BLACKSBURG, Va., Aug. 24, 2012 -- The James Madison men's soccer team out-shot Richmond 14-5, but the Spiders converted their first shot of the game and held off the Dukes for a 1-0 win Friday in the Hokie Invitational.

Timmy Albright scored for the Spiders just 7:25 into the match, and that was enough to give UR the win.

UR goalkeeper Thomas Hand made five saves to get the shutout.  Hand made one stop on a shot by sophomore Boyd Reid (Ajax, Ontario/Pickering) in the closing seconds of the game.

Dukes redshirt junior goalkeeper Colin Newcity (Harrisonburg, Va./Harrisonburg) had one save.

Four of JMU's starting 11 were in the Dukes' starting lineup for the first time in their college careers.

It was the season-opening game for both teams.

JMU next faces Southern Illinois-Edwardsville in a noon game Sunday in the final round of the Hokie Invitational.  SIUE beat Virginia Tech 3-1 in Friday's other game in the Hokie Invitational.
