Here’s what you missed over the weekend in Georgia Southern Athletics...
GS defeated Georgia State on the road on Saturday to add another point in the rivalry series behind strong performances by the underclassmen. GS went into the half 1-0 after a kick from transfer PJ Amponsah bested the 6-foot-7 Panther goalkeeper in the 37th minute.
The GS defense held GSU scoreless until four minutes before the end of regulation and tied the game. GS kept fighting and stayed calm throughout the excitement. With 29 seconds of play remaining, freshman forward Asgeir Kristjansson got an assist from junior forward Adam Davie and made his first collegiate goal, which would turn out to be the game winner.
