CLINTON, S.C.- The Georgia State men’s soccer team opened the first of a three-match road stretch with a 2-0 shutout of Presbyterian. Rashid Alarape scored the game-winner for the second match in-a-row and third time this season.
With the win, the Panthers improved to 5-3 and the Blue Hose fell to 2-4-1.
GSU opened the match strong on both sides of ball, holding Presbyterian to one shot while firing seven but two Blue Hose saves kept GSU off the board. Kwaku Adu-Boahene posted three shots in the first half to lead the team.
Georgia State came out of the half looking to get on the board first. Alarape put GSU up 1-0 halfway through the second half, scoring off a corner kick from Hannes Burmeister in the 61st minute. The senior forward put the game away at the 65-minute mark of another corner from Burmeister.
The Panthers outshot Presbyterian 19-2, with Alarape firing four.
"It was a great win against a tough opponent at a tricky venue," head coach Brett Surrency said. "The coaches at Presbyterian have done a great job turning the program around and we certainly had to earn the win tonight. Rashid has been big for us this season and we're excited to see his goal streak continue."
The team will return to the field Tuesday at College of Charleston. Live stats will be available at GeorgiStateSports.com.
