NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Georgia State men’s soccer rolled to its fourth consecutive victory after knocking off Belmont 2-1 Tuesday night at E.S Rose Park.
The Panthers improved to 4-2-0 on the season while Belmont dropped to 0-4-1. Georgia State matched last season’s four-game winning streak and has an opportunity to string together five wins in a row for the second time under head coach Brett Surrency.
GSU controlled the possession for the majority of Tuesday’s match, beginning in the first half when the Panthers held Belmont to only two total shots after the match’s first 45 minutes. Georgia State had a few good looks midway through the first half but finally broke the scoreless tie in the 40th minute when a pass from Frank Rosenwald connected with Kwaku Adu-Boahene who finished for his first goal of the season.
George Proctor added to GSU’s lead in the 62nd minute off a free kick from about 30 yards out, also earning his first goal of the season. The Panthers continued to keep the pressure on the Belmont back line as Max Hemmings nearly gave Georgia State its third goal of the evening just a few minutes later.
The Bruins made a late push and cut the GSU lead in half with a goal in the 80th minute but were unable to scratch across the equalizer. The Panthers ended with 13 total shots and five on target while Belmont had only five total shots and two on goal.
