Eagles Drop 3-0 Result to Georgia State
ATLANTA – Georgia Southern Men’s Soccer fell 3-0 to Georgia State on Friday afternoon at the Georgia State Sports Complex. The match opened a seven-game road swing for the Eagles who travel to Wake Forest on Tuesday evening.
“I was most disappointed with how poorly we defended today,” said head coach Kevin Kennedy. “We’ve got to work on not conceding goals. All credit to Georgia State today, but we’ve got to quit giving goals away.”
Georgia State got off to an early 2-0 lead with back-to-back goals by William Mellors-Blair. He scored in the 10th minute on the first shot of the match, chipping the ball into the net off a low cross. The Englishman scored again in the 23rd minute with a running left-footed shot from 15 yards into the upper 90.
The Panthers scored a third goal in the 31st minute from Peter Vania to go 3-0 up on the Eagles with just under an hour left to play.
Georgia Southern recorded five shots in the match with two on frame. Joe Hughes was credited with two shots, one on frame. The Eagles fall to 2-4-0 on the season while Panthers improve to 3-2-0.
The Eagles continue their seven-game road swing next week with trips to Wake Forest on Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. and Jacksonville on Saturday night at 7 p.m.
