GSU Men’s Soccer Falls 5-0 To Jacksonville
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Georgia Southern Men’s Soccer suffered a tough 5-0 defeat on Saturday night at Jacksonville. The Eagles fall to 2-6-0 on the year while Jacksonville improves to 1-6-1.
“We are all very disappointed with the result today,” said head coach Kevin Kennedy. “We’ve got to figure out a way to play better defensively in order to get better results.”
Georgia Southern finished the night even with the Dolphins in shooting with 15 shots each. Only one Eagle chance was credited on goal while eight JU shots were on frame.
Jacksonville struck twice in the first half, scoring in the 10th and 33rd minutes to gain a 2-0 lead.
The Eagles fought back earning chances in the attacking third on both sides of the halftime interval. GSU took a hit when Nick Lane was awarded a pair of yellow cards in the 50th and 60th minutes, making the Eagles finish the contest with just 10 players.
JU added three more goals in the 63rd, 70th and 81st minutes as the Eagles pushed forward for counterattacks.
Georgia Southern travels to Presbyterian College on Wednesday evening for a 6 p.m. contest against the Blue Hose.
