ATLANTA – Georgia State women’s soccer wrapped up its two-match slate against SEC opponents Sunday afternoon, as the Panthers fell to Vanderbilt 3-0 at the GSU Soccer Complex. GSU was able to compete against two top-tier programs in Georgia and Vanderbilt, garnering valuable experience for much of the roster heading into conference play.
The loss dropped Georgia State to 2-5-1 on the season while Vanderbilt won its seventh straight match to improve to 7-1-0 on the year. The Commodores extended their streak of four consecutive shutouts to five on Sunday.
Vanderbilt got on the board first in the 19th minute off a header from the left side of the box. GSU’s Monique Hundley launched the only shot for the Panthers in the first half at the 26-miunte mark but the attempted equalizer sailed wide.
The Commodores added two more goals in the first 15 minutes of the second half, one on a penalty kick in the 51st minute and another in the 61st minute. GSU made a late push to cut into the Vanderbilt lead, but shots from Hundley, Arianah Black and Samantha Jacob all flew wide. Hundley led the Panthers with two total shots.
Despite the loss, Georgia State freshman keeper Lydia Fraga notched a season-high seven saves against the Commodores. Sunday was the second straight match the Panthers’ keepers have notched seven saves against SEC opponents.
Georgia State returns to action 7 p.m. Friday for its Sun Belt opener against in-state rival Georgia Southern at the GSU Soccer Complex. Fans can watch the game live on GSU official audio and video service PantherVision or follow along via live stats.
