WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's soccer squad defeated local-rival George Mason University Friday evening in the squad's annual spring charity game. The Hoyas downed the Patriots, 4-1, while raising almost $2,000 for Georgetown's Relay for Life which supports the American Cancer Society.

"It was a great event and a great night of soccer," said Georgetown Head Coach Brian Wiese. "Thanks go out the team, our fans and George Mason who helped raise funds for Relay for Life."

On the field, the Blue & Gray was dominant winning 4-1 with four players scoring goals. Junior Uche Onyeador (Sterling, Va./Potomac Falls), sophomore Andy Riemer (McLean, Va./Georgetown Prep), freshman Gabe Padilla (Sacramento, Calif./Jesuit) and classmate Steve Neumann (New Hope, Pa./Council Rock North) all found the back of the cage. The Hoyas were playing with a small squad as the seniors from the 2010 campaign were not on the roster.

Leading up to the event, the players and coaches had sold raffle tickets with the winner receiving an iPad 2. Various prizes were also raffled off throughout the event. Fans were asked to donate anything for admission and those purchasing a raffle ticket also received a complimentary burger and drink.

A number of local club teams were in attendance including groups from Annandale and McLean with some playing at halftime.

Georgetown is 3-0-1 in spring play with just one game remaining. The Hoyas will host Richmond at 1 p.m., at North Kehoe Field on Saturday. Following the game, the team will be hosting its annual banquet where all of the yearly award winners will be honored.
