NASHVILLE, Tenn.- The Georgia State men’s soccer team fell in a tough overtime loss at Lipscomb Saturday night.
With the loss, the Panthers fell to 3-2 and the Bison improved to 3-2.
Both teams kept the ball at the midfield to open the match, with just eight total shots taken in the first 45 minutes. GSU led the first half shot count 5-3, with senior Rashid Alarape firing three with two on target.
The match went into the match scoreless, and Panthers looked to get on the board before Lipscomb. GSU fired eight shots, but two Bison saves kept the team out of the net. Senior Yannic Horn made three saves to keep the score even and force overtime.
Georgia State and Lipscomb both took one shot in extra minutes, but a rebound off a Panther save made it into the net and ended the match.
“We’re disappointed in the result and our overall execution but not the effort,” head coach Brett Surrency said. “We knew Lipscomb would be a tough opponent and they were certainly that. Hats off to them for getting the win.”
GSU will return home on Tuesday night to host Belmont. Live stats will be available at GeorgiaStateSports.com and a live stream will be available on PantherVision.
