ATLANTA- The Georgia State women’s soccer team played to a 0-0 double overtime draw against Louisiana Sunday afternoon. Freshman Meagan Postell led the team’s offensive effort, firing five shots with two on target.
With the tie, the Panthers are now 3-7-2 (1-3-1 SBC) and the Ragin’ Cajuns are 5-5-2 (2-1-2 SBC).
GSU fired 11 shots in the first half, with just one on target. Senior Brie Haynes kept Louisiana off the board with three saves, putting the score at 0-0 going into halftime.
The Panthers created a lot of chances in the second half, but the Ragin Cajun defense kept GSU from converting. The teams posted a combined eight saves to force an overtime, the second for Georgia State this season.
“The girls worked very hard today to create a lot of opportunities, but obviously we needed one to go in,” head coach Ed Joyce said. “It wasn’t our day in front of the goal, 25 shots is a lot to generate but we have to hit the target better. The girls worked hard so we will build and get ready for Coastal Carolina.”
The team will return to the field next weekend for the first match in a three-game road stretch at Coastal Carolina.
