Ga., Oct. 23, 2011 - A goal by redshirt senior Jimmy Simpson (Warrenton, Va./Fauquier)
lifted the 20th-ranked James

JMU, which won its third game in a row, upped its record to 11-2-1 overall. The Dukes remained tied with Old Dominion for first place in the league standings with a 7-1-0 record.

JMU redshirt senior goalkeeper Justin Epperson (Herndon, Va./Oakton) made five saves to earn his eighth shutout of the season.
