday with a 2 to 1 victory over Clark County High School and are headed to the State Tournament to try for their fourth straight State Champion title. Meanwhile the Boys lost to their new rival Manassas Park High School 2 to 1, but will nonetheless also continue to the State Tournament in pursuit of their third straight State title.

The Lady Mustangs’ victory over Clark County was their fourth this season and followed a tense District Championship match that was marred by a controversial red card against Mason. The call was reversed on appeal.

They will play the quarterfinals round of the State Tournament on Tuesday night, June 7, at home against Northampton High School.

The Boys fell to Manassas Park for the third straight time, after beating them 1 to 0 early in the season. As runner-up in Region B, George Mason will travel to Northampton for the quarterfinals game at 6pm on June 7.

Though George Mason had never lost to Manassas Park before this year, the two teams have quickly become fierce rivals, playing some great soccer. Manassas Park has now claimed the Bull Run District and Region B titles by beating George Mason. With two victories in State play, the Mustangs might have another shot at Manassas Park in the State Finals.
