Appalachian State University men’s soccer fell to the Panthers of Georgia State on Saturday night, 2-1. The Mountaineers (3-6-6) fell for the second time in as many
games in the state of Georgia. App State lost to Georgia Southern last Saturday before making the return trip to the state to face Georgia State.
The Panthers (8-7-1) were able to get on the board first in the 14th minute of the game Aaron Jones put a free kick off of the crossbar which allowed Stephen McGill to put a header on the rebound and got it past Danny Free (Doncaster, England/Hall Cross School). Free got the start for the Mountaineers and made three saves on the night.
In the 29th minute Georgia State would strike again. Jamal Keene scored for the Panthers on a cross that got deflected in the box. Keene had a quick turn and was able to get it high enough to where Free couldn’t reach it. The goal extended the Panther lead to 2-0.
One minute later, Appalachian would have an answer. In the 30th minute Stanley Broaden (Wilmington, N.C./Eugene Ashley) would score to bring the Mountaineers to within one goal. The goal for Broaden was his fifth of the season. Unfortunately, it was the only goal App State would score on the night.
Georgia State outshot Appalachian by a 13 to five tally with five of them on target to the Mountaineers’ three. Each team only had one corner kick each on the night.
The Mountaineers will return to the pitch on Tuesday when they travel to Raleigh to face ACC member NC State. Kick off is set for 7 p.m.
