ATLANTA – Georgia State women’s soccer aims to earn back-to-back victories in conference play and get back into the race for a spot in the Sun Belt tournament, as the Panthers host ULM Friday for Senior Night at the GSU Soccer Complex.
GSU (3-9-1, 1-4) returns to the pitch after knocking off Troy 3-2 Sunday, getting the game-winning goal from senior midfielder Brooke Smith in the 87th minute. Also scoring for Georgia State in the win was Lily Barron and Brooke Shank, who notched her fourth goal of the season – the third most goals for a Sun Belt player this year.
The Panthers will hold a pregame ceremony to honor its four seniors, Madi Card, Monique Hundley, Caitlin Ray and Smith. The group leads a GSU squad that enters the weekend ranked third in the conference in total shots (147) and fourth in total saves (58).
ULM (0-12-0, 0-5) looks to earn its first win of the season in Friday’s match against Georgia State. The Warhawks lead the Sun Belt with 96 saves, with freshman keeper Bree Truscott averaging a conference-high 7.57 saves per match.
Friday will be the sixth meeting between GSU and ULM, with the Panthers hold a 4-1-0 lead in the all-time series. Georgia State has won its last three matches against the Warhawks, including a 1-0 shutout during the 2017 campaign.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Friday at the GSU Soccer Complex. Fans can follow along via live stats at GeorgiaStateSports.com.
