PC Preserves 1-0 First-Half Lead for Win
STATESBORO, Ga. - An early Presbyterian College goal wound up being the only scoring on the night as the Blue Hose held on for a 1-0 win over the Georgia Southern Men's Soccer team. The Eagles recorded 12 shots on goal but PC goal keeper James Neal made acrobatic saves to preserve the win at Edens Field at Martin Stadium.
Donald Gibson sent a long pass to Stephen Glover who headed the ball into the net at the 1:52 mark of the first half to give PC a 1-0 lead. The Eagles allowed only three other shots in the half and held the Blue Hose scoreless in the second period. Four Georgia Southern players had at least three shots on goal and two others had two each, but Neal had 12 saves on the night to turn away the Eagles' scoring attempts.
"We had some opportunities and on a good day we should have scored four or five goals," said Eagles Head Coach Kevin Kennedy. "We created several chances, but our finishing was poor. We have to give credit to their goalkeeper, he made some outstanding saves and they defended very well."
Georgia Southern (3-7-1, 0-3-0) continues with its next four matches on the road, beginning with College of Charleston Saturday, October 16th. The contest at Patriots Point Stadium is set to begin at 7 p.m.
