ATLANTA - The Georgia State women’s soccer team will look to continue its current winning streak with a home match against UT Martin on Friday.
The Panthers (3-3) will take on the Skyhawks (3-4-1) at 7 p.m. following the Georgia State men’s soccer team’s match against Georgia Southern at 4 p.m.
This is only the second ever meeting between Georgia State and UT Martin. The first meeting came in 2011 and the Skyhawks came out on top with a 2-0 victory. Georgia State will look to tie up the head-to-head record with a victory Friday night.
The Panthers are currently on a two-game winning streak, with wins at home against Mercer and on the road at Georgia Southern. The Friday night match against UT Martin will be the only the game this weekend Georgia State will play.
“We are excited for Friday night’s double-header of Georgia State soccer,” coach Derek Leader said. “There are going to be a lot of people at the GSU Soccer Complex between the two games, and we are ready to follow up our two recent wins with another one. It will be nice to play at home before leading into the conference and several road matches. The girls have been training hard and are ready to go.”
Following Friday’s match, the team will have a one week break before embarking on a two-game road trip. On Friday, Sept. 21, Georgia State will travel to Boston to take on Northeastern and on Sunday the Panthers will visit Hempstead, N.Y., to take on Hofstra.
The men’s soccer team will take on Georgia Southern at 4 p.m., followed by the women’s soccer team against UT Martin at 7 p.m. on Friday. Admission, as always, is free for matches at the GSU Soccer Complex.
