ATLANTA – Georgia State women’s soccer concluded its non-conference slate with a 2-0 setback to in-state foe Georgia Sunday night at the GSU Soccer Complex.
The Panthers entered the weekend on a four-match unbeaten streak, outscoring its opponents 9-2, but dropped its final two non-conference matchups against in-state competition to close the non-conference schedule with a 3-4-1 record.
UGA controlled possession for the majority of Sunday’s contest, getting a number of clean looks at goal in the opening 20 minutes of the first half. The Bulldogs’ aggressive attack paid off in the 41st minute when Tori Wheeler belted her first goal of the year to give Georgia a 1-0 lead at the break.
Georgia owned an 11-1 advantage in total shots and a 5-0 lead in shots on target after 45 minutes of play.
The Bulldogs tacked on a second goal in the 50th minute after a cross met Mollie Belisle inside the box who knocked it in for the score. GSU was held to just one shot for the remainder of the night, a boot from Mikella Rodriguez in the closing minutes that flew wide right.
Georgia State is back in action for its conference opener 7 p.m. Friday against defending Sun Belt champion Little Rock at the GSU Soccer Complex.
