FAIRFAX, Va. – Vincent Bennage’s 30th minute score proved to be the difference as Davidson picked up three crucial points in the Atlantic 10 standings with a 1-0 blanking of George Mason Saturday afternoon.

The Wildcats conclude the conference portion of their schedule with 11 points, while improving to 8-6-2 overall and 3-3-2 in league play. The setback drops the Patriots to 2-12-1 and 0-7-0.

A freshman from Kenosha, Wisc., Bennage’s team-leading seventh goal of the 2021 fall campaign was set up by a through ball from midfielder Connor Smith. Maddux Reece was also credited an assist on the eventual game-winner.

Smith had a scoring chance of his own earlier in the opening half, but his right-footed rip caromed off the cross bar.

Junior goalkeeper Giacomo Piccardo was impressive for the Wildcats this afternoon recording five saves en route to his first shutout of the season.
