DAVIDSON, N.C. – Georgia State scored an early goal and added one late to get by Davidson, 2-0, in non-conference men’s soccer action on a rainy Tuesday night at Alumni Stadium.

The setback drops the Wildcats to 4-3-0 overall, while the Panthers move to 5-2-0.

Simon Carlson scored the eventual game-winner 2:51 into the match and Ethan Sassine added an insurance goal for GSU with four seconds left to play.

Down 1-0 early, it appeared Davidson evened the score midway through the opening half, but Vincent Bennage’s goal off a Lucas Hauth rebound was taken off the board for offsides.

With 23:44 left to play, Trey Gardiner had an equalizing chance of his own; however, his low drive from the top of the box missed just wide.

Making his first career start for the ‘Cats, Michael Zemanek led both keepers with four saves, including one on a Georgia State penalty kick with just over five minutes to play.

Up Next
Davidson will continue its homestand Saturday evening when A-10 play resumes against Rhode Island at 6 p.m. on 1992 Team Field.
