The SMU men's soccer team, ranked #19 in the nation in the Soccermogul Top 30, kicked off the season in convincing fashion Friday afternoon, shutting out #13 Old Dominion, 2-0, in the first game of the University of Virginia Classic in Charlottesville, Virginia.  The teams battled to a scoreless draw in the first half, but it didn't take long after the intermission for the Mustangs to get what proved to be the only goal they would need. Freshman midfielder/forward Arthur Ivo put the Ponies ahead to stay in the 47th minute, when he one-touched a cross from the left side past ODU goalkeeper Michael Roura.

Fellow freshman Ryan Rosenbaum added an insurance goal for the Mustangs, converting assists from seniors Jeff Harwell and Paulo da Silva and scoring from 12 yards out.   The Mustangs had the edge in virtually every statistical category, including a 12-3 margin in shots, and an 8-1 edge after the halftime intermission. Junior SMU goalkeeper Craig Hill earned the second shutout of his career.

The Mustangs will return to the field Sunday evening, when they play the host Virginia Cavaliers at 7 p.m. (central time).
