ATHENS, Ga. – Georgia State women’s soccer fell 2-0 to Georgia Friday night at the Turner Soccer Complex. Friday’s match was the first time since 2013 the Panthers had faced an opponent from the Southeastern Conference.
GSU dropped to 2-4-1 on the season while Georgia improved to 3-2-2 overall. The Panthers suffered their second loss in a row after a three-game stretch without a defeat at the end of August.
The Bulldogs struck first in the eighth minute of the match off a shot from about 20 yards out. Georgia later added to its lead in the 28th minute when a GSU foul in the box led to a successful penalty kick for UGA. The Panthers battled in the first half with five shots of their own – four of which were on target – but were unable to cut into the Georgia lead.
Georgia State ended Friday’s contest with six total shots and four on goal. Hannah Davis and Brooke Smith led the Panthers with two shots apiece. GSU goalkeeper Madi Card notched a season-high seven saves against the Bulldogs.
GSU returns to the pitch 1 p.m. Sunday vs. Vanderbilt at the GSU Soccer Complex. Fans can watch the game live on Georgia State’s official audio and video service PantherVision or follow along the action via live stats.
