Belmont’s men’s soccer fought hard to get its first win of the season against Georgia State Tuesday night, but the team ultimately fell short and lost 2-1.
Georgia State came out strong and dominated the first half with nearly double the amount of shots on goal. Freshman Ramon Munoz scored Georgia State’s first goal with an assist from junior Frank Rosenwald.
The first half ended after a desperate shot on goal by Belmont, leaving the score at 1-0.
The Bruins tried to come back in the second half, but a free kick by Georgia State sophomore George Proctor bounced off of Belmont’s crossbar for the Panther’s second goal.
After struggling to catch up with Georgia State throughout the second half, the Bruins finally broke through with a goal from freshman Ares Marlonsson in the 80th minute.
In the end it wasn’t enough, and Georgia State came out on top with a final score of 2-1.
The Bruins are now 0-4-1 overall and will look for their first win against Memphis on Saturday.
