EMERSON, Ga.- The Georgia State men’s soccer team fell 1-0 to Belmont Tuesday night at the LakePoint Sporting Complex.

With the loss, the Panthers fell to 3-3 and the Bruins improved to 2-0-2.

Belmont scored on GSU early, with Matteo Bennati scoring what proved to be the game-winner at the one-minute mark.

The Panthers attempted to find the equalizer going into the half, taking four shots to the Bruins’ three. Following halftime, Georgia State took seven more shots but four Belmont saves kept the team out of the net.

Kyle Clinton, Nenad Smiljanic, and Rashid Alarape all took two shots against the Bruins, with Smiljanic and Alarape putting both on target. Both teams fired 10 shots, with Georgia State putting six on target.

“When you’re not prepared to play the game, you lose against teams like this,” head coach Brett Surrency said. “Today we weren’t prepared to play and full credit goes to Belmont for taking advantage of that.”

The team will be back on the field Saturday night as they face Winthrop at the GSU Soccer Complex. Kickoff is at 7 p.m., with live stats available at GeorgiaStateSports.com. Admission and parking are free.
