LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Georgia State men’s soccer team dropped a tough battle at No. 9 Louisville 1-0 Tuesday night at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.

GSU (0-2-0) struggled to generate much offense against the stingy Cardinal defense, finishing the night with only two total shots. Both shots – one from Hannes Burmeister and another from Liam Fitzsimmons – were on target but saved by the Louisville keeper.

The Cardinals (2-0-0), ranked ninth in the latest United Soccer Coaches poll, ended with 13 total shots and six on goal. Louisville scored the lone goal of the match in the fifth minute and was able to hold onto the lead for the remainder of the match.  

Georgia State is back in action 7 p.m. Saturday for its home-opener vs. Lipscomb at the GSU Soccer Complex. Live stats will be available at GeorgiaStateSports.com.
