Appalachian State University men’s soccer played Georgia Southern closely, but fell by a final score of 1-0. The Mountaineers’ (3-4-6, 1-3-1) Danny Free (Doncaster, England/Hall Cross School) made the start
in net and made a season-high eight saves in the contest. Free now has 54 saves on the season to give him 181 saves for his career.
Both teams were scoreless in the first half of play with the Eagles outshooting the Mountaineers six to four.
Georgia Southern (5-8-0, 1-3-0) was able to put the only tally on the board in the 68th minute of the game. The Eagles’ Hunter Norton dished a pass to Roberto Lopez who was able to find an open pocket in the Appalachian defense and struck a ball from 25 yards out past Free.
App State had to play the last 16 minutes of the game down a man when Harrison Delbridge (Raleigh, N.C./Needham Broughton) picked up his second yellow card of the match. The Mountaineers followed that up with a spurt of shots and finished with eight in the second half to Georgia Southern’s 10. The Mountaineers were led in shots by Patrick Harrow (Davidson, N.C./North Mecklenburg) with three.
The Eagles put nine of their 16 shots on target with the Mountaineers putting four of 12 on net. Georgia Southern led in corner kicks with five to App State’s four.
The Mountaineers will return to action next Saturday when they travel to Georgia State for a non-conference match. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.
